West was interviewed after the parade by NBC Sports Bay Area’s Kerith Burke. He was asked about his cryptic post-Finals quote where he said some of the adversity behind the scenes would’ve blown our minds this season. He walked it back a little, saying it was more a critique of the idea that everything was easy for them. “It wasn’t so much a thing,” West said. “I was hearing this narrative that this wasn’t a difficult year or somehow, because we have a great and talented group, then somehow we don’t experience ups and downs like other teams do. I think that’s a bit unfair. We handled some internal challenges. The strength of this group is that stuff didn’t come out.”
The Warriors no doubt battled complacency, repetitive Steph Curry injuries, a scary Patrick McCaw fall, a significant challenge by the Rockets and more, but nothing appeared abnormal. On Monday, Kerr and Myers said they didn’t know what West could’ve been talking about. “I don’t know if anything would really blow your mind,” Kerr said. “It was a difficult season and there were lots of moments where it became more difficult, but I didn’t think it was anything unusual given the state of our team and the length of this journey. Nothing, to me, was that shocking.”
David West went deeper on Curry’s indelible impact on basketball. “Dude’s one of the greatest on the planet,” West said, orating as if it were an intense halftime speech. “Y’all ain’t giving him enough credit. He doing more for the game than Wilt Chamberlain did, but y’all steadily riding that man. This man changed the whole way the game is played. The whole way the game is played. He’s done with the 3-point shot what Wilt did with the dunk. C’mon, man. Give the man his love. The man is a game-changer. He’s revolutionized the game. Nothing you can do to take that shit away. But he’s humble man. Steph is not a selfish guy. He’s not a selfish individual. He’s got a lot of things with him, and behind him, pressure. None of that bothers him. And, again, he’s a game changer.”
