Warriors’ Steve Kerr reiterates the truth about the Lakers having LeBron James, Anthony Davis
Steve Kerr and the Golden State Warriors are coming off of back to back wins against Western Conference opponents and finally seem to be hitting their stride after two blowout losses to start the season. The Warriors seem to be regaining their form as legitimate playoff contenders, even without Klay Thompson, as they defeated Anthony Davis, LeBron James, and the Lakers on Tuesday before taking down the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.
The Warriors’ recent victory over the Lakers proves that.
That is not to say that the Warriors are the better team because that simply is not true.
Even coach Steve Kerr knows that the Lakers are the real deal.
Admiring the makeup of the Lakers’ roster, Kerr commented on how well Anthony Davis and LeBron James compliment each other on and off the court, per Dan Woike of The Los Angeles Times.
“That’s been kind of a hallmark of a lot of championship teams, when you have championship-caliber stars who complement each other on and off the court,” Kerr said.
“They have two of the very best players in the game who complement each other very well and are very comfortable in their respective roles,” Kerr said. “It’s obviously a hell of a foundation upon which to build.”
Kerr knows a thing or two about what championship DNA looks like considering he has been apart of three separate dynasties. Whether it’s the Bulls, Warriors, or Spurs, Kerr had a front-row seat to understanding the importance of complimentary superstars in winning championships.
The Lakers superstar duo and company, however, looked flat against the Warriors in their matchup on Sunday and the Warriors left the Staples Center with a win.
This just goes to show you that any team can win in the NBA on any given night. Having Stephen Curry and Draymond Green helps though.
The Warriors are looking to stamp their ticket back into the playoffs and hopefully back into the finals. They are likely going to have to go through the Lakers to get there.
Maybe then Kerr won’t be so quick to express his admiration for the Purple and Gold.
