Add in the fact that the Warriors were able to take care of the contracts of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Javale McGee, and the team should hit the ground running when training camp begins Monday.

So how does he feel now, with the new season just around the corner? "As Vin Scully once said, 'We're all day-to-day'".

After winning their second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons, head coach Steve Kerr expects the Golden State Warriors to improve in 2017-18. The surgeries caused him to miss the first 43 games of the 2015-16 season.

But Kerr missed 11 of those playoff games with back issues. He admits he's still not 100 percent.

"It's been a long odyssey".

If it makes Kerr feel any better, the Warriors enter the season as the overwhelming favorites to repeat as National Basketball Association champions, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks.

Kerr missed a good portion of Golden State's playoff run dealing with painful symptoms that kept him from being with his team. But the challenge is obvious.

The Warriors have reached the NBA Finals in three consecutive seasons, and they are 57-100 or minus-175 favorites (bet $175 to win $100) to repeat as champions in 2017-18, according to OddsShark. Very few teams in the history of the league have done that, and there's a reason.
