Steve Kerr acknowledges Warriors had more talent than Cavs
The NBA Finals proved to be a mismatch between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, which is something most fans recognized entering the series. After his Warriors swept the Cavs in the NBA Finals, head coach Steve Kerr acknowledged that he had the more talented team. In fact, Kerr said he was surprised the Cavs had even reached the Finals.
Steve Kerr praises Ty Lue, LeBron, for how they powered this Cavs team: "The fact that they got here surprised me, frankly. Watching them, it didn't seem like they would have enough."
Adds: "We had more talent than they did, and talent wins in this league."

He’s right. The Cavaliers were on the ropes against the Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics. It took some outstanding performances by LeBron James for them to even make the Finals. And once they got there, the difference in the teams was stark.
Credit to Kerr for recognizing and acknowledging that, though he’s probably not about to apologize for it — nor should he.
