Steve Kerr is not worried about Rockets edge, his guys 'have rings'

James Harden and Chris Paul haven't won a title — in fact, there's only one Finals appearance between them. The Warriors, winners in two of the last three NBA Finals, are trying to build on a dynasty.

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr isn't buying the narrative is that the Houston Rockets have an edge in being the supposedly hungrier squad, especially after their acknowledged obsession with beating the Warriors. 

 

Of course, James Harden and Chris Paul haven't won a title - in fact, there's only one Finals appearance between them. The Warriors, winners in two of the last three NBA Finals, are trying to build on a dynasty.

I like where we are. Our guys have rings. That's a good position to be in. To me, the hardest championship is the first one, as an individual player and as a team, because you don't know -- you don't quite know -- if you can do it.

"Once you get the first one, there's a little bit of house money," Kerr told reporters. "But you want it again because it's an unbelievable feeling. I like our position. We're going to go in here knowing we're the defending champs, knowing we got a couple of championships here the last few years. Let's go get another one. It's a nice feeling to have and to go into a series with."
