Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr knew what he was doing when he stepped in to coach these players. He made sure they knew to play the right way and to show up professionally and make correct decisions on the basketball court. From Stephen Curry to Klay Thompson to Draymond Green to Andrew Bogut to Harrison Barnes, these Warriors showed up to play ball and contribute in each and every way as possible. There wasn’t anything to ask from them. They’d do it for the team.
The Golden State Warriors are the 2015 NBA champions and they did it by beating Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers four times in a best of seven game series. Steve Kerr’s Warriors are the golden standard of playing basketball. If only our representatives at the U.S. Men’s National Basketball team at the Olympic Games could do that feat of what the Golden State Warriors did. 80% of life is showing up, and these Warriors did do that. The Cleveland Cavaliers resigned Kevin Love to a multi-year deal and the New Orleans Pelicans inked Anthony Davis to a five-year extension. The Toronto Raptors signed DeMarre Carroll away from the Atlanta Hawks for a four year, $60 million deal and the San Antonio Spurs signed Danny Green to a 45 million dollar deal for four years.
