Steve Kerr is unhappy with where Golden State currently is
Following another disappointing loss on Saturday night, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has admitted that he is currently unhappy with the current stature of his team.
“We are a young team that is learning, but I’m not happy with where we are,” Kerr said, via ESPN. “We should not just accept our fate. We shouldn’t feel sorry for ourselves and say well we have all these injuries and you know we are playing two-way guys or whatever and going for the lottery and all this crap. We should win some games”
After falling to the Oklahoma City Thunder, 114-108, the hapless Warriors have now lost their eighth contest out of 10 games played in the new season. As Kerr explained above, he is unwilling to accept a defeatist attitude. The three-time NBA champion coach acknowledged how extremely unlucky the Dubs have been of late when it comes to injuries, but also conceded that he does not want to use the same as an excuse to be a terrible team.
Unfortunately for Kerr and his side, though, they are indeed quite a terrible group at the moment. Golden State has only won one game in the entire month of November, and currently hold the absolute worst record in the league at 2-8. Even the New York Knicks (2-7) have a better record that them.
No one expects the Warriors to be competitive this season, especially after losing superstar point guard Stephen Curry to a fractured hand. However, as Kerr implied above, he expects his team to be much better than they have been over the past few weeks. Surely, the veteran coach will have his work cut out for him the rest of the way.
