Athletics’ Liam Hendriks Rips Into The Golden State Warriors: ‘They Became Assh–es’
Well, it looks like Liam Hendriks is not going to miss the Golden State Warriors as they get set to play in a new arena and in a new city.
The Oakland Athletics pitcher told Ethan Strauss of The Athletic that the Warriors started to treat them differently once they got good and started winning championships.
“I don’t follow the Warriors. They treated us like s–t over here so we don’t care for them much.
“When the Warriors sucked and the A’s were good, the A’s would give them tickets. When the Warriors became good they decided to cut all ties and become assh–es. So, no love lost for them leaving.”
Starting this upcoming season, the Warriors will begin playing in their new arena, the Chase Center, in San Francisco.
That will end their nearly five decade-long tenure in Oakland’s Oracle Arena. The A’s play next door at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
Hendricks also claimed their behavior extended to their parking lot attendants, where he said he was once told that his status as a player on the Athletics means less than that of an average Warriors fan. “I got told I’m not as important as a player for the A’s as a fan for the Warriors is,” he recalled. “He wouldn’t let us out of the F Lot. We’re trying to get out and he wouldn’t let us out.”
Hendricks won’t be too sad when the raiders leave for Las Vegas next season as well.
“We can make some improvements after they leave,” Hendriks said, per Strauss. “We can take their clubhouse because their clubhouse is way nicer than ours.”
The All-Star reliever is under contract through the 2020 season.
