Warriors named 'Franchise of the Decade,' president Rick Welts discusses honor

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The Golden State Warriors have been named "Franchise of the Decade" across all professional sports teams by the Sports Business Journal/Daily.

The journal said that the team demonstrated innovation over the last 10 years, leading the league and all professional sports in a variety of business categories.

Three NBA championships didn't hurt either.

The brand new state-of-the-art arena in San Francisco's Mission Bay Neighborhood, the Chase Center, was just the cherry on top of a very tall take for the journal.

Head coach Steve Kerr called the recognition an honor, and credited the owners, the team, and the community for the decade of success.
