Warriors Host Asian Heritage Night

October 22, 2010

No, we didn't land LeBron, Amar'e, or even Demarcus. But Golden State Warriors fans still have plenty to be excited about for the upcoming NBA season: new addition David Lee, rising star Steph Curry, and last season's sixth-leading scorer, Jeremy Li -- ahem, Monta Ellis.

Those of you who get all hot and bothered for independent Asian American periodicals and that wondrous article of clothing known as the "free T-shirt" can now add next Friday's Asian Heritage Night to that list.

On Friday, October 29th, the Warriors host the Los Angeles Clippers at Oracle Arena in Oakland. Grab a ticket and you'll also get access to an exclusive Q&A session with Warriors rookie Jeremy Lin after the game and a commemorative Asian Heritage Night T-shirt.

Not to mention -- a portion of each ticket will benefit local Asian American community organizations, including San Francisco Hep B Free and the AsianWeek foundation.

And if all of that isn't compelling enough, Hyphen is a media sponsor for the event. So yeah, you pretty much have to go.

Get your tickets here.
