Steve Kerr Throws Shade At Players Who Say They Could've Beaten Warriors

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr speaks after Game 3 of basketball's NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland early Thursday

"Honestly. When I was in TV, I was doing Warriors games for years, every year they were one of the worst defensive teams in the league". And maybe these former players wouldn't be wrong if their claim was that their team would've been better if it was cultivated in the same era and in the same way as the Warriors. But that hasn't stopped the takes that teams like the 1996 Chicago Bulls or the "Showtime" Los Angeles Lakers of the 1980s could handle Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Co. if they played each other today. The guys in the 50s would've destroyed everybody. It's weird how human evolution.goes in reverse in sports.

Per ESPN's Marc J. Spears, Kerr said Jackson made the Warriors a "great defensive team" prior to his arrival. "But I don't expect anybody on the outside who really doesn't know the game to look at me as a defender because once you're labeled something that's what you're going to be".

Kerr is not new to the trolling business. He got plenty of rest ... or went to Vegas or WrestleMania. The Warriors have yet to lose a postseason game and now own a 3-0 series lead over the defending National Basketball Association champion Cleveland Cavaliers, giving them a pretty solid single-season résumé.

If Kerr wants to get sassy on everyone about these pointless debates, it seems it's fair for him to do so.

"I've gotten better, and 2013 is when I feel I really turned the corner as a defender".

Never change, Steve. Never change.
