During the Golden State Warriors' game against the Phoenix Suns, Kerr was seen stepping aside during timeouts and letting his players run the huddle.

During one stoppage, Kerr gave the whiteboard to veteran swingman Andre Iguodala, who proceeded to discuss tactics with his fellow players on the bench.

David West, Draymond Green and Stephen Curry also took turns taking over the huddle.

After the game, Kerr explained that he allowed his players to coach because it's "the players' team, and they have to take ownership of it".

Watson started six of the seven games he played in as a rookie, completing almost 62 percent of his passes and throwing for 1,699 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions. I had not reached them for the last month.

The Golden State Warriors will look to keep their resurgence going Monday when they host the rebuilding Phoenix Suns. It's embarrassing to the opponent they were facing and it was repulsive for the Warriors to do it.

Before he coached the NBA's latest dynasty, Kerr was a sharpshooting guard at the University of Arizona, earning second- and third-team All-American honors as well as two First Team All-Pac-10 nominations during his time with the Wildcats.

Kerr added he didn't think the tactic was a big deal but that "it's the world we live in so everyone is going to debate it and whether it's a controversy or not it has to become one I guess".

The victory gave the Warriors two straight wins after their first two-game losing streak of the season. What better way to get players more involved than making them coach themselves? "But tonight they needed a new voice".

This is why Steve Kerr chose to do something drastic Monday, attempting to give his players some reason to care on a random night in February. days before the all-star break. against arguably the worst team in the National Basketball Association. It had to do with me trying to reach my team.' I have not reached them for the last month.

So Kerr decided that, for a night, the Warriors wouldn't hear his voice.

Green, 27, injured the finger during Saturday's 122-105 win over the Spurs, in which he played 35 minutes and tallied 17 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds.

The Suns, whose record is 18-40, were not missing their head coach, Jay Triano.

The trick worked. The Warriors ran away with the game and looked much like their old, dominant selves. "And I actually got a delay of game coming out of halftime, because I was scrambling".
