Steve Crociani has been watching the Warriors since their time in the Cow Palace. He'll see them in much nicer digs next season.
The longtime season-ticket holder will have season tickets next year for the Warriors' first at Chase Center -- on the house. Crociani learned it was happening with a surprise announcement in the third quarter of Game 2 of Warriors-Clippers on Monday.
"I'm amazed and surprised and shocked and happy as can be," Crociani told NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke. "This is awesome! It's amazing."
Crociani said his two favorite memories as a Warriors fan were the team's first two NBA championships. The Rick Barry-led Warriors and the Steph Curry-led Warriors won their titles four decades apart.
"The 40 years in between was a long wait," Crociani told Burke. "But [it was] well worth it. Both of those teams were awesome."
