For fans of Duke, Butler, Michigan State, and West Virginia, reaching the 2010 Final Four was a great accomplishment. However, only one of the four would ultimately triumph, with sentimental favorite Butler losing a nail-biter to traditional power Duke.
As of May 27th, Golden State Warrior fans have a new Final Four: the list of potential candidates for ownership of the franchise has been narrowed from twelve to under a hand-full.
And while the underdog is often the media (and fan) darling of the NCAA's, many Warriors fans will no doubt root for the Goliath in this contest: Larry Ellison.
According to the article at Sports Illustrated, Ellison is the only finalist that has been named so far.
Also encouraging is the fact that final bids could be submitted in "nearly a month" (before the draft). However, the final might not take place until "the end of the summer."
All in all, though, it's good news that the sale is at least progressing. If Ellison (or Mark Mastrov) wins this Final Four, the Warriors franchise and fans will have had a successful off-season.
