Why did Steve Kerr let his players coach against the Suns?

Steve Kerr

Green's resume simply speaks for itself, as he was named the 2017 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, is a three-time NBA All-Defensive First-Team member, and has been selected to the All-Star Game for three years in a row.

Steve Kerr decided his Golden State Warriors didn't need his coaching against the Phoenix Suns.

Kerr let Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green and David West take cracks at leading the huddle starting in the middle of the first quarter. Of course, 39 of those victories were actually Luke Walton's, when he served as interim coach of the Warriors two years ago when Kerr had back trouble. Green did not play Monday vs. Phoenix due to the finger injury.

"It's the players' team", Kerr said after the game, "and they have to take ownership of it". As coaches, our job is to nudge them in the right direction, guide them, but we don't control them. I just feel like when we are focused, we we are really tough to beat and tonight we were focused.

Immediately after the game, Kerr met with Suns coach Jay Triano on the court.

"I've hardly played him, to no fault of his own", Kerr said. Although, it turns out the defending National Basketball Association champs didn't need to strategize much after they raced to a 17-point halftime lead.

"I was terrible, actually", he said. They're exhausted of my voice. Given how successful the Warriors were on Monday, who knows, maybe he'll give the players additional opportunities to play the role of a coach moving forward.

"I don't think it's hard to coach those guys, though", Daniels told reporters (per azcentral.com). Since their three-trade Thursday, the Cavs have beaten the Hawks, crushed the Celtics and edged a Thunder team that in late January bludgeoned them in a historic blowout.

"I was trying to be aggressive on the inbounds", LaVine said. Veteran Suns big man Jared Dudley believes that it was disrespectful towards his team. He had a team-high 25 points in the 122-105 win. Casspi drew the start for he injured Green and look infinitely more comfortable than he has been recently.

"I'm always thinking situations and what I would do or what play I would call", said Lillard, the Blazers' team captain. "I noticed their plays were a little better out of timeout tonight", He told ESPN jokingly. "So I'm doing what I have to do to make sure my body is mentally in a good space".
