"Steve Kerr Discusses Golden State Warriors' Lack of Trust and Bob Myers' Uncertain Future"
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr believes that the team's lack of trust was the major reason why they failed to become a championship team this season. Kerr noted that the incident between Draymond Green and Jordan Poole at the start of the season damaged the team's chemistry, and they struggled to regain the same culture, joy and chemistry as during their dynasty years. Additionally, Kerr stated that the mission to rebuild a trusting environment between the "two-timelines" of the team was a primary task for the franchise. "He knows that he also compromised things by what happened back in October. So part of him coming back next year has to be about rebuilding some of that trust and respect that he's earned here for a long period of time," Kerr said.
The Warriors have yet to make a decision on Green's $27.6 million player option, and his future could depend on what happens with Golden State's General Manager Bob Myers -- whose contract expires at the end of June. Green is said to be "very concerned" and a factor in his decision. "Our organization has a lot to sort through this summer," Kerr said. "I expect them back, but who the hell knows?" Only time will tell what the Warriors' fate will be in the 2021-22 season.
