Kerr opted to lay off coaching, and allow his veteran players to run the huddle and call plays saying that he was simply trying to reach his team and also lay back a bit ahead of the NBA All-Star break.
Suns’s players such as veteran Jared Dudley took issue with Kerr’s play but also admitted that the Suns were deserving of the humiliation.
Injured Suns guard Devin Booker and head coach Jay Triano also said they were okay with Kerr’s decision.
Mitchell, on the other hand, had some critical comments.
“I have nothing to say,” Mitchell said. “For the people who think this is great, just let someone with no experience come to show up at their job and that’s not what they do and you let them do your job.”
“Look, I understand Steve Kerr’s been winning, he has two championship rings, he’s been to three Finals and Golden State can do what they wanna do… If they win Smitty, do I even need to coach them? Why don’t I just pay Kevin Durant an extra mill and say ‘you be the player-coach now’?”
Sixers, Lakers Interested In Jamal Crawford
The Golden State Warriors are also interested in Crawford, but if Patrick McCaw re-signs, there won’t be an available roster space.
Crawford, 38, reportedly isn’t close to making a decision on which team he wants to play for next season, but has stated in the past that he would like to play for the 76ers.

Warriors’ Andre Iguodala Says Kevin Durant Is Most Talented Scorer of All-Time
Get ready for the next great debate.
“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.
