As Forbes wrote in February:

The Golden State Warriors are leaving Oracle Arena, the NBA's oldest building, next season for the $1 billion Chase Center. The reigning league champs have secured $2 billion in contractually obligated income from sponsorships, suites and season ticket holder fees for the new arena. Look for the Warriors to challenge the Knicks as the NBA's leading revenue generator.

The inaugural event at Chase Center -- a joint performance by Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony -- is slated for Sept. 6. The first basketball game will be an exhibition contest between the Warriors and Lakers on Oct. 5.

Warriors owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber bought the franchise for $450 million in 2010.
