Steve Kerr status: EXPOSED.
I feel like I might be overreacting to JaVale McGee’s run of good play to start the season, but then again, I don’t think it’s overreacting when you get hyped for a guy who’s averaging 17/6 on 62% shooting after spending the past couple seasons as an afterthought on the bench.
This is what happens when McGee gets minutes. He produces. We’ve known this for a long time. But Steve Kerr, who has shown no real coaching acumen but has a big ego because the stacked roster he inherited couldn’t help but produce championships, resisted the calls of the fans to give McGee a bigger role. We can now see clearly how big of a mistake that was.
Also, it appears that concerns over McGee’s feeble, asthmatic lungs were overblown, because he can apparently play 25 minutes a game without collapsing. My apologies for perpetuating that rumor. I was just desperately searching for reasons why McGee would only get 10 MPG despite being hyper-efficient and a perfect complement to the rest of the Warriors’ team, even though the reason was right in front of me: Steve “Fraud” Kerr.
Hopefully McGee continues to play well so I don’t look stupid for everything I’ve just written above.
