Green ran most of the timeout huddles throughout the game. Kerr said he considered allowing his assistants to take over the huddles , but added, "We're pretty consistent with our messaging. I felt it was better to kind of let the players figure things out and do things on their own."

During a timeout midway in the first quarter against the young Phoenix Suns, Kerr handed his clipboard to Andre Iguodala to run the huddle . Across the league, players occasionally may run the huddle for a small portion of a timeout , but Kerr 's decision to completely hand the reins over to

Opinion: Shaun White had to go where he had never been to be Olympic champ again

  Opinion: Shaun White had to go where he had never been to be Olympic champ again Needing to land a combination of tricks he’d never completed before, White soared above the halfpipe and put down the run of his life. In the end, he was Olympic champion again.“We were on such a great path, and it was that true question of do I really want this?” White said. “And stepping out on the snow again means that I’m willing to let this happen to myself again. That’s a big decision, and plenty of my friends were like, you’ve got medals. You’re blessed to be well off from this sport, you could easily just go sail into the sunset and write your novel.

Steve Kerr tried some next-level coaching on Monday. In fact, his strategy was to let his players coach themselves during timeouts . During the Golden State Warriors’ game against the Phoenix Suns, Kerr was seen stepping aside during timeouts and letting his players run the huddle .

Kerr allows Green and Iguodala to run the huddle during blowout victory.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr felt that his team was tired of hearing his voice, so he used an unorthodox method to reach the players on Monday — and it worked.

Kerr allowed Andre Iguodala to run shootaround, and even had JaVale McGee lead the film session before Monday’s game against the Suns. Not only that, he let some of his players run the huddle during timeouts (watch here). Iguodala, David West and Draymond Green (who did not play in the game due to a sprained finger) were tasked with coaching the team and drawing up plays during timeouts. Green ran most of the huddles, but West and Iguodala were given the opportunity as well.

The decision Kerr made was scrutinized by some media members, but the Warriors head coach didn’t seem to mind. He explained his thinking behind it after the 129-83 win, and also noted he let the team know ahead of time that he was going to do it.

“I told them the other night after the last game [on Saturday] that we were going to do it,” Kerr said, via ESPN’s Chris Haynes. “It’s their team. I think that’s one of the first things you have to consider as a coach. It’s not your team, it’s not [general manager] Bob Myers’ team, it’s not [owner] Joe Lacob’s team — although I’m not going to tell Joe that. It’s the players’ team, and they have to take ownership of it. And as coaches, our job is to nudge them in the right direction, guide them, but we don’t control them.”

Kerr also stated that he spoke with Jay Triano on the court immediately after the game ended so he could inform the Suns head coach that no disrespect or trolling was involved in the decision. The Warriors coach also explained why he did it.

It turns out new manager Aaron Boone agrees.

Kerr said he told the players of his plan after the previous game and they ran the show for most of the day. Andre Iguodala took over at morning the computer for the film session and Iguodala, Draymond Green and David West got most of the work designing plays and running the huddle during timeouts .

Okay, yes, maybe he gets points deducted for pulling this move during a game against the pitiful Suns, but Warriors head coach Steve Kerr did something genuinely cool and unexpected last night: he let his players run every timeout huddle .

“I told Jay afterward that it had nothing to do with being disrespectful,” Kerr said. “It had to do with me reaching my team. I have not reached them for the last month. They’re tired of my voice. I’m tired of my voice. It’s been a long haul these last few years and I wasn’t reaching them, and we just figured it was probably a good night to pull a trick out of the hat and do something different.”

Doing something different certainly worked out well, as the 46-point margin of victory was the Warriors’ largest ever in games against the Suns. It also tied for their fifth-largest versus any NBA team in franchise history. Kerr did say that his players were focused in the contest, and that they responded well, so maybe having them coach the team isn’t as crazy of a strategy as it first sounded.

The Warriors played like a team that was inspired on Monday night, for 48 minutes. Not only that, they scored 129 points — their highest total of 2018 so far. Kerr’s decision may raise some eyebrows, but it’s hard to question success.

When New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski refused to commit to playing next season shortly after Super Bowl LII, it threw a lot of people around the league for a loop. Was the emotions of losing a hard fought game against the Eagles getting the best of Gronk? Maybe he is indeed serious about retiring.According to ESPN’s Jeff Darlington, Gronkowski had mentioned to teammates weeks prior to Super Bowl Sunday’s postgame press conference that he was contemplating retirement.
