    Jason Terry refuses to give Warriors the 'super team' label

    The Warriors won 73 regular season games last year and added one of the best players in the NBA this offseason.

    But Jason Terry believes it's premature to give Golden State the "super team" label.

    "Because they have super individuals, doesn't make them a 'super team,'" Terry recently told Yardbarker. "To me, it's more about the accomplishment and what they're able to accomplish, and are they going to accomplish it?

    "It's yet to be seen so I refuse to give them that label right now."

    Terry was a member of the 2011 Mavericks, who beat the Heat's "super team" of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

    And the Warriors knocked his Rockets teams out of the playoffs each of the last two seasons.

    "They got super talent. You do have two MVPs," Terry said of the Warriors. "You look at the history of the NBA -- Lew Alcindor, Oscar Robertson; Kareem and Magic -- every team in the league back in the day had two or three superstars. But you weren't calling them 'super teams.'

    "I think it's more about the way they play, and for me, San Antonio is a 'super team'. They won five championships, but guys don't really look at that and say that's a 'super team.'"

    Terry did not specify his criteria for when the Warriors would become a 'super team' in his eyes.

    "They are starting to form a super team as we speak," he added, "but it's yet to be seen."
