By Brian Tannenbaum, CNBC Staff Writer”There’s no denying the Warriors are a dominant team and the Spurs are an incredibly good team,” Wall Street analyst and NBA analyst, Chris Paul, told CNBC on Wednesday.
“There’s nothing that will make me change my mind.
The Spurs have a very deep core and they’ve been winning for a long time.
I have confidence in them.”
Paul made the comments while speaking to CNBC’s Brian Stelter.
Paul, who also has been a member of the Warriors for nearly seven seasons, has never shied away from discussing his thoughts on the Western Conference and how it compares to the Eastern Conference.
“I think they’re a really good team.
I think they have some great pieces,” Paul told Stelting.
“I think the Spurs have some good pieces.
I’m not saying that they’re the best team in the East, but I think there’s something to be said for being the best.
I like that, I think it’s something that’s hard to do.
They’re a very good team, they’re going to win a championship.
I don’t know that it will be easy, but they’ve got some great players that can make an impact.”
The Warriors and Spurs both finished the season tied for first in the West with a 10-5 record.
However, the Warriors lost their first game of the regular season in Houston on Tuesday, a game they lost by a final of 15 points.
