The Warriors recently became the first team in NBA history to begin a season 17 - 0. I LOVE that this team has a defined set of meaningful core values that guide them: 

Joy. Mindfulness. Compassion. Competition.

“He [coach Steve Kerr] just reminded everybody, he put them up on the white board before we started shoot-around and he reminded the guys what those values were,” interim coach Luke Walton said. “He emphasized to them how proud he was watching them, because we’re hitting all four of those values. The first one and the most important one is probably joy. He wants us having fun. It’s a long season, this game’s meant to be fun.

“When we hit those four things we’re not only very tough to beat, but we’re very fun to watch, we’re very fun to coach, we’re very fun to be around, and he just told the guys how happy he was that they’re continuing to do those things.”
