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 after losing Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson with injuries, while Kevin Durant left to join the Brooklyn Nets.
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 as they lost Stephen Curry with a broken hand and Klay Thompson is still recovering from an ACL tear.
The Warriors fans got used to seeing their team making the finals every year, but that’s not the case anymore. 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.
