Steve Kerr sends stern message to Warriors after dropping to 2-8
Fans who watched the season unfold knew the Golden State Warriors were going to have an interesting season, to say the least. However, no one expected that they would be struck by misfortune this hard after enjoying five years of sheer dominance.
Now, it seems Steve Kerr finally had enough as they fall to 2-8 after their loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
A disgruntled Steve Kerr talked to the press after the game and gave a clear message to his team after ending their short road trip without getting a single win. They need to perform better if they’re going to finish the season with a good record, and put simply, they need to compete and win games.
Steve Kerr on the 2-8 Warriors: “We should not just accept our fate. We shouldn’t feel sorry for ourselves and say, well, we have all these injuries or we’re playing two-way guys and going for the lottery and all this crap. No. We should win some games.” pic.twitter.com/ZvCg9zcI5p

Kerr also mentioned that they could have won two of the three games they played on their road trip. However, he mentioned that he’s proud of the group, saying that the team is “miles ahead” of where they were when they played at the Chase Center three weeks ago.
The 54-year-old coach did say that the team should be able to improve on the things they did so far. He emphasized that the Warriors need to focus on correcting the mistakes they had if they want to have a shot at winning.
Golden State is doing everything they can in spite of the injuries to their key players. D’Angelo Russell is doing solid work in deputizing for Stephen Curry, averaging 25.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 6.3 assists.
This will be a long season for the Dubs, but they should put their trust in Kerr and the team because things are bound to change. Moreover, they’re playing competitive basketball now.
