The Golden State Warriors have had the best record in the NBA for the last three consecutive seasons, but they probably won’t be breaking their backs to make it a fourth this year. In a feature by Anthony Slater of The Athletic that was published on Tuesday, Warriors forwards Draymond Green and Kevin Durant said that the team does not care about being at the top of the regular season standings again. “I don’t even look at the standings,” the reigning Defensive Player of the Year Green was quoted as saying. “We haven’t even talked about it.” “Best record? That’s not even a thing,” added the defending NBA Finals MVP Durant. “It’s about playing good basketball every night. If we don’t play good basketball, we’ll lose.” It’s a position that makes perfect sense — the Warriors are gunning for their fourth straight Finals appearance and their second straight title, devaluing the importance of the regular season.
