The Warriors host New Orleans Pelicans at Oracle Arena in a little more than two hours. From Oakland to San Francisco and beyond, Warriors fans are geared up to welcome back their NBA champs.

"Today's a big day. Got to protect our home," said one Warriors fan.

Coming off last year's long-awaited championship season, the Warriors will try to follow-up with another title, something loyal fans are pretty confident they can pull off.

"I expect them do it again. I think they'll come out on top again. I've got faith in them," said Allana Booza, a Warriors fan.

Warriors fan Ramella Atkins told ABC7 News his predictions for the season. "Going to take it, hands down," Atkins said.

As one would expect, sales of official Warrior gear have been off the hook these past few monthsm, but one man decided to pass on the factory-made stuff for something with a little more bling.

"I had it custom made," Warriors fan Dan Stevens said. "It's game time, it's party time, we're going to do it again, repeat."
