Back in February, Steve Kerr invited plenty of anger from around the NBA universe when, in an attempt to spark his slumping club, he turned the clipboard over to his players.

The Warriors responded by throttling the Suns, 129-83, at Oracle Arena. With the team having won three titles in four seasons, Kerr knows he has to do everything he can to keep his Warriors motivated and locked in during the season to come.

“We did the one night where they coached themselves. We might do that five times next year,” Kerr told Amin Elhassan on SiriusXM NBA Radio on Sunday. “Maybe do it once a month, I don’t know.”
