The Golden State Warriors franchise has been hugely successful over the past two seasons and has built the foundations for a lot of joy further down the line.

They won their first championship for 40 years in 2015 as they beat the Cleveland Cavaliers before making it back-to-back Western Conference titles this year by beating the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

After adding Kevin Durant to their team in free agency, creating a family feel in the franchise and starting on plans to build a new arena, things are looking really good for the franchise who occupied the lower reaches of the league for so many years.

However, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst on a recent episode of the Truehoop podcast, there is a sense around the league that the Warriors organisation believe they are better than the rest.

He said: "Within the NBA, there's a belief that the Warriors are a bit arrogant.

"I can't tell you how many times in the last four or five months, when I'm talking with other people in the league, whether it's agents or executives or whomever, coaches ... there's the reference, 'Well, they are light years ahead so they'll be fine'."

That reference comes from a previous interview in March where owner Joe Lacob sang the praises of his organisation by telling the New York Times they were 'light years ahead' of the competition. 

The Warriors have had some luck along the way, but they are a powerhouse that is here to stay.
