When you're 37-4 and having one of the most memorable NBA seasons, well, ever, no one can blame you if you're feeling yourself a little bit. Providing the team you defeated in the NBA Finals with a little more bulletin board material, though, can be a dangerous proposition.
The Golden State Warriors head to Cleveland to take on the Cavs for the second time on Monday, the first time they've been to Northeast Ohio since winning the NBA championship there last June. When asked what emotions run through his head when he thinks about the return to the scene of so much jubilation, Stephen Curry told the Bay Area News Group this:
"Obviously, walking in the locker room, it'll be good memories," Curry said Sunday. "Hopefully, it still smells a little bit like champagne."
Something tells me that's not going to sit very well with the Cavs, who get to face the Warriors at home with a fully healthy roster (Kyrie Irving was on a minutes restriction when the two teams faced off on Christmas) for the first time since the 2014-2015 regular season. You're going to want to tune in for this one.
