What do you do when everybody turns it over too much, though?

When GSW starts turning the ball over a ton Steve Kerr starts yanking the careless players off the court. You'd be surprised how the players start taking care of the ball.
There are only two teams in the NBA that have more turnovers than the Warriors...guess the yanking isn't helping all that much.
It is their Achilles heal. When they are playing great ball their turnovers are very limited and they do lead the league in assists. They do manage to start limiting TO's when it counts.

Exactly.

He isn’t yanking Steph Curry out of the game to prove some point to him.

Are we seriously in here comparing the Golden State Warriors to the Bradley Braves...

What a time this is...


Some things I think can be cleaned up....will it happen by yanking guys, well, that really depends on the guy...

BUT, I think the best way over time to not have this happen is pretty obvious --- have better players handling the ball more...


Its become pretty obvious that we should be able to compete near the top of our league, BUT to compete there with consistency, we will probably (as B4L stated a few days back) need a high level PG that is better at deferring than our current one is
---If you need it, you don't have it. If you have it you don't need it. But if you need and you don't have it, you want it. If you don't have any of it, then you really don't know how to get more to get started then do you?---

Oh he has as well as Durant. After a game full of turnovers Kerr will run a practice of nothing but the fundamentals. And NO we are not comparing the two because the GSWs can make up their sloppiness with scoring like no one else but what I'm saying is that the best even can go through these patches but it is reversible. Mostly reversible through being mentally in the game at all times. Steve Kerr has taken a page from Phil Jackson and that is the Zen approach to the game which translate being in the moment. The younger you are the more chances you are caught up in a whole bunch more things then just playing the game. Through mental practices you can improve your game to maintain your focus. Your best games are when you are in "The Zone" and the better players and teams are able to get there and stay in that zone for longer periods then most.
