Kevin Garnett Says The Warriors Are In 'Championship Mode': "They're Playing On Another, Another Level Right Now."

The Golden State Warriors are having a sweet moment in the 2022 NBA playoffs, confirming they are rightful championship contenders this season. The Dubs started things off the best way, dominating MVP candidate Nikola Jokic and his Denver Nuggets, winning the series in five games. 

Now, they're getting ready to face the Memphis Grizzlies, a team that will surely put a bigger fight than the undermanned Nuggets. Ja Morant is yet to unlock his level in the postseason, and that could be bad news for the Warriors. Still, they have their original Big 3 healthy, plus an up and coming star in Jordan Poole, who is expected to be the future of the franchise. 

Their current present makes their fans dream about another championship this season, and they're not the only ones who think they can pull it off. Boston Celtics and Minnesota Timberwolves legend Kevin Garnett recently claimed that the Dubs are in 'championship mode' and they only need continuity to reach the promised land. 

During the most recent edition of his SHOWTIME show 'KG Certified', the 2008 NBA champion had this to say (1:30):

"I'm gonna have the Warriors because I feel like they've hit a point where they, they're in championship mode and it ain't about who's doing it, how they doing it, it's about playing together, continuity, talking to me like you've seen the cylinders are firing they, they're playing on another, another level right now."

After not finishing the regular season on a strong note, the Warriors shook that off and leveled up, dominating the Nuggets, who couldn't do anything to stop the Big 4. Stephen Curry came off the bench in several games, leaving the offensive burden to Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson. 

They easily got rid of the Nuggets and many people think it'll be a similar situation with the Grizzlies. This team looks as dangerous as ever, and many folks outside the team are warning the league about the championship aspirations of the Dubs.
