The Golden State Warriors are preparing to take their crown back from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Forget about all of the records and personal achievements, the only aim the Dubs have this season is exacting revenge of the Cavs following their heartbreaking finals defeat.
They let a 3-1 lead slip. The first franchise in history to do it in the biggest series of them all. And two-time MVP Stephen Curry recently said he still isn't over that final game at the Oracle Arena.
However, the time for licking wounds is over. Golden State acquired Kevin Durant and have a hugely talented roster at their disposal. As for game seven, Curry is planning to keep it in his mind for some time.
"I still haven’t gotten over Game 7," Curry told USA TODAY Sports. "That’s something that will stay with me pretty much forever, for good and bad reasons. Obviously you hated the feeling, but it’s also a motivator to come back even stronger and try not to have that feeling again.
"I’m at that point now where I can try to fuel any kind of terrible nightmares or thoughts about Game 7 into motivation for how I’m going to prepare myself for this year."
