Steph Curry arrived in Japan, and Japan welcomed him with open arms, cheers and screams. Naturally.

He was happy to be in the setting of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and discussed his excitement to represent Team USA's basketball squad next year. But what he said about the Warriors' future stood out the most.

"The story is still going," Curry told The Associated Press. "A lot of people said this is going to be the end, but I'm not going to let that happen. It's going to be fun to come back and chase more championships next year and beyond."

The Warriors suffered a huge loss -- well, two huge losses, with the injuries to Klay Thompson, who suffered a torn ACL, and Kevin Durantwho ruptured his Achilles. As far as next season is concerned, that leaves just Curry and Draymond Green as the lock-in All-Stars to start the season on Golden State's roster.

After the Finals Game 6 loss to the Raptors, the Warriors also will start a new chapter at a new location: Chase Center in San Francisco. They bid farewell to Oracle Arena after 47 years of calling it home.

Andre Iguodala also spoke of his confidence in the team during a recent interview on ESPN's "First Take." He remains hopeful that Thompson will be back in February, crediting him as "a fast healer." And he believes the Warriors will have another run at a championship.

"It's not over," Iguodala said.
