Steve Kerr reveals why there’s no Dubs version of ‘The Last Dance’
The release of “The Last Dance,” a 10-part docuseries detailing the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls and their pursuit of a second three-peat has raised the potential of having a similar modern-era docuseries down the road. The Golden State Warriors are the closest team to resembling that era of dominance, but head coach Steve Kerr does not think there is one to make just yet.
“You think about our situation with the Warriors, and we didn’t have a final season,” Kerr told Sam Amick of The Athletic. “We’re trying to keep this thing going. A lot of our players are still here, and we’re trying to rev it back up, so there was no sense of finality. If anything, we’re trying to avoid that.
“So having everybody in, inviting the world in and inviting cameras in and saying, ‘Hey, we want to capture the final days of this run,’ it’s like you’re basically telling your players that you believe this is ending, and also you’re violating a principle of the sanctity of the locker room. So it never occurred to me, nor does it now, to do anything of the sort for our team.”
The Warriors admittedly did not allow for all-access cameras to follow them throughout their rise among the Western Conference, not even their recent 2018-19 season, the last with Kevin Durant.
As far as Kerr sees it, there’s much more to be done before the Warriors can film a last dance of their own.
