It’s impossible to fairly place a team like the Golden State Warriors in the context of history within 24 hours after a title — but welcome to the Internet, where we try to do it anyway.
I think in 15 years, we will look back on this Golden State team as the team that ushered in a new era of NBA basketball. One where teams want to play fast and small, to shoot the three, and to count on motion and ball movement to get good looks. One that is entertaining to watch. We started to see the evolution with Miami and San Antonio the last two seasons, but Golden State took it all to another level.
Jenna Corrado and I discuss that in this latest PBT Extra, but I think to solidify their legacy they need to get back to another Finals or two, at the very least.
