During the Warriors 111-98 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Monday night, head coach Steve Kerr, who is known not to be gun-shy of showing his feelings towards officials, gave them a piece of his mind in the second quarter trailing 49-36.
Down 13 points prior to halftime, Kerr who thought his team was on the low end of calls, wanted to voice his frustration towards the officials.
Kerr who received his first technical foul from one official, up’d the ante’ and was sent to the showers moments later after screaming at the referee,
“WAKE YOUR A** UP, WAKE THE F*CK UP”
It’s been a struggle for the Warriors all season long, sitting at the bottom of the Western conference standings at just 9-29, and have lost 5 straight games.
It doesn’t get any easier for the Warriors, in fact their next 3 games include matchups with the Clippers, Bucks, and Grizzlies.
Yes the Warriors are missing several key all-stars in their lineup which include Draymond Green, Steph Curry, and Klay Thompson, but at the end of the day, Steve Kerr received so much attention for being able to handle 3 all stars personalities, coping them together to bring home several NBA titles.
Nevertheless, fans and spectators have the right to question how well can Steve Kerr coach without having all of the all-star talent around. Is it his fault that 3 all-stars are hurt. No. Does he still have to lead this group of men? Yes. How many other coaches are fortunate enough to land in a coaching spot that includes arguably the best shooting backcourt in NBA history? This doesn’t even mention the fact that he just lost Kevin Durant this past offseason.
Kerr literally had 4 all-stars in a lineup and some media pundits wanted to engrave his name on Coach of the Year. Who couldn’t coach 4 all-stars (near their prime) to the NBA finals at the minimum?
This season is showing you that with or without all-stars not all of these coaches are beneficial enough to land a coaching gig that has this legendary roster.
It’s a legit question, can Steve Kerr coach without having 4 all-stars on it’s roster?
