Next Up ... the Warriors?

Having just recently closed on its acquisition of Sun, Oracle's Larry Ellison is apparently turning his sights on more interesting prey - the Golden State Warriors.  In response to a question at an Oracle employee event about likelihood that he might try to buy the Warriors, Ellison responded, "I'm trying. I'm trying. Unfortunately you can't have a hostile takeover of a basketball team.

That's unfortunate, because with the single exception of the 2007-08 season, the Warriors and their poor fans haven't been over .500 (or made the playoffs) since 1993-94.
