FrancoFile: Will they have dirigibles in this alternate reality too? Gotta have dirigibles.
Killer Cars: Yes, getting lost in random "what if team X drafted" hypotheticals is one of my favorite pastimes. I once spent an entire Labor Day weekend mapping out how radically different our world would be today had Ball State been able to recruit Slapnuts McSoggybottom in 2003 instead of Akron.

Also, unlike baseball and football, there is only one basketball team in the Bay Area, so it helps with mass appeal. Perhaps they should have called it the Bay Area Warriors but perhaps they wanted to be unique. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if they changed their name to the San Francisco Warriors when they move back to SF, they might be distancing themselves from the image of Oakland by calling themselves Golden State. /so hella reasons
