Alvin Gentry to Anthony Davis: ‘We’re coming right back here!’ (Video)
The Golden State Warriors are your 2014-15 NBA champions and assistant coach Alvin Gentry was the mastermind behind their historic, transcendent offense that proved once and for all that a jump-shooting team could in fact win an NBA championship.
While celebrating the Warriors’ championship-clinching 105-97 Game 6 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night in the champagne-soaked visitor’s locker room at Quicken Loans Arena, Gentry, who had accepted the head coaching position of the New Orleans Pelicans before the Finals began, had a message for his new superstar, Anthony Davis.

Though head coach Steve Kerr understandably wasn’t having any of it, Gentry’s 2015 reincarnation of Pat Riley’s famous “Next year, we’re gonna win it again” proclamation back in 1987 still made for a pretty awesome moment.
While Gentry will have his work cut out for him to deliver on that bold declaration next year, the idea of Anthony “Basketball Sharktopus” Davis teaming up with the man who produced one of the most revolutionary offenses in NBA history and took it to the championship is downright terrifying.
