Steve Kerr pokes fun at front office with his latest comments about Kevin Durant

The Golden State Warriors have shot to the top of the NBA in recent years and their ascension has not pleased everyone.

In particular, one phrase that stuck in the throat of many NBA personalities was owner Joe Lacob's statement that the franchise were 'light years' ahead of the opposition.

When the Dubs fell in dramatic fashion to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals last season, the term was used as ammunition against the franchise due to their apparent smug nature after going 73-9 in the regular season.

When asked about Kevin Durant's progress since joining the Warriors, head coach Steve Kerr coined Lacob's old phrase as a sarcastic jab at both his bosses and the league as a whole.

Kerr, who won the NBA title in his rookie coaching season, said: "He's light years beyond where he was three weeks ago. Am I allowed to say light years?"


There have been some evident teething problems for Durant and his new teammates, but it seems they are gelling just at the right time.

Golden State kick off their campaign with a home encounter against the San Antonio Spurs - their biggest rivals in the Western Conference - and KD will want to get off to a strong start in front of his new fans.

If the Warriors hit top form then they are going to be difficult to live with on any night. With two MVPs and two other 2016 All-Stars, their starting five is no joke. It's going to be an entertaining watch this season for sure.
