As defending NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors finished second to the Cleveland Cavaliers after making NBA history by setting the best ever regular season record of 73-9. The Warriors broke more than 25 NBA records and more than 10 franchise records last season. These achievements were the result of organization-wide teamwork, smart personnel decisions, innovation, risk-taking and an emphasis on character on all levels. At a recent KPCB CEO Workshop, KPCB general partner Ted Schlein interviewed Warriors owner and CEO Joe Lacob on how he built a winning culture using lessons learned from his business career and how creation of the “Strength in Numbers” franchise holds lessons for entrepreneurs.
