Explain One Play: Steve Kerr Expands D’Angelo Russell’s Game

This one weird trick will help D’Angelo Russell fit better with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green

One of the big themes of this season is Coach Steve Kerr having the team play in an offense that will be compatible with the core of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. Because Steph and Klay are so incredible off-ball and Draymond is so intelligent on-ball, it is important for D’Angelo Russell to start becoming a threat off-ball.

Kerr is trying to expand D’Angelo’s off-ball game in a subtle but important way. So here is a video analysis of D’Angelo’s scoring from the 2019 Brooklyn Nets vs Philadelphia 76ers playoff series, and a comparison with the recent 1/28/20 Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers game and last night’s game at Cleveland Cavaliers.

For more statistics, and numerous In-Game Notes, I have a longer write up at Lets Go Warriors.

Final thought: For god’s sake, Dubs!! You can’t just tank all season and then take a night off against a serious rival for last place. REAL TANKERS (DON’T) BRING IT EVERY NIGHT



The Warriors will trade D’Angelo Russell...
