With the Western Conference Finals headed to Oakland, Warriors fans have been anxiously waiting for this four-day layover to reach its end.

Home-court advantage at Oracle Arena is unlike any other, just ask Warriors legend Baron Davis and 10-time All-Star Paul Pierce.

“There’s no better arena to play than Oracle Arena,” said Davis, the former leader of the “We Believe” group. “This crowd gets your confidence going in high-demand to where you feel like anything is possible, and you’re playing off the vibrations of the way that they cheer and celebrate you.”

Pierce is an Oakland and remembers the raucous scene dating back to his childhood.

“It’s definitely one of the best arenas in all of sports,” Pierce said. “True fanbase, very loyal… now that they have a championship team, it just seems like it’s on another level.”
