And the Warriors relied on an athletic center JaVale McGee as its trump card to spark both more offensive energy and defensive intensity. Seriously, what was left to accomplish, other than to stay healthy? "Same as Kevin. Myself". I said, 'Great.' He goes and does his stuff, and we continue to prepare.

But at the same time, we've got to be smarter. We understand we're not favorites. We've won games without myself.
