When asked for his thoughts on the New England Patriots winning another Super Bowl, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr joked that it “gets old” watching the same team win it all every year.
“It just gets old watching the same team win the whole thing,” Kerr told reporters on Monday. “Sorry, that was really arrogant, wasn’t it? It was kind of fun to say that.”
The coach said he told his team that there are lessons to be learned from how the Patriots have been able to sustain success.
“I told our team today to look at the Patriots, they just never make a mistake,” he said. “So on a game when they don’t have it clicking offensively, they can still win because they’re just on point, they’re buttoned up, they’re just rock solid week after week after week. That’s the point we want to get to.”
The Patriots have appeared in nine of the last 18 Super Bowls and won six of them. Tom Brady now has more Super Bowl rings than any player in NFL history.
The Warriors have made four-straight NBA Finals appearances, and if they win it all again this year, they will become the first team to three-peat since the 2000-2002 Lakers.
