To go along with their top players making fake Twitter accounts, and constantly receiving technical fouls, just last night the Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr pulled off one of the most disrespectful, unlikable decisions in the National Basketball Association in recent memory.
"Veterans Andre Iguodala and David West took turns with the grease board in the first half, Stephen Curry was designing plays coming out of halftime and Draymond Green took over in the second half", Chris Cole wrote in the Arizona Republic.

That probably won't sit too well with the Suns. "They already say LeBron's coaching the team anyway, so if I give him the clipboard they're really gonna say that". While the players are ultimately the ones putting the ball in the basket, there's no denying that this is a team that trusts one another, and Kerr deserves a huge hunk of credit for ingraining that trust within his roster. But, we don't control them. I have not reached them for the last month. These two teams have yet to meet this season, but given the ways these guys have been playing, I'm not surprised to see the bookies giving the new-look Suns this many points. He averaged 32.8 points per game in four contests against the Suns last season. "I'm exhausted of my voice", Kerr said.
Kerr told Jay Triano, the Suns' interim head coach, that his intention was not to be disrespectful. They determine their own fate and I don't feel like we focused well at all the last month, and it just seemed like the right thing to do. Historically, though, those wins carried even greater significance, as they represented the 249th and 250th regular season victories of Steve Kerr's coaching career. They're exhausted of my voice.
If he can continue to be a threat from the outside, the Warriors will be a much better team.
Dragiev knows both clubs will be without a key player, as Golden State defensive stalwart Draymond Green is out with a finger injury and Phoenix point guard Devin Booker is sidelined with a hip injury. You could be up 12 (points) and three minutes later, you could be down 10 with the firepower they have and them being an elite team. "But it's up to us to change that". Next time the two teams face off, why should fans spend their hard earned money to go watch a matchup that one side has humiliated publically by saying they are light years ahead of the opponent?
