Larry Ellison

  1. Of course Michael Heisley is in talks with Larry Ellison, things were going too well

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    Best season in franchise history from an overall success and excitement standpoint. First playoff game victory. First playoff series victory. Significant improvements in fan interest and long-term viability of on-court production. Things have been going really well in Memphis, Tennessee when it comes to the Grizzlies. So, of course, this is happening. From the Memphis Commercial-Appeal:…

  2. The NBA’s Anaheim Kings? Come, connect the dots with us.

    With the latest stadium deal now dead in Sacramento, it doesn’t take much to get people in certain other markets dreaming of the NBA in their home town. Pictures of DeMarcus Cousins dominating in the paint and Tyreke Evans getting treatment for plantar fasciitis in their city fill the minds of young children with NBA…

  3. Larry Ellison says he tried to buy Hornets

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    Larry Ellison — founder of Oracle and one of the richest men walking the planet — lost out on his bid to buy the Golden State Warriors last year. (Actually, his bid might have won but it was submitted after the deadline.) He still wants an NBA team and recently tried to buy the New…

  4. New Warriors owners not sure how they outbid Larry Ellison either

    Nov 17, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    There was a given going into the sale of the Warriors — if he wanted the team, Silicon Valley mogul Larry Ellison could win the auction. Easy. You know how rich Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is? Trail Blazer owner Paul Allen (he of the ground floor of Microsoft)? Ellison is worth more than both of…

  5. Pistons about to sell for less than Warriors

    Aug 16, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Last December, Forbes estimated the value of the Golden State Warriors at $315 million, yet when the team hit the open market, it sold for a record $450 million (although that deal has yet to be finalized). So with the Detroit Pistons valued at $479 million, they should sell for… Nope. They are not going…

  6. Warriors are finally sold, but not to Larry Ellison

    Jul 15, 2010, 4:05 PM EDT

    UPDATE 4:05 pm: Tim Kawakam of the San Jose Mercury News got this statement from Larry Ellison: “Although I was the highest bidder, Chris Cohan decided to sell to someone else.” Could still be some fireworks to come. Also, look for Lacob to be the active owner, the guy running the team.2:15 pm: According to…

  7. Golden State down to two bidders for franchise, ownership change can't happen soon enough

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    Anthony Morrow is being allowed to walk to New Jersey. Anthony Randolph will not be back next year, shipped out as part of a deal for the much more expensive David Lee (who had said he was excited by playing with Morrow, sorry man). It’s hard to understand exactly what the grand plan is of…

  8. Larry Ellison combines bid with existing Warrior minority owners to form super majority

    Jun 6, 2010, 1:14 AM EDT

    Larry Ellison — the richest man bidding on the Warriors, the man who would be the richest owner in basketball, the man who could write the biggest check tomorrow — may win the Warriors by bringing in partners. Specifically, existing partners in the team. A group of investors who currently own 20 percent of the…

  9. Four finalists left bidding for Golden State Warriors

    Jun 2, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The possible sale of the Golden State Warriors is moving along quickly. Probably a lot more quickly than Don Nelson would like, as he is likely toast as coach once the sale is done. Associated Press is reporting that there are four “finalists” bidders left in the running. Larry Ellison, the founder and CEO of…

  10. Could the Warriors really be worth over $400 million?

    May 28, 2010, 1:40 PM EDT

    The Warriors continued their tired march as one of the most poorly run organizations in the NBA this season, with their 26-56 record nothing more than a reflection of the team’s misfortune from top to bottom. There is undeniable talent on the Golden State roster — had Steph Curry started rolling in November rather than…

  11. Warriors draw plenty of interest from bidders, including Larry Ellison, but no magic numbers

    May 19, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    The good news: There are a lot of people who want to buy the Golden State Warriors — including the insanely rich Larry Ellison. The bad news: None of them offered the $400 million plus that current owner Chris Cohan was hoping to get for the team. Ellison, the owner of Oracle computers, put in…

  12. Today is the day the Warriors owner finds his team not worth as much as he hoped.

    May 17, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    I’m sure you knew this already, because you and your drinking buddies had been working on your submission over the weekend: Today is the first day to submit formal bids to buy the Golden State Warriors. This is where wishes meet reality. Like when you put a home up for sale and you work with…

  13. Golden State sale could drag out a while. Sorry Warriors fans.

    May 13, 2010, 2:04 PM EDT

    There’s still time for you — the first bids to buy the Golden State Warriors aren’t due until next week. If you have an extra $400 million or so laying around it can be all yours. You can even go in with a couple of your drinking buddies, so you each only have to come…
