    Shams saying it's El Uno's Clips on the 18th. Woooot!



    Not expecting instant chemistry or anything close, but should be hella fun to watch. If nothing else, poor Looney, Bell, Jerebko and Green will no longer to have to battle 7-foot 270 lb. NBA centers for 48 minutes a game.

    Can't wait for Boogie to lose it on a ref and for Dray to step in and try to talk him down off the ledge.

    Ahh well. It's an L either way. I'd honestly hold him back one game though. Harrell is very annoying and there's a greater than 1% chance they both get kicked out in his debut.

    DeMarcus is gonna jump right into the fray, per Kerr.

    Kerr on coaching Curry: I just told him to make five or six impossible shots in a row, and he did it. He's very coachable.

    Ha. That's great. That pretty much sums up coaching this Warriors team.

    Tell it to Mark Jackson, who somehow managed to coach a team with the most devastating offensive player in NBA history and 73-win potential to a #6 seed / first round exit that was #11 in the league in offense and (literally) dead last in the NBA in passes per possession. Shades of Jarrett Jack pounding the rock at the top of the key while everyone stood around and Steph waited forlornly in the corner in the hopes that his defender would leave him.

    No wonder the Preacher was so salty last night (and is every time he calls a Warriors game) — refusing to allow that Steph's work ethic has anything to do with how good he is, pointing out how well-deserved every call against the Warriors was, whining that the Pelicans should have won, etc. etc.

    As far as Kerr: there's obviously a ton of truth in his comments, but they also say a lot about how self-deprecating and witty he is, especially compared to the self-serving blowhard who preceded him.

    On a side note: by all means, keep the current thread title as is. :)

    Kerr with a nice little political jab in the process.

    Truly, could the Warriors have handled this any better? Fuckers!

    Sorry it had to happen v. my second-favorite team, but congrats, Steve Kerr. 300-77.

    That gives him credit for Luke Walton's 39-4 start in 2015-16, which seems a little unfair.

    Seems pretty fair to me, given that he hired Walton for his staff, and that Walton was running his schemes, his rotations, and consulting with him daily. If you're gonna dock Kerr those games, you have dock the head coach a win every time he gets ejected and his team wins. (Edit: and you'd have to give Mike Brown credit for a bunch of Kerr's 2017 playoff wins).

    I mean, assistant coaches are huge parts of any team's staff, but that goes for Walton, Mike Brown, Ron Adams, Jarron Collins, et al. Generally something like "auteur theory" is applied to head coaching. (Like, Orson Welles gets credit for Citizen Kane even though there were plenty of shots and scenes for which Gregg Toland was responsible, etc.)

    Coach K disagrees with this analysis...

    This has been standard for decades. When George Karl missed games or chunks of games for his cancer treatments the games Won or Lost when Adrian Dantley was calling the shots for the Nuggets were all credited to Karl.

    They are going to go 16-0 in the post season unless Gordo gets healed

    Or Durant or Curry get unhealed.
