Golden State’s Stephen Curry isn’t superstition when it comes to discussing more championships.
In fact, the entire Warriors’ squad welcomes talk of a possible three-peat, because for the reigning NBA champions, it’s an attainable goal.
“We talk about the three-peat just because it’s in front of us,” Curry said, via ESPN. “I don’t think that’s something that’s repeated every single day. But when we start the season, obviously we lay everything out on the table, what’s at stake in terms of our expectations.”
The Warriors have a tough task on their hands if they want to become the first team since the 2000-02 Lakers to win three consecutive titles.
While Golden State has made it to four straight NBA Finals, winning three of the past four championships, it will now have tougher competition within its own conference, including a Los Angeles team featuring LeBron James.
“Yes, winning a championship is the goal,” Curry added. “How you get there and how you kind of break up that mission on a day-to-day, game-by-game, month-by-month basis is what makes us, I think, great.
“In terms of the overall goal, it just depends on the day in terms of how we communicate it. But yeah, we understand that winning a championship is attainable if we take care of our business, and doing it three years in a row is a tremendous opportunity for us that we should not be afraid to talk about and go after.”
The Warriors will begin their 2018-19 campaign against the Thunder on Oct. 16.
