Richard Jefferson opened up about what we are expecting to see from the Golden State Warriors in the 2020/21 season.
The former NBA champion and current ESPN analyst believes the Warriors will not get a ‘revenge tour’ next season.
“They are the best backcourt and they are going to be the best backcourt until they probably retire at this point. But this is the issue about next season — the Revenge Tour, quote-unquote. Steph hasn’t played very much basketball in the last year. Klay has missed an entire season of basketball. You have to condition yourself — I don’t care — they aren’t even going to the minicamps.
I know these guys are going to be in shape, I know these guys are going to be tough — I’m not saying that. But there is something about being 30 years old and missing an entire season of basketball.
So I don’t think next season will be their quote-unquote. It will be the next season when they have their legs back under them, they kind of in more of a rhythm. That’s when I think they can really start taking names and kicking butts,” Jefferson said during his appearance on ESPN’s “The Jump”.
The Warriors are expected to be a title contender next season.
