Steph responds to BD’s ‘Our company believe’ vs. KD-era Warriors declare initially appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Steph Curry understands Baron Davis’ state of mind, and, naturally, has excellent regard for the previous Warriors guard.
However Curry likewise was the centerpiece of the best collection of skill in NBA history. The gravitational pull of which the NBA’s excellent leviathan focused on.
So when he heard that Davis informed Dorrell Wright that he thought the “We Believe” Warriors would take the 2016-17 Warriors to 7 video games in a series, Curry needed to provide Davis a little jab.
“I expect nothing less from BD,” Curry stated after the Warriors’ win over the Chicago Bulls on Monday. “BD was nice. Don’t get me wrong. BD was nice. But he probably wouldn’t be a good GM if he thinks that.”
Davis thought the “We Believe” Warriors gritty design would assist them press the Curry-Kevin Durant Warriors to the limitation in stated theoretical match.
“It’s going to go seven games,” Davis informed Wright. “They got some firepower. We ain’t gonna fold, though. The thing is, we’re not going to try and punk them, you know what I mean? We’re just going to play them hard. We’re not going to bully them, but it’s not gonna be like, y’all are about to blow us out. Everything is going to be mano-a-mano, a confrontation, and hold your man.”

The “We Believe” Warriors were led by Davis, Al Harrington, Monta Ellis, Steven Jackson and Jason Richardson. They had more size than the Curry-Durant goliath, which Davis thinks would assist them.
“I think we were more athletic, scrappier and we could actually match up with them,” Davis stated. “Like I said they had a great team defense. So we would have some issues figuring out where the mismatches were, but we were more pick-and-roll and iso-oriented. I like Al Harrington with Draymond Green one-on-one. I like myself posting up anybody on that team. We can post too. It would be interesting. It would be a hell of a series.”
Obviously, the problem Davis and the “We Believe” Warriors deal with would be the shooting expertise of the 2016-17 Warriors. Curry, Durant, Klay Thompson and Co. had the capability to turn the switch for 7 minutes, turn a five-point deficit into a 20-point lead and after that return to drifting, having actually ethered their challenger without barely perspiring.
The theoretical match would be an enjoyable one for Warriors fans, however Curry isn’t sure it would be as long of a series as Davis thinks.
