Steve Kerr isn’t mincing words.
Following a disappointing exit in the second round, the development of the team’s youth movement has come under fire. James Wiseman was traded unexpectedly midway through the season. Jonathan Kuminga showed promise, but was ultimately benched during the playoffs in favor of Andrew Wiggins and Gary Payton Jr.
Kerr also emphasized the need for Kuminga to improve his rebounding skills. Moses Moody had limited playing time during his sophomore year, but proved to be a valuable asset in the playoffs.
On the other hand, Jordan Poole, who was once considered a potential successor to the Splash Brothers, has received the most criticism for his lackluster scoring during the postseason. His scoring average dropped from 17 PPG in last year’s championship run to 10.3 PPG in this year’s playoffs, accompanied by a decline in shooting accuracy.
Steve Kerr pretty much blamed Poole and Kuminga for the Warriors struggles.

The Warriors dynasty very well might be over.
