The season, quite famously, didn’t end in a title. The Warriors lost in the Finals to the Cavaliers and then scooped up Durant as a free agent in the offseason, setting them on their current path, in search of a third straight title. But that 2015-16 season — the only one of the last four that didn’t end at the top of the mountain — still holds a special place in their hearts. Livingston: We won the championship that first year and that was the most joy we had. But the season after, that was the after-party. The win streak to start the season, the 73 wins, that was the after-party. Hey, let’s keep this going.
Behind the scenes, Livingston is currently one of the most important veteran peacemakers. He doesn’t play locker room politics or pick sides. He’s close to both guys and carries a voice respected by everyone in the organization. He’s trying to push this forward but understands the dynamics that drag it back. “People feed off controversy,” Livingston said. “We got a president who basically ran a whole smear campaign and won, you know? Straight controversy. It just keeps going because, look, this will probably be your most read article. This topic gets the most viewers tuning in for the show — Fox, ESPN, all those sports talk shows. It just is what it is. It’s the business.”
