Steve Kerr shuts down talks about end of Warriors’ dynasty
The recent turn of events has caused many to believe that the Warriors’ dynasty has officially come to an end. Kerr, however, is not ready throw in the towel just yet.
Do you wonder if this is the end of the dynasty?
Kerr: “No. I don’t think in those terms.”

If Kerr is worried about the potential decrease in star power next season, he is doing a solid job of hiding it. The Warriors were banking on the return of forward Kevin Durant to help spark a potential comeback during the NBA Finals. Unfortunately, his return was short-lived after he ruptured his Achilles in Game 5. His injury was then followed up by news that shooting guard Klay Thompson suffered a torn ACL.
As a result, there is now plenty of speculation regarding their futures.
Recent reports indicate that both players are slated to miss some serious time next season. Despite the long-term uncertainty, Golden State reportedly plans to offer each player a max contract this offseason.
It is clear that the Warriors are looking to do right by their two superstars; however, it remains to be seen whether or not they are willing to stay.
Center DeMarcus Cousins has also indicated that he would be interested in potentially staying in Golden State. Considering how this year’s finals played out, the loss of any of their key players could spell the end of their championship run.
