Now, Green is just one person with one opinion, but his feelings on chasing wins provides a tremendous amount of insight. Last season, while quite the ride was a one-time deal. Steve Kerr isn’t going to let his guys break their backs chasing history.
He’s going to maximize rest time and make sure that his guys are best prepared for the postseason. Now, it’s going to take a bit of an adjustment incorporating another superstar, but by the time the calendar turns, this team should be in full gear and firing on all cylinders.
They’re going to rack up plenty of wins this season, but they don’t need the burden of trying to make history again. The only history that they need to focus on is winning another championship and that’s what Green understands.
