Golden State Warriors Rumors
Walton said the team isn’t worried about the streak. “I think it just adds pressure,” Walton said. “It makes other teams want to beat us that much more, to be the first team to end the streak. WE have guys that embrace pressure and they seem to play better and are more sharp the more pressure and the bigger the stage.”
Jerry, you know as well as anybody how difficult it is to repeat as a champion. What is the biggest obstacle in the way of any team trying to repeat as NBA champions? First of all, there is health. Then there is the ability to go out there and lay it on the line every night. Some teams relax and rest on their laurels, but we have some really highly competitive people. Plus, we are young. Those younger players are going to strive to get even better, and that will put us in the position to be another dangerous team in the playoffs. Think about it. We won 67 games and never lost three games in a row. We never had any juicy items for the press to get into and I attribute that to this incredible group of kids that we have, and I am old enough to call them kids. They are just wonderful young men who get along like I have never seen a team get along. Success breeds success, and I think these people love to win. At the end of the day, I think that is why we will be very, very good again, if we can stay healthy.
