Kerr responded to TNT's tweet about Harden

959318731661848577

Did Kerr accidently tweet from his own account? Do you think he has a point? Do you think Kerr has room to talk when Steph does the same step back or since his teams thrive off illegal screens?

Thoughts?

They aren't illegal screens but they are manipulating the rule. Kerr is a clown. Total unprofessional when his team is constantly crying about every little thing.

Harden threw his head back so the ref wouldn't miss it. Ref didn't. He also barely leaned his head back.

Warriors screens are absolutely 0% different from 29 other teams. Actually I guess what's different is they be drilling 3's in dudes faces off them screens, and it's disheartening than a mother****er, so it makes people cry about it more and get annoyed by watching it, haha, but other than that it's all the same **** :cool:

What's hilarious about this to me isn't even that he looks like an idiot for accidentally posting a DM as a Tweet. As somebody who's not especially Twitter savvy, I can totally understand that. The funny thing to me is just how hypocritical it is.

The step-back jumper is hardly a new move in the NBA. Great players have been using the step-back jumper for years. Kobe and Mcgrady had great step-backs. But you know who also had/has them? Jordan and Steph. So the two best players on the teams he won titles with both regularly use(d) step-back jumpers consistently to get separation. He's just pissed because Harden is using it and using it at a rate with 3-pointers which is working an obscenely high amount of the time.

Despite my dislike of the Warriors, I actually like Kerr. I've heard him in interviews and podcasts, and he seems like a sharp guy. He's funny. He's likable. He's honest and open with his opinions, and we seem to agree on a lot of things. But stuff like this really does rub me the wrong way. He would never say this to Harden's face, and I guarantee he would never go over to a ref after Steph mad a step-back 3-pointer and say "You should have called traveling on that play."

And people need to get over the whole "there needs to be a rule change to take this away" argument. Again, players have been using step-back jumpers for years to get separation, and it's 100 percent a legal NBA move. You dribble, pick the ball up, move the first foot to the point where you're looking to get separation and the second foot to set yourself for the shot. Last time I checked, two steps before a shot was always the legal number of steps in basketball.

I actually think he would have said it to Harden but he wouldnt say it in a rude way because he doesn't seem like that type of guy. He likely would have tried to make lite of it while pointing out his thoughts.

As to the ref, I remember watching a game last year where they called a carrying and the tv caught him saying to ref, and I'm paraphrasing, that's a ridiculous call, if you start calling those will be here all day cause it happens every single play now-a-days.

That's fair enough and I think your right most coachs are that way. Pop calling out Zaza for stepping under Leonard when Pops never had issue with Bruce Bowen doing it or Aldridge doing it litterly a few players prior to or after the injury to us in the same game. It's human nature for them to try and stand up and call something out when they feel their team is being slighted. All while failing to point out they've also received the benefit of those same calls or lack there of at different times. I'm sure if you caught them in private and actually spoke about it it would be different then when they speak to the cameras as their trying to make a point heard vs discussing an actual issue.

Yes. If you don't see the difference that's fine. Even the refs don't call traveling most of the time. It used to be a half step to gather the ball then you get one step before it's travelling, now they give you a step to gather and 2 steps after that to shoot/pass. The change made offense easier and the NBA likes that.

How is Jordan's step back in that video any different from what Harden does?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5n1NotT5Ik

Explain the difference to me. Because I'm seeing Jordan dribble, then step to the side or back to create separation, set for the shot with a second step and then release the ball. Harden's doing exactly the same thing. How are these two moves different?

Scoots

Jordan picks up the ball, takes a step back, establishing a new base, brings his other foot back and jumps for the shot. Harden picks up the ball, takes a step back establishing a new base, then hops, then jumps for the shot.

It's allowed now and players got away with it back then too, but based on the way the rules used to be enforced that little hop is a travel. I'm sure Jordan did it that way sometimes too and Harden doesn't always do it, but it's the way it's taught now by some coaches because it's allowed and it improves shooting percentages.

Kerr is actually a big NBA name by association with Jordan, though. It's like Derek Fisher. He's really a nobody but because he was on the Lakers with Kobe/Shaq/Phil, his name by association generates headlines. I like Kerr too but that CP3 laughing at Kerr meme makes Kerr look like a joke haha
