This season looked better on paper for the Golden State Warriors, but once again the NBA has proven nothing is written in stone here. The Dubs are nothing like the team that dominated the Western Conference over the last five years and now have the worst record in the league.
The Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is on his way to missing the playoffs for the first time as coach of the Dubs, but he’s made sure to take things as easy as possible. In fact, despite having the worst record in the NBA this term entering, Kerr says he’s “really enjoying this season.”
“I’m actually really enjoying this season. That may sound strange, but these young guys have been amazing,” the 54-year-old said.

Golden State are 4-16 following Friday’s matchup against the Miami Heat. This season looks more and more about developing Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole and Ky Bowman, and owner Joe Lacob and general manager Bob Myers trust Kerr for that role.
Their fans got used to seeing their team making the finals every year, but that’s not the case anymore. Stephen Curry is out with a broken hand and Klay Thompson is still rehabbing his ACL tear. Kevin Durant joined the Brooklyn Nets in the past offseason, which is considered the beginning of the end for the Californians.
The Warriors should return to their best times next season once the injured stars are back, and there’s nobody better than Kerr to be at the helm when that moment arrives.
