Tony Parker Says Warriors Need More Rings To Be Called A Great Team
The Golden State Warriors are easily the heavy favorite to repeat as NBA Champions this year as they sit at 61-6 on the season and are in prime position to break the Chicago Bulls 72-10 record. Former players have criticized them heavily and the NBA and the way it’s played today, but you cannot deny that this team is ridiculously good.
One current player, point guard for the San Antonio Spurs Tony Parker believes calling this Warriors team the greatest team ever is extremely premature because of the lack of rings they have.
“I’ll say they’ve been having an unbelievable season,” Parker said. “Being in the league for 15 years, it’s tough to try to get 70 wins, with all the back to backs and all the great teams you have in the league. So it’s pretty impressive.”
“Compare them to the Bulls,” Parker continued. “They won six (titles) in eight years. So you have to give a little bit of time to that (Warriors) team to see how well they’re going to do over 10 years, the longevity. Like us, the Spurs, we won five titles since ’99. That’s how you judge teams.”
Only time will tell.
