Just over a month ago, the Warriors defeated the Celtics to be crowned NBA champions for the seventh time in their history. Despite the fact that Golden State only needed six games to be crowned, in Boston they believe that the San Francisco organization did not deserve the title.
In an interview for the podcast “The Long Shot”, by Heat member Duncan Robinson and Davis Reid, Grant Williams assured that the Celtics were the best team that played in the NBA Finals.
“When I reflect and think back on those games, I still say with confidence that the Warriors were not the best team,” he said.

Likewise, Williams added that the factor that led the Warriors to the title was discipline. While Boston averaged 16.8 turnovers per game, Golden State only had 13.8 per game.
“I would say they were the most disciplined team. Definitely. When you see the videos, we were leading on both ends of the floor or with the chances,” he explained. “We had streaks and the next thing we knew we were turning the ball over three times because we missed three shots.
“Instead of getting the reads right, because we were missing shots, we were starting to force things,” he added. “The discipline of making the right play over and over again, we didn’t play like that, while they played the same no matter what.”
