Steve Kerr Responds To "Last Dance Vibes" With Current Warriors Roster

Head coach Steve Kerr of the Warriors was part of an amazing Bulls team in the late 90s as a player. In fact, it was portrayed in the heralded "Last Dance" documentary that aired on Netflix three years ago. So, Kerr knows a thing or two about dynasties. As a result, he was asked about the core of the Warriors team being dismantled after the post-season, and his response might go against what most might believe. 

On a radio interview with 95.7 The Game, the host wondered if it will be Kerr's last game tonight coaching the "big three." Kerr simply said "No" quite emphatically and confidently. The big three is in reference to Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green who were at the core of the Warriors' four championships together along with Kerr as Head coach.

Kerr added that it never crossed his mind, the fact that it might be the last time the big three are together. He even referenced his time as a player with the Bulls team in the last dance as "emotionally and mentally done." He added that he doesn't "feel that way" about the current Warriors stars and that they have "a lot to give for years to come." Whether that is true or not remains to be seen. 

The Warriors are currently down in their series against the Lakers 3-1. It will be a long climb back to win the series, and they'll definitely need their big three to step up and get the job done. So far, Curry has stepped up to the challenge and Thompson has shown glimpses of his old self. But it'll take a consistent effort from both Thompson and Green to get them over the hump.

The last time ironically that the Warriors were in a 3-1 series was in the 2016 NBA finals. They were up against the Cavaliers and looked to win their second in a row. However, the LeBron James led Cavaliers team stormed back to win the championship. Now, the Warriors will look to do the same against the James led Lakers team to keep their playoff hopes alive.
