Warriors to Change Uniforms?

And the image could garner even more national and international exposure.

The Golden State Warriors basketball team, often maligned for not identifying its hometown of Oakland in its name, is considering a new uniform design that would incorporate a sketch of the span, much like the classic "The City" uniforms with an image of the Golden Gate Bridge that the team sported as the San Francisco Warriors.

"It’s a great branding opportunity for Oakland," said Donald MacDonald, the San Francisco architect who designed the single-tower span and has spoken with the Warriors. "It gives (Oakland) a gateway, and at night, it’s going to be spectacular."
