It started as a growl, probably a few dozen fans intent on booing Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob as he finished the ceremony to retire Chris Mullin's jersey number.
Just a growl. Loud, unruly, but not overwhelming.
Then Lacob started to talk -- and the boos grew louder and angrier.
Then Lacob stopped talking and frowned, and the boos built and built and kept going. Then he said "now that we've got that over with." and the boos cascaded on him and kept cascading until some kind of Warriors history was made.
By the time Mullin walked back to center court to hug Lacob and urge the "best fans in the league" to channel their passion towards positivity -- and to have faith in Lacob's new regime -- it turned into theater.
