ABC7 News reporter Laura Anthony sat down for an exclusive interview with Warriors President Rick Welts.



At Thursday's shoot around in Oakland, Warriors star Draymond Green said they'll need all the fan support they can get to turn things around and beat the Thunder. "It's always good to get some home cooking. You're in front of your home crowd. We have to bring some energy to the building. We bring the energy and we can also feed off that," he said.

And this fan is taking that job seriously. Alameda businessman Paul Wong was at the printers picking up hundreds of signs reading "We Believe" to stir up some coliseum energy. It's a campaign that's worked before. "Nothing's changed. We just want to build a little confidence and share to the players that we're a 1,000 percent behind them and everything will be alright," he said.

"Today he did a quick 500 run. Last week he did a 10,000 run and he's giving them out to whoever that he sees and he's paying it out of his own pocket there's a lot of heart there," Island Print Express' Joe Dalipe said.

Wong did something similar during the playoffs nine years ago. The "We Believe" campaign back then helped inspire the Warriors and their fans to an upset of the Dallas Mavericks back in 2007.

This year he's added something new, a sign that reads "Dub Peat," which is his way of encouraging his team to repeat as NBA champs and Stef Curry to repeat as MVP. He's halfway there. "Magical things happen in sports and I think that's why we play it," he said.

Wong is giving away copies of the sign underneath the walkway between Oracle Arena and the BART station. He's got one request for everyone to cheer tonight, stand up and mean it.
