Warriors Honor Oakland on Special Night
Jan. 20 marked a special day for a multitude of reasons. Wednesday night’s broadcast got underway with a video honoring an Oakland native who made history earlier in the day: Kamala Harris, who became the first woman and first Black person to take the office of Vice President. She revealed a gift received from the Warriors in the form of a framed, personalized Oakland Forever jersey with “Madame VP” on the back and autographed by Stephen Curry.
“I will proudly, proudly display this in the office of the Vice President of the United States,” said the Vice President in the video. “I cannot thank you enough and you always bring such joy and pride to me as a daughter of Oakland.”
But the newly inaugurated Vice President is not the only person who was ready to represent Oakland, as another town native and Dubs forward Juan Toscano-Anderson was ready to wear his hometown across his chest as the team got set to debut the jersey Wednesday night.
Once Vice President Harris got her jersey, it was time for the squad to get theirs.
And what’s a nice looking jersey without a court and the ambience to match? Chase Center was decked out in the Oakland Forever theme for Wednesday’s game.
As the Warriors have done all regular season, fans have been welcome to be a part of home games as part of the Dub Hub, a virtual experience with exclusive views of the player tunnel, virtual interaction with other Warriors fans, and customizable signs to cheer for the Dubs during the game. You never know who you’ll meet!
This won’t be the last time these jerseys make their appearance either. So get set to represent Oakland Forever, Dub Nation. Check out the Warriors Shop to get geared up, and represent on your phone with style with these wallpapers:
And the Warriors capped the exciting day off with a 121-99 win over visiting Western Conference rival San Antonio Spurs.
