The Latest: Kerr cracks that old-timers would kill Warriors

CLEVELAND (AP) The Latest on Game 4 of the NBA Finals (all times local):

4:45 p.m.

Steve Kerr hasn't talked to any of the old-timers who say their teams would have beaten his Golden State Warriors.

But he sarcastically responded to them Friday before Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, saying they were right and ''they would all kill us.''

With the Warriors unbeaten in the postseason and a victory away from a second title in three years, a number of former players have said their teams would have beaten them. Magic Johnson has said that his Lakers would probably have even done it in a sweep.

Kerr mockingly agreed, saying after the Warriors' shootaround that ''the game gets worse as time goes on'' and ''players are less talented than they used to be.''

He added: ''The guys in the `50s would have destroyed everybody.''
