2. But because of the glass facade, you'll actually have a killer view of the bridge from INSIDE the arena.

3. Also being on the water creates a pretty awesome boardwalk situation outside the arena.

4. The new arena would move the Warriors from Oakland to San Francisco in 2017, and would mean giving up one of the best home court advantages in basketball, the very college-like atmosphere of Oracle Arena.
