Kawakami: Warriors' San Francisco Arena Iffy for 2017

Here's the last part of my conversation with Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob yesterday, which I'm posting separately from the discussion of the team's personnel moves because, well, this is a wholly different topic. And, given the adrenaline-spiked atmosphere of the Warriors' acquisitions of Andre Iguodala & Co., this is a VERY different mood: For a lot of reasons, things aren't going nearly so buoyantly for the ownership group's plans to build an arena at Piers 30/32 in San Francisco by 2017. As Lacob points out, most of these obstacles were expected before the Warriors ever announced their intentions -- the politics and the logistics of building on a decrepit Bay pier was never going to be easy and the Warriors knew they would have to jump through a hundred hoops before they even started the physical process.
