Steve Kerr can't understand what the big deal is.

In the wake of turning over portions of the coaching reins to his Golden State Warriors players Monday night against the Phoenix Suns, the bench boss doesn't get why it's become a story.

"I've been quickly reminded today of what an insane world we live in, and how everything now is just a story and constantly judged and picked apart," Kerr told 95.7 The Game.

Kerr said after Golden State's 46-point win that he wanted to try the gambit because players can tire of the head coach's voice sometimes. He maintained it had nothing to do with disrespecting the lesser Suns, something Phoenix coach Jay Triano agreed with.

"I don't think it's something we would do often, but I think it's a good exercise," Kerr said Tuesday. "It's a nine-month season. I think you've got to do your best in the NBA to keep things light and loose and occasionally throw the team a curve ball. So I can see doing it again one time, a couple times. We'll see."

Warriors general manager Bob Myers told the radio station that Kerr came up with the idea to let players coach months ago.
