Warriors vs. Kings: Steve Kerr exudes calm about team’s recent struggles

Steve Kerr has been under fire for not playing championship basketball during January of an 82-game season. He commented on some of the issues in anticipation of tonight’s game against the Kings.

After a tough loss to the Houston Rockets on Thursday night, it was inevitable that both fans and media would have questions about both the Golden State Warriors strategy and personnel decisions.

Golden State of Mind’s Duby Dub Dubs has already written about the rotation issues and, based on our super scientific poll, 52% of GSoM readers feel like something needs to change with the rotation. Prior to the Golden State Warriors facing the Sacramento Kings on a rainy Saturday evening, Anthony Slater of The Athletic tweeted out a video of coach Steve Kerr discussing the issue of rotations.

In a subsequent article about the subject, Mark Medina of the Bay Area News Group noted that the lineup of Curry, Shaun Livingston, Andre Iguodala, Jonas Jerebko and Draymond Green has recorded an offensive rating of 114 in 47 minutes over the last nine games since the rotation has shifted a bit.

In light of our aforementioned poll, it’s pretty clear that people’s responses to that will certainly vary...

...but for now, I just want to leave you with this thought from an article published yesterday by Grant Liffman of NBC Sports Bay Area: “ ...perhaps these discussions are a moot point as of now, and we should just wait and see how Curry is used once Cousins comes back.”

I mean...yes...?

Sometimes taking a step back and looking at the big picture is helpful.
