Steve Kerr on the recent criticism amid Warriors’ struggles
Steve Kerr is not one to mince words. This is exactly why he’s been quite self-critical of late amid the struggles of his Golden State Warriors.
Kerr provided an honest assessment of his own performance this season:
“When we were doing great, I was an offensive genius,” Kerr said on a recent interview on 95.7 The Game. “Now we’re struggling and I’m behind the times. The truth is always somewhere in the between.”
Aside from conceding that he is by no means the greatest coach of all time, Kerr also takes a bit of a shot at the media here. The three-time NBA champion coach has been one of the biggest scapegoats for the Dubs this season, with his coaching style often criticized for its alleged inability to adapt to today’s game.
Kerr has definitely taken notice of all the noise and he appears to be willing to take on the criticism. Needless to say, however, the best way for him to drown out the criticism would be for the Warriors to start winning again.
It’s been an up-and-down season for the Dubs, who currently sit three games outside the playoffs picture in the West (as of Thursday afternoon). They did pull off a huge win on Tuesday, though, defeating the mighty Milwaukee Bucks, 122-121. Giannis Antetokounmpo did sit that one out, but for the Warriors, a win is still a win.
Golden State gets the Washington Wizards and the Houston Rockets on Thursday and Friday, and those are a couple of winnable games for them, especially with Stephen Curry now back in the mix.
