The Warriors are building a fancy new arena that will cost fans a lot of money to enter.

So, what’s the next obvious step?

Chris Haynes and Marc Spears of ESPN:

With Chase Center scheduled to be the new home of the Golden State Warriors in time for the 2019-20 season, the team has submitted a bid to host the NBA All-Star Game, league sources tell ESPN.

The bid submission year is murky. However, league sources say the earliest it would be is for 2021.

It’s hard to see the NBA not rewarding its flagship franchise – which plays in a place with pleasing winter weather – with an All-Star game. Tough luck for the other bidders.
