Sure, Steph is having possibly the best season ever enjoyed by a professional basketball and may well one day be regarded as among the best to ever play the game. But if you think he’s the reason the Golden State Warriors are on track to have the best season in NBA history, then you haven’t crunched the numbers. You see, Warriors owner Joe Lacob learned how to build successful teams in Silicon Valley. And sure, he inherited Curry when he bought Warriors back in 2010. But as far as he’s concerned, all credit belongs in his front office.

Lacob won’t accept that what the Warriors have achieved is a product of anything but a master plan. “The great, great venture capitalists who built company after company, that’s not an accident,” he said. “And none of this is an accident, either….”

“We’re light-years ahead of probably every other team in structure, in planning, in how we’re going to go about things,” he said. “We’re going to be a handful for the rest of the N.B.A. to deal with for a long time.”
