Raiders wish Warriors luck with full page ‘Just Win Baby’ ad

The Oakland Raiders are sending their best wishes to the Golden State Warriors via a full-page advertisement in the San Francisco Chronicle as the Dubs get set to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday in Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals.

Here’s a peak at what the ad looked like.

This is not the first time Raiders owner Mark Davis has done this, for he bought a full-page ad for the Warriors when they were in the finals last year. Unfortunately, the ad did not help as Golden State blew the infamous 3-1 lead over Cleveland.

Hopefully, the ad will be better luck in 2017 and will result in the Warriors winning their second title in three years.

If everything goes well for Oakland this fall, maybe next February we will see Warriors owner Joe Lacob taking out his own ad supporting the Raiders at Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis.
