Steve Kerr Gets Honest About The Warriors Potentially Planning To Complete A Three-Peat: "Yeah, My Experience Is When You Win A Championship You Get Better The Next year. If You Keep Going After That, It Starts To Wear You Out."

Steve Kerr Gets Honest About The Warriors Potentially Planning To Complete A Three-Peat: "Yeah, My Experience Is When You Win A Championship You Get Better The Next year. If You Keep Going After That, It Starts To Wear You Out."

Winning NBA Championships might be a tough task for many, but it certainly isn't for Steve Kerr. During his playing days, Kerr was part of the Chicago Bulls and won three rings alongside Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman.

When the Bulls dynasty eventually broke up, Kerr joined coach Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs. With the Spurs, Kerr won two more rings. So, as a player, Kerr finished his career with 5 rings to his name.

But he didn't stop there. He is currently the head coach of the Golden State Warriors and has continued to add more trophies to his cabinet. In the last eight seasons, Kerr has helped the Dubs win four titles. This brings his total tally to nine championships.

His most recent NBA Championship came in the 2021-22 NBA season. The Warriors once again proved to the world why they are still the best team in the world, even without Kevin Durant.

Currently, the Warriors are in a perfect place, and many believe they can go on to complete a three-peat. But it is not as easy as it sounds. In a recent interview, the head coach of the Warriors explained the major differences between the next two years after winning a title.

Via NBC Sports:

"Yeah, my experience is when you win a championship you get better the next year. If you keep going after that, it starts to wear you out. That third year for us, trying to get a three-peat in '19 was brutally difficult. But whether I was a player or now as a coach, you win that first one, there's a freedom that comes with it. There's an excitement, and that carries over into the second year. Given that we just had a two-year opportunity to refill our cups and reenergize, I think we'll be really motivated going into next year, and the guys will have a great chance to have a hell of a season again."

The 56-year-old perfectly explained what's next for the Warriors. He is confident in his team to have another great year.

If the Warriors do end up winning back-to-back NBA Championships, then, as per Kerr's theory, they will have a tough time in completing a three-peat. They failed to do so in the 2019 NBA Finals due to a number of reasons. Can they complete the three-peat this time around? They definitely have the talent to do so.
