Warriors fans are spoiled right now.
It's been an incredible four-year run and Golden State is the favorite to win the championship again.
But last season was a serious grind and much more difficult than the prior three.
The Warriors dealt with injuries and mental/physical fatigue, as players and coaches alike openly discussed how challenging it was to get through the regular season.
There will definitely be some bumps and rocky moments along the way, but the team is approaching this campaign with a new perspective.
"We're gonna have a different dynamic this year," Steve Kerr said at Media Day on Monday. "We gotta take advantage of the youth, the energy. And some of our other players are gonna have to step up into stronger leadership roles.
"That's kind of the fun part of each year being different -- you get to see how it all blossoms. And I think our fans will enjoy that process, too. When you think about the whole regular season, a lot of people start saying, 'Well, can't wait for the playoffs.'
"I think this year will be fun for our fans to see the development of the young guys -- Damian (Jones) and Loon (Kevon Looney) and Jacob Evans and Jordan Bell. Hopefully Patrick (McCaw). So you watch these guys develop and then you get to see DeMarcus Cousins once he's healthy. How does he fit into the team and how does the team grow as a whole?
"Hopefully by the end of the season, we'll be clicking and ready to role in the playoffs."
So in a nutshell, Kerr wants Warriors fans to enjoy the process (trust it as well) and cherish the final regualar season at Oracle Arena.
The playoffs will be here soon enough...
