Then Warriors forward Draymond Green did the same thing.

Andre Iguodala is, in fact, playing in Monday's game so perhaps they're just taking turns about who leads the huddle during any given timeout.

On Monday night against the Suns, Kerr handed some of the coaching reins over to the players, and the results were generally positive.

"I'd call it an experiment", Stephen Curry told reporters afterward (via ESPN). "As coaches, our job is to nudge players in the right direction", Kerr said. I don't feel like we focused well at all the last month. It's emotionally draining for these guys to play night after night, people coming after them.

Granted, the Warriors at 70% are still one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association, but after going just 3-3 in their previous six games, including a slew of slow starts for the team, head coach Steve Kerr wanted to do something to help his team get out of the rut. But they need to focus. He has to coach his team to make sure everyone's on the same page.

"I was terrible, actually". "They're exhausted of my voice", Kerr said. He stood off to the side with his back turned while players took turns coaching. "They already say LeBron's coaching the team anyway, so if I give him the clipboard they're really gonna say that".

Earlier in February, Yahoo Sports reported that Casspi could be traded due to unsatisfactory performance in three-point shots.

I liked how Elfred played in his first Suns appearance. Nor did it involve the Warriors (44-13) holding the Suns (18-40) to a 34.7 percent clip, while missing guard Devin Booker for the fourth consecutive game (hip pointer). Just having to count on each other and not having to hear my voice - and this sort of sounds like Charlie Brown's teacher, parents, whoever's voice that is - at this point, that's who I sounded like to them. He ran his team's huddles. Kerr said his guys needed to hear a new voice.

The trick worked. The Warriors ran away with the game and looked much like their old, dominant selves. You could be up 12 (points) and three minutes later, you could be down 10 with the firepower they have and them being an elite team.

In my consulting work, one of the biggest problems I see (even in successful organizations) is that individuals stop thinking for themselves.
