Warriors fans probably think of the Spurs, Clippers or Cavaliers as their biggest rivals. But there’s another rivalry just out of sight of the public eye — the Golden State Warriors versus the San Quentin Warriors.

It’s two hours before tipoff, and droves of fans in a sea of blue and gold stand with signs, take selfies, and cheer as they watch the Warriors warm up. Up about 60 steps from the half court sideline, in a section broadcasters call “The Perch,” someone else is warming up, too.

From our partners at the East Bay Express.

San Francisco’s waterfront is booming. It’s become a major destination for tourists and locals, celebrated two World Series wins, and is currently playing host to an international sailing race. There’s a new cruise ship terminal, and a re-invented Exploratorium. And now the waterfront is preparing itself for another huge makeover.
