NBA Rumors: Steve Kerr to use offense influenced by Phil Jackson’s triangle scheme


The Golden State Warriors were able to snag head coach Steve Kerr out of the clutches of the New York Knicks this past week. But the story seems to go a bit deeper than just snagging Kerr from the Knicks as it appears that the Dubs new head coach has some special things in store for how he will run things in 2014-15.

According to a Q&A that Contra Costa writer Tim Kawakami did with Kerr, the triangle offense will no doubt influence the offense that the Dubs run next season.

This is interesting in that not only did Kerr spurn the Knicks and former head coach Phil Jackson, but he’s jacking his offensive style and taking it with him out west. It’s no secret that the triangle offense is what Kerr would have employed at the behest of Jackson in New York but even without Jackson in the picture Kerr is going to modify the offensive scheme to his liking.

It almost seems as though Kerr has more flexibility with the Dubs as Jackson may not be so open to annotations of his system as those in Oakland will be.
