There seems to be some controversy over the decision. Ellison has claimed that he submitted a higher bid but his bid may have come too late. "This is my dream come true," said Lacob, in a statement and he stated that he and Peter Guber are committed to building the team into a championship organization that will "make all of us in the Bay Area proud."
