The Golden State Warriors are relocating from Oakland's Oracle Arena to their new home in San Francisco at the $500 million Chase Center. It was back in the 1970s when the Warriors moved from 'Frisco to Oakland and changed their title to the "Golden State." The team's point and shooting guard Steph Curry has played his entire NBA career for the Warriors in Oakland, and as they leave the city they've grown to love, Curry wanted to gift his supporters with a special token of appreciation.
