Steve Kerr Responds to Critics After Letting Players Coach vs. Suns


While Kerr said his decision to allow players to coach the team was meant with no disrespect, Suns foward Jared Dudley still took offense by the move.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have been in solid form as they've won nine of their last 13 games and they will be gunning for a third straight win after blowing out the Spurs in a 122-105 home win on Saturday.

The Golden State Warriors are 44-13 and one game up on the Houston Rockets out west.

"I haven't been able to reach them the last month", Kerr said. I'm exhausted of my voice.

The Warriors have been the NBA's best team for the past few years.

After the game, Kerr told reporters that he made a decision to let guys some of his players because "it's the players' team".

"As coaches, our job is to nudge them in the right direction and guide them". I thought about a play and then I forgot the second option and had two guys in the wrong place on the board.

So bad is interim head coach Jay Triano's squad, they needed a garbage-time (albeit beautiful) alley-oop to avoid a 50-point loss last week. "I have not reached them for the last month".

This year, though? The Warriors haven't had that thing to keep them locked in on a nightly basis, to give them something to play for during these dog days of the season.

Draymond Green (sprained left index finger) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Portland.

Two weeks ago it looked like the Warriors were going to limp into All-Star weekend, and possibly give up the number one seed in the Western Conference as a result.

Part of his success: Dragiev learned early on to predict the outcome of the game before determining how success trickles down to individual players, so he spent more time studying team outcomes than projecting individual players.

"I think (Payton) is definitely a tryout, I don't think he's a rental", ESPN NBA analyst Amin Elhassan said on 98.7 FM Arizona Sports Station's Bickley and Marotta Monday.

"I thought the players responded really well".

I read that quote and started thinking about the role of coaches in the National Basketball Association.
