Warriors’ Steve Kerr believes this season will be similar to Year 1 for his coaching staff
The Golden State Warriors will usher in a new era next season as they look to move on from their key losses in the offseason. With a new arena and a new-look roster, head coach Steve Kerr sees a fresh start for the Dubs.
In a recent interview with The Athletic’s Joe Vardon, Kerr said that the atmosphere around him and his coaching staff will be similar to what he felt in 2014 when he started calling the shots for the Warriors.
“That first year we had to implement everything — that takes time. It’s exciting, and that’s what we’re going to do with the new group, so that’s really exciting. That part excites me. It’s going to be much more similar to Year 1 for my staff.”
Golden State won the championship in Kerr’s first season with the team, and although a lot of people are already counting them out as title contenders this upcoming season, the entire team is confident that they can once again shock the rest of the NBA.
And even though the Warriors will obviously start from scratch, Kerr remains optimistic about what they can do moving forward.
“Lot of new beginnings, new arena, new roster, and probably some new things, style of play, strategy. We’ll figure that out as we go. You always have to see how it looks on the court before you can really establish your identity. I’m excited about the challenge and it’s amazing it’s only a couple weeks away.”
The Warriors were able to build one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history in a span of five seasons, and now that they have officially moved to Chase Center, they will look to write another chapter to what has become a well-respected franchise.
