Steve Kerr Compares Warriors to Patriots, Says It's Boring to See Same Team Win: 'That Was Really Arrogant, Wasn't It?'

As the man behind one of the most powerful dynasties in modern NBA history, Steve Kerr knows everything about dominating a league.

He also knows that a franchise's sustained period of success can be frustrating for its rivals and lead to accusations of making the league boring.

That, however, did not stop the Golden State Warriors head coach from making a tongue-in-cheek remark regarding the New England Patriots.

"It just gets old watching the same team win the whole thing," Kerr said after practice on Monday, as per Anthony Slate of The Athletic.

Steve Kerr asked about the Super Bowl: "It just gets old watching the same team win the whole thing...Sorry, that was really arrogant, wasn't it? It was kind of fun to say that."

The irony of the comment was not lost on the Warriors head coach, who quickly added: "That was really arrogant wasn't it? It was kind of fun to say that."

On Sunday, the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Atlanta to clinch Super Bowl LIII and draw level with the Pittsburgh Steelers as the only franchise in NFL history to win six Super Bowl titles.

While the Steelers won their titles over a 35-year span, all of the Patriots' six triumphs have come in the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era.

Since the duo joined forces in 2000, the Patriots have appeared in nine Super Bowls, more than any other NFL franchise has ever done in history.

The Warriors' achievements under Kerr do not go as far back in time but their impact on the NBA has been almost as dominant.

Golden State has reached the NBA Finals in each of the last four years, winning on three occasions and only losing in seven games to a LeBron James-inspired Cleveland Cavaliers after surrendering a 3-1 lead.

In the same year, the Warriors set a new NBA record for regular season wins, finishing with an incredible 73-9 record.

The Warriors have the second-best record in the league this season and are favorites to become the first team since the 2000-2002 Lakers to win three titles in a row.

Kerr, however, warned his team against becoming complacent.

"I told our team today to look at the Patriots—they just never make a mistake," he added.

"So on a game when they don't have it clicking offensively, they can still win because they're just on point, they're buttoned up, they're just rock solid week after week after week.

"That's the point we want to get to."

The Warriors improved to 37-15 with a 115-101 home win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday and conclude a three-game home stand with a clash against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night.
