Back on top of the world, the Warriors are the delight of their owner, Joe Lacob. Delighted to have won four titles over the last eight seasons, the Dubs boss is dreaming big for the future.
If you are looking for a happy man in the NBA, we recommend the direction of San Francisco. Between the Warriors championship title and exploding franchise revenues, Joe Lacob is on cloud nine. With the Big 3 Curry – Thompson – Green which still has good years ahead of it, the explosion of Andrew Wiggins, a youth who has the fangs behind (Jordan Poole, Kevon Looney, James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga, Moses Moody), the future looks golden for Golden State. Enough to give Joe Lacob even more ambition for the rest of the operations. Podcast guest Point Forward, co-hosted by Andre Iguodala and Evan Turner, the owner of the Warriors is delighted with the accomplishments of his team but he does not intend to stop there. A single watchword for the future: win, again and again.

“I only think about one thing for the rest of my life and that is winning titles… I’m a maniac, that’s the only thing that matters to me. That’s all ! We did really well. We have won four in eight years, which is incredible. We’ve done six Finals in 12 years, which, by the way, was done by another owner, Jerry Buss. I admire him. 33 years of ownership, 16 finals. This 50% rate, I don’t know if we can continue like this, but I’m sure I’ll try. That’s my goal, to make this team strong. »
At the head of the Warriors since 2010, the big boss of the Chase Center therefore sets a particularly high objective by taking Jerry Buss, legendary owner of the Los Angeles Lakers who died in 2013, as a model. will have to rely on a Warriors dynasty that lasts a long time and also that the successors can do just as well, which is still quite a challenge given the cast already present. Buss’ Lakers were able to shine because several generations lived up to expectations, from Jabbar, Magic and Worthy to Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, obviously passing through Shaquille O’Neal. To do as well as Buss and the Angelinos, the Warriors will therefore have to find a way to renew themselves effectively to keep this ambition intact.. And given the finances of the franchise, Joe Lacob will no doubt be happy to lend a hand to guarantee his people the best chance. See you in a few years to compare the trophy shelves.
The owner of the Warriors is hungry for titles and since the appetite comes with eating, he could see himself equaling the accomplishments of Jerry Buss at the Lakers. We know one who got used to ski goggles and champagne.
