Warriors honor fomer player Tom Tolbert with urinal in Chase Center
The Golden State Warriors are paying tribute to Tom Tolbert with a urinal at the Chase Center.
According to a press release on the stadium’s official website, Tolbert, who played for the Warriors from 1989-1992, “jokingly asked for a statue in his honor to be on the premises of the soon-to-be Warriors’ new home.”
Instead, the Warriors dedicated a urinal, “The Tom Tolbert Urinal,” to him. “Tom, as general manager of Chase Center, it is my distinct pleasure to dedicate a urinal to you,” Chase Center general amanger Kim stone said in the press release. “The sign reads, ‘Chase Center, the Tom Tolbert Urinal. Chase Center First Flush, June 17, 2019.'”

Tolbert said the urinal is “quite an honor,” per Chase Center’s official website.
I’ve got to tell you, it’s quite an honor. Ever since I was a little kid, I never dreamed of playing in the NBA, that dream was too big for me, but to have my own urinal, wow.
The only misgiving I have is that I went to the bathroom right before I came, so I won’t be able to dedicate it in the manner that’s appropriate for a urinal. So, we’re gonna do the best we can.
Like a lot of people have said: when you urinate, you think Tom Tolbert. That will never be more true than right here in the media restroom.
The Warriors will move into the Chase Center beginning in the 2019-20 NBA season. Not only do they have a brand new stadium, but they have a way of reminding the fans of Tom Tolbert – all they have to do is take a bathroom break and check out his spanking new urinal.
