While the dynastic trio of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green has remained the same over the years, each version of the Warriors is unique year in and year out.

And this season’s team may have learned that the hard way.

Speaking to reporters after Golden State’s 120-105 win over the Toronto Raptors on Friday at Scotiabank Arena, Warriors coach Steve Kerr discussed his team’s current success and how an early-season identity crisis could come into play have played on a rollercoaster in the first half before. the team settled down as it led to eight wins in its last ten games and eight in a row.

“I’ve liked this team all year. We had some issues early on, but it was really more about things just coming together,” Kerr said. “The chemistry was great from the start of camp. The guys are all committed to each other, they care about each other, they care about winning and we’ve gotten healthy and found a good groove.

“It honestly took us a while to figure out our team. We leaned on what we were two years ago when we won the championship early in the season, and that didn’t work. And I gave that a good, We took a long look and We ended up turning things around, between that and getting Draymond [Green] back and our young guys are really making a leap forward and guys are loving it [Kevon Looney] and Moses [Mody] who are so professional, persevere through difficult times and set a great tone for the rest of the group.”

While the 2023-24 Warriors aren’t the same team they were two years ago, that doesn’t mean they still don’t possess the championship DNA that led them to four titles in eight years, with veterans like Curry, Thompson and Green. I still believe this year’s team has what it takes to lift another Larry O’Brien Trophy.

The Warriors are coming on fire at the right time and have their sights set on a top-six finish in the Western Conference playoffs.

“We’ve got some good momentum going and we’re going to try to keep that going,” Kerr added.

Speaking of the 2021-2022 championship team, Golden State’s road trip continues with a big game against the Boston Celtics on Sunday at TD Garden, where the Warriors dynasty won its fourth championship nearly two years ago.
