Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was in attendance during Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals and was able to see the Golden State Warriors dethrone Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James for the second time.
It was just a few days ago that Del Rio picked the Warriors to win Game 5 and he, like most of America, predicted correctly.
However, he had the incredible opportunity to be able to witness history live at Oracle Arena, via Del Rio’s Twitter account.

It is no coincidence that so many people from the organization are hanging around the Golden State team as greatness attracts greatness.
Oakland should hope that they can learn from the Warriors on what it takes to become great, manage high expectations and win championships.
All in all, this could just be the start of a very special time in the Bay Area.
