Earlier today Golden State Warriors president Robert Rowell stepped down to pursue other business opportunities. In other words he was fired and allowed to save face. Rowell was a terrible team president and has not done much to improve the Warriors during his time with the franchise. He may have been around for the “we believe” run but I don’t believe he had anything to do with that. I think Chris Mullin deserves a lot of credit for the playoff run and Rowell deserves most of the credit for ruining everything positive Chris Mullin tried to do as GM.
This was a smart and obvious move for Joe Lacob. Rowell brought nothing to the table besides a history of bad choices. Next up, Larry Riley, then the Warriors will have done as I have prayed and cleaned house. So please don’t stop now Mr. Lacob. This team needed a total overhaul and you are doing just that. I will be excited to see who the Warriors bring in as the new team president.
I’m actually just excited to see change coming to the Warriors. I am so glad to see the new owners trying to take this team in another direction. it really seems like they care. Something Cohan never did.
