Byron Scott and Isiah Thomas offer tremendous praise to Warriors’ offense

With the type of dominance the Golden State Warriors have shown in the first two games of the NBA Finals, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many are giving them high praise for the way they’re currently playing. After Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue called them the best he’s ever seen, two former champions have also joined in the conversation.

Former Los Angeles Lakers player and head coach Byron Scott admitted, via Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated, that he thinks the Warriors own the best offense he’s ever witnessed.

“I can honestly say that might be the best offense I’ve ever seen. So many weapons and so many great scorers. They can beat you with their shot and they can beat you off the dribble, which creates even more problems.”

Detroit Pistons great Isiah Thomas echoed his statement and also added that Golden State is comparable to the Showtime Lakers of Scott in the 1980s.

“This Golden State Warriors team that we are watching is going to go down as one of the best teams to ever play and should be talked about in that light. You’ve got to compare their offense [to Showtime], but the eras are so different. You don’t have the Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar] factor. But if you’re talking Magic [Johnson], Byron Scott, Michael Cooper and all that, then you’ve got to say [Kevin] Durant, [Klay] Thompson, [Stephen] Curry, Draymond Green and all them. They’re comparable to them. The only thing is, ain’t no Kareem. I’m happy to be on this Earth right now watching these young jokers play. They’re doing it.”

Should the Dubs go on and win the championship, and even sweep the defending champions, they could very well enter the conversation of being one of the best teams in NBA history.
