Former NBA great, Rick Barry, joined the Sean Salisbury show and talked about the Rockets struggles against the Spurs in game five, and how the experience of the Spurs was critical in pulling out a victory. Barry also discussed the dominance of the Golden State Warriors and how teams have to count on several of the Warriors players having an off-night to have a chance at winning the game.

Mike Brown might be a positive for the Warriors

The loss of head coach Steve Kerr might be a good thing for the Warriors because their biggest weakness is their defense, and Mike Brown is a defensive minded coach. The Warriors are going to continue to put up points and they really just need to focus on the defensive end. Finally, Rick is hoping for a rematch of last year’s finals because he believes that the fans deserve to see such a great series again.
