Things change, man. And that’s been the theme this entire season. You can call a certain portion of the fan base toxic and you’d be right, but you’d also be grabbing at low hanging fruit. The same methods they came up with in 2016 are not going to help them in a season where the core is aging and the hierarchy is staggered. So every game/choice is a magnification of how they’re choosing to adapt or not adapt. Especially Kerr. I don’t know if he SHOULD have called a timeout but Steph definitely shouldn’t have held onto the ball, trying to out-wizard the double team like he did. And that’s yet another example of things changing, as Steph is usually programmed to make the 3 on 4 pass. Gotta call it like it is and leave the low hanging fruit alone
