Steve Kerr is unsure about whether or not he will coach in Game 1 of the Finals on Thursday but he would not coach if he had to decide on Monday.
This is a sort of under-the-radar plot line heading into the Finals. The Warriors struggled to make adjustments in last year’s Finals and much of it was due to an over-allegiance to their free-flowing offense. When things got tight and Cleveland found things that worked defensively, the Warriors just pushed further into their trouble spots of turnovers and bad shots. Whether or not Kerr would mark a change in that dynamic in relation to Mike Brown is a big question mark, and though Kerr’s presence will undoubtedly be felt and he’s among the best coaches in the game — will the new chain of command create challenges that get exasperated during key moments?
Steve Kerr says he's feeling better, doesn't know if he'll coach Game 1, but it sounds unlikely. Will travel to Cleveland regardless. pic.twitter.com/w9cLTQyJHs
