After seeing his team lose two of their first three games, the Golden State Warriors are in an unfamiliar situation. With all the success they’ve had the past the three years, owning a losing record is something they are not used to. There are different factors that contributed to their slow start, but Steve Kerr is taking full responsibility for it.
The fourth year head coach blamed himself, as well as citing being unprepared and having lack of poise as the main reasons for his team’s 1-2 record so far.
Steve Kerr says Warriors have been totally unfocused and unprepared so far. And it's on him. Could be bad news tonight for Mavs.

Kerr: "We've been unprepared, frankly, which is my fault. A lack of poise has been a problem for three games."

While their defense is not looking as sharp as last season, Kerr’s statements goes to show what kind of a coach he is. Instead of putting the blame on his players, he is owning up to Dubs’ subpar performances. It could be seen as a good sign for the team though, as he knows how to resolve it, and take them back to their winning ways once again.
Kerr is fortunate as well that he has a very experienced group of players, as they have a deep understanding of what it takes to win it all in the NBA. With 79 games left on the schedule, a lot could still happen as the season progresses, and figuring out how to continue their successful run is something that will not be surprising to see for the Warriors to achieve.
