Steph Curry Says ’74 Isn’t Really A Goal’ For The Warriors

The goal for the 2016-17 Golden State Warriors, most likely, is to not blow a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. That almost definitely takes precedence over winning a record 74 regular-season games in 2016-17, but Steph Curry let that be known during his tour of Asia.

Via NBA.com:

“We’ve added some great character guys that will fit right in to our identity and who we are as a team. There’s only one goal this year, and that’s obviously to win a championship, so whatever it takes to make that happen, I’m sure we’ll figure it out. Seventy-four (wins) isn’t really a goal. If it happens, it happens.”

Poor Steph. He’s over in Hong Kong, acting as an ambassador for basketball, and he has to be reminded of how little 73 regular-season wins meant. He has to talk about how he was injured during the NBA Finals, when the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers, and get into how he’s going to play with Kevin Durant. Every question is essentially, “Remember that time you blew a 3-1 lead in the Finals?”

“All we care about is a championship,” is just a platitude, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Warriors throttle it down a bit in the regular season, because really, expending all that energy to win 73 couldn’t have helped in June.
