Oakland Raiders take out newspaper ad in support of neighboring Warriors

Thursday June 4th, 2015

The Oakland Raiders showed support for their Bay-Area neighbors competing in the NBA Finals by purchasing a full-page ad in Thursday's San Francisco Chronicle.

As the Warriors prepare to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers at Oracle Arena in Game 1 Thursday night, the advertisement features a shot of a triumphant Stephen Curry, fading to Oakland's trademark black at the bottom of the page, and the Raiders' famed "Just Win Baby" slogan, as coined by late owner Al Davis.

It's a pretty cool graphic and nice gesture as the Warriors chase their first championship since 1975. As the series progresses, we'll see if the rest of the bay gets in on the action.

Giants, A's, we're looking at you guys. Sharks? Anyone?
