OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr captured his 250th win on Saturday and then he took some time off on Monday.
During a timeout midway in the first quarter against the young Phoenix Suns — the team that drafted Kerr in 1988 with a second-round pick, and the team Kerr was GM of from 2007-10 — Kerr handed his clipboard to Andre Iguodala to run the huddle.
Iguodala sat in Kerr’s chair breaking down the plays to his teammates while Kerr stood a few feet away with his assistants.
Green ran most of the timeout huddles throughout the game.
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 players multiple times in a game is uncommon.
