Steve Kerr has “regrets” Over Suns Tenure With Mike D’Antoni

Published

on

Before he was a championship head coach for the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr served as General Manager Steve Kerr at a time when the Suns were still competitive, and under the watch of head coach Mike D’Antoni.

That tenure didn’t yield the results that the team and the fans were hoping for and Kerr looks at the situation with regret nowadays.

“I have some regrets,” Kerr said, according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News.

“I think we had a few differences that I probably didn’t handle very well as a GM that I could’ve probably handled better, especially given that we really like each other and have a lot of similar viewpoints on the game.”

Kerr took over the “7 Seconds or Less” Suns and traded a productive Shawn Marion for an aged Shaquille O’Neal and fueling the departure of head coach D’Antoni to the New York Knicks.

“I should have let Mike know, ‘It’s okay, keep kicking [butt] and keep going, and we’ll make some moves that aren’t so radical that fit more with who we are as an organization,” Kerr said. “We swung for the fences, and it was not the right move to make as an organization. I didn’t envision that as GM. I didn’t have the macro view of what we needed to do….

“I needed to tell Mike, ‘It’s okay if we don’t win the championship,’” Kerr said. “We were so desperate to win. But not everybody can win. But what you can do is keep putting yourself in a position to get there. Then maybe the breaks fall your way.”

Kerr struggled before his eventual exit but found his way to the sidelines of the Warriors.

D’Antonio has found himself in another good situation as the coach of the Houston Rockets after unsuccessful stints with the Knicks and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Get ready for the next great debate.

Golden State Warriors veteran Andre Iguodala believes that his teammate, Kevin Durant, is the most talented scorer in NBA history, according to Sports Illustrated’s Ben Golliver.

“People don’t appreciate him enough. He’s the most talented scorer of all-time” Iguodala said. “Hands down. He’s a walking 30 points. He’ll get 30 on 12 shots. That’s very, very hard to do. Very efficient. Most guys need to feel the ball in their hands a lot to get a rhythm. He doesn’t.

While it would be hard to argue that Durant doesn’t belong in the conversation for all-time greatest, it’s hard to put him over LeBron James, Wilt Chamberlain, or Michael Jordan.
