Is the league trying to shove Warriors owner Cohan out the door?

Mar 24, 2010, 8:42 PM EDT

The Mercury News reports that the Warriors have hired Galatioto Sports Partners to facilitate the sale of their franchise. GSP is an outsourced sports finance and management firm that can help organize the sale in a professional manner.

But as the Mercury News points out, there’s something spooky about the involvement of GSP. Not only is Warriors owner Chris Cohan not known as the outsourcing type, but GSP’s Vice Chariman is Russ Granik, a remarkably connected individual the article suggests was in line to follow David Stern for years.

It would not be surprising to find that the league has decided to get involved with the Warriors sale with how messy the situation has become in a golden goose market for the league. It may not be the most comfortable thing to imagine, but that’s really one of the primary goals of the league, isn’t it? To protect the health of the league?

This isn’t the league injecting poison into a system, it’s bringing in a specialist named Roto-Rooter.
