Warriors Sign Season Ticket Holder Dennis Herman
Benicia Resident Returns For Seventh Season Under Risk-Free Renewal Agreement

The Golden State Warriors have signed season ticket holder Dennis Herman for the 2011-12 season, co-owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber announced today. A member of the greatest fan base in all of professional sports, Herman came to terms on a risk-free agreement that will ensure his place at Oracle Arena next season.

“This renewal plan is just one small example of our commitment to our shareholders,” said Lacob. “We owe it to our incredible fans, like Dennis, to raise our level of expectations for this organization and to perform at the highest level in all possible phases.”

A native of San Leandro, CA, Dennis has been a Warriors season ticket holder since 2005 and considers Monta Ellis as one of his favorite Warriors players.

“Right now it has to be Monta Ellis. He’s so much fun to watch. I was able to watch him as a rookie and see him mature into the player he is today,” said Herman.

A Warriors fan since he was a child, Herman recalls the 2006-07 Playoffs as one of his most memorable games as a season ticket holder.

“One of my favorite moments was the Baron Davis dunk on Andrei Kirilenko,” said Herman. “Kirilenko got posterized.”

“We feel very fortunate to retain a fan like Dennis for the upcoming season,” said Guber. “Dennis is a valued member of our organization, and one of the key components to the unmatched atmosphere at Oracle Arena. Our goal is to honor and reward our fans’ loyalty in every way possible.”

As a renewed season ticket holder, Herman was automatically entered for the chance to win prizes at a recent Warriors game, including the opportunity to shoot a half court shot for $10,000 cash. See a video recap of his experience below, including the prize package he chose.
