"The game gets worse as time goes on", Kerr joked, according to the Bay Area News Group's Jimmy Durkin.

Golden State are one game away from becoming the first team to go 16-0 in the postseason but it has not stopped the critics - Magic Johnson, Julius Irving and Rasheed Wallace - from doubting the Warriors. The guys in the '50s would've destroyed everybody. And maybe these former players wouldn't be wrong if their claim was that their team would've been better if it was cultivated in the same era and in the same way as the Warriors. Players get weaker, smaller, less skilled.

Golden State's got the best shooter in National Basketball Association history in Stephen Curry alongside one of the next best shooters in league history in Klay Thompson. "I can't explain it".

"I saw Dennis was complaining about resting players", a chuckling Kerr said back in April. But I feel the last four or five years I've definitely continued to get better and better, and smarter. "He just took a night off whenever he wanted, so he can't complain".

Though he still deals with intense head and neck pain, the Warriors' head coach was well enough to return to the sideline before Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Two seasons ago, before his surgeries and subsequent pain issues, Kerr would frequently hoist 'em up at practice, often in three-point and free-throw competitions with Stephen Curry.

Never change, Steve. Never change.
