The behind-the-scenes tour was led by Warriors President Rick Welts. Welts showed us the view courtside from the cavernous 18,000 seat Chase Center, slightly smaller than Oracle Arena.

"This venue will have a scoreboard that's ten times larger than Oracle's to really enhance the fan experience," said Welts.

Draymond Green even called dibs on where he wants his locker to be.
