    导出博客文章The Golden State Warriors started last season with a record 24 consecutive
    victories on their way to a historic 73-win campaign. But expect a little more
    trial and error and a little less intensity this time around, Warriors coach
    Steve Kerr said.I dont think well have that this year, Kerr said. Weve kind of
    been through that. Wed rather win a championship than set a record, thats for
    sure.Last year we felt like we could do both -- and we were pretty close -- but
    we couldnt pull it off. This years more about just growing and getting better
    and experimenting the first couple months of the season.This approach is also
    framed by Kerrs experience as a player on the Chicago Bulls teams that won three
    consecutive championships from 1996 to 1998.When most fans think of the end of
    that run, they immediately summon the lasting image of Michael Jordan hitting
    the winning shot over Bryon Russell in the 1998 NBA Finals. Kerr remembers the
    difficult buildup, with Scottie Pippen fighting through a back injury, the Bulls
    falling behind by double-digits and facing the prospect of a Game 7 on the road
    to finish their long journey.We were running on fumes, Kerr said. I think the
    toll was over several years. Thats one of the reasons I think this year were
    going to pace ourselves somewhat ... but were also better off having the new
    blood and the new life, because I think it will give us that boost.It doesnt
    guarantee that were going to be better, but it changes the dynamics a little
    bit. I think itll make things a little fresher, and make it maybe a little
    easier for us to get through the regular season and get through the grind.The
    Bulls teams from 1996 to 1998 had 10 players along for all three seasons; the
    Warriors have only six players who were on the roster for the past two trips to
    the Finals, five who logged significant minutes, creating a balancing act for
    Kerr.While the new players like Kevin Durant bring fresh perspective, it will
    also require Kerr to make greater use of the new and old players to develop
    chemistry.Last year, the key players might have played a couple more games than
    normal because the team wanted to set the new regular-season record of 73
    victories, although Kerr said it wasnt physical fatigue that cost the
    Warriors.The toll was more emotional than anything, Kerr said Friday, ahead of
    the Warriors preseason game against the Denver Nuggets. Over time, that stuff
    adds up. Thats why LeBron [James] going to the Finals six straight years is, to
    me, one of the great accomplishments of all time. Like, how many guys have done
    that? Maybe Bill Russell was the last guy. I know Michael didnt do it because he
    took a couple of years off. Larry Bird, Magic [Johnson] never did it. ... Six is
    incredible.All of that extra basketball is one reason James has come to value
    time off during the regular season; he hasnt played more than 77 games in any of
    the past four years. Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson all played
    more than that last season.Kerr is also mindful of the need to keep his star
    players on the court to satisfy the paying customers -- especially with the
    amplified interest in this team from the addition of Durant. Kerr even plans to
    play his starters on both nights of preseason back-to-back games this weekend,
    against the Nuggets in Denver and the Los Angeles Lakers in Las Vegas.Its a
    tricky issue on this team because people come out to see these guys play, Kerr
    said. I am sensitive to that. Not at the expense of our teams health, but if
    guys are healthy, at the very minimum I want to throw them out there -- for a
    few minutes, anyway -- so fans get to see them play. But health always comes
    first. Shawn

    The CEO of next years Rugby League World Cup has surprisingly resigned amid
    reports he had fallen out with Penrith CEO Corey Payne over the tournaments NSW
    snub.Michael Brown stepped down on Friday as 2017 Rugby League World Cup boss
    and also resigned as NRL chief commercial officer, blaming stress.Brown - who
    was appointed in June - made the shock call just three days after he unveiled
    the tournament draw in Brisbane.The task of taking on two such senior roles -
    especially away from my home town of Melbourne - has been particularly
    stressful, he said in a statement.However, Brown reportedly quit after a stoush
    with Payne over the tournaments schedule.News Corp Australia reports Brown left
    a scathing text message on Paynes phone following the scheduling criticism from
    the Panthers CEO.NSW host just two of the tournaments 28 games - two of minnows
    Lebanons pool matches at Sydneys ANZ Stadium.Brown said at the tournament draw
    launch that the NSW government failed to come to the party financially and so
    the state was largely overlooked in the schedule.Even AFL-mad Darwin will host a
    quarter-final after NSW government disinterest.But Payne slammed organisers over
    the World Cup draw in an open letter to Panthers members on Tuesday night on the
    NRL clubs website.ddddddddddddHe said it was mind boggling that organisers did
    not allocate a World Cup game in western Sydney.I am extremely disappointed that
    we have been snubbed by the NRL for commercial reasons, he wrote.It is a real
    shame that the NRL cannot see the opportunity out here in the west.If they
    cannot make World Cup games commercially viable in western Sydney, then I must
    be living on the moon - western Sydney deserves better.NRL CEO Todd Greenberg
    and World Cup chairman George Peponis said they understood Browns position and
    accepted his resignation.RLWC chief operating officer Maria Sykes will be
    interim CEO.The NRLs head of commercial Andrew Abdo will report directly to
    Greenberg.The World Cup preparations are well advanced and I am very confident
    the foundations are in place for a successful tournament, Brown said.The NRL has
    also put together a strong commercial team to take the game forward so this is
    an appropriate time to step aside.
