Steve Kerr jabs former NBA players saying their teams would beat the Warriors: 'The guys in the '50s would have destroyed everybody'

There’s been no shortage of former NBA players speaking up to their say their former teams would beat the Golden State Warriors.

This should hardly be surprising — naturally competitive people, who reached the pinnacle of their careers, of course think that their teams and eras were the best.

When asked about the comments on Friday, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr had a great response, taking a shot back at the legions of players who think they were the best.

“They’re all right,” Kerr said. “They would¬†all kill us. The game gets worse as time goes on. Players are less talented than they used to be. The guys in the ’50s would have destroyed everybody. It’s weird how human evolution goes reverse in sports. Players get weaker, smaller, less skilled. I don’t know. I can’t explain it.”

There’s no way of knowing how the “Showtime” Lakers or ’90s Bulls would stack up against the Warriors, and we’ll never find out. But Kerr hit back in the appropriate manner, while also not backing down that his historically great team might have a good shot at beating all of them.
