Despite the success, the Warriors’ three titles aren’t enough. “Boston was very important and those guys were very helpful. They are friends to this day – not too close friends, though,” Lacob said. “I want to kill them now, I’ll be honest. I’m very competitive about it and I’m sure they are too. It’s going to be a battle on the ground and a bit of an ownership battle too. We want to kill each other and we want to win, both teams. And they should.

More on this scenario

From inside the Chase Center to outside of Thrive City, Lacob’s vision is coming true with the Warriors back to their winning ways. “Personally, I’m just as proud of Chase Center — personally, now — as I am with this team,” Lacob said. “I can’t even tell you how hard it was to do. It took seven years, and in this city it’s probably harder than in any other city to do it. And as you know, it was all swept away, it was private money. Which, to be honest with you, I’m proud of. We haven’t had to take money away from the police, fire department and so many social services. I think we’re all proud of that. —via NBC Sports/May 31, 2022

Lacob gives Boston the upper hand in the Celtics-Lakers rivalry, while also adding his own Warriors history. “I’m going to give you a stat that I think is the most incredible stat,” Lacob says. “The Celtics are great. Jerry Buss owned the Lakers for 33 years. Does anyone know how many finals he made in 33 years? Sixteen out of 33. It’s amazing. We have now done six in 12 years. So, I love the 50% rate. If we will continue this, I don’t know. But I’m sure I’ll try. —via NBC Sports / May 30, 2022

Every night I get chills when I enter the arena. I literally have chills. I like. I love basketball, I’ve loved it all my life. —via NBC Sports / May 30, 2022
