After becoming the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr is getting ready for his first season as a head coach of an NBA team. And there are things he’s worried about.
In particular, Kerr recently said that he hasn’t yet seen progress at the training camp with regard to turnovers. He believes it is a problem, according to InsideBayArea.
The Warriors last season averaged 15.2 turnovers per game and watched that number rise to 17.3 in the playoffs against the Clippers.
“We fling the ball around, and that’s a problem,” Kerr said. “I thought coming into this season, it’s probably the biggest change we could make as a team was making the easy play, making the simple play, taking care of the ball. That’ll only help our defense, and it should give us better rhythm offensively, but it takes a ton of work.”
“”We do fundamental stuff, passing drills every single day, and I would say to this point, very little improvement in that area,” Kerr said.
“I mean, we’re just flinging the ball around and turning it over, and our guys are going to have to make that adjustment,” he said.
Kerr underscored that if this particular area is not improved, the team will remain where it was, without going to the next step.
Steve Kerr, who recently signed a 5-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, played 15 years in the NBA, winning 5 NBA titles – 3 with Chicago Bulls (96-97-98) and two with San Antonio Spurs (99, 03).
During his play days, Kerr was considered one of the best three point shooters in the NBA. He played in 910 NBA games (30 started), averaging 6.0 ppg in 17.8 minutes per game.Follow @exnbadotcom
