Steve Kerr: “Turning Steph Curry into James Harden won’t work for Warriors”

Kerr dismiss a potential tactical idea for the Warriors.

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was asked, before his team’s win over the Pelicans, if he would like to see Curry take even more 3-pointers to jolt a struggling offense.

Kerr said he didn’t think that would work for the way his team plays: “I don’t know that it’s that simple,” Kerr said. “We could turn him into James Harden and give him the ball every play. That’s really hard to do and you have to build a team for that. Houston has put five shooters on the floor for years now with Harden to give him that space. We don’t have that kind of personnel, so there’s not the same spacing. And that kind of basketball wears you out, too. Especially for a guy who’s 180 pounds like Steph is. So I don’t think the answer is just to run a million high screens. We don’t really have the personnel for that. And I don’t think it makes a ton of sense from Steph’s standpoint.”
