Joe Lacob takes a pounding, then takes to the radio

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

If you missed it, that’s the video of last night’s boo-fest aimed at Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob over the Monta Ellis trade—smack in the middle of a halftime ceremony to retire the jersey of legendary Warrior Chris Mullin. This morning, Lacob—who says he stayed up all night answering emails from fans—took to KNBR radio to defend himself in a convo with talkers Gary Radnich and Larry Krueger. Bruce Jenkins blogs about it at the 3 Dot Blog, including this:

Krueger asked, “Were you wounded at all? I heard your fiancĂ©e was in tears.”

“She wasn’t too happy,” Lacob said. “You wouldn’t be, either, if you were subjected to that. She’s still with me (laughter). Was I bothered? It wasn’t fun, but more than anything else, it was one of those moments in life where you sit there and say, hmm, I didn’t expect this. What do I do right now?
