Warriors’ Lacob Credits Leaders Curry, Lee
Still, (Warriors co-owners Joe) Lacob credited coach Mark Jackson for giving the team structure, general manager Bob Myers’ front office for building the depth, and the entire roster for adapting a blue-collar sensibility.
Lacob especially pointed to the leadership qualities of Stephen Curry and David Lee, two of his favorite players showing why they’re his favorites this season.
One giant measure of Lacob’s satisfaction: In every other conversation we’ve had, Lacob always stressed the need to make big moves to upgrade the talent; on Tuesday, he backed away from the hyper-aggression.
“We’re pretty good right now,” Lacob said. “Even though I would agree that we’re not a team that has a superstar, we have a team with some really good players.
“We have a deep team, which is what we built this year, that was what we had the ability to do. A lot of youth mixed with veterans. The right coaching staff.”
