Kerr handed over the clipboard to his players for the night, letting the team's veterans handle timeouts, presumably as a motivation tactic for his lackadaisical squad that has struggled with motivation all season.
The Warriors broadcast picked up a scene in which Andre Iguodala delivered instructions to the team, while Kerr stood to the side.
A few minutes later, it was Draymond Green's turn to seize the conch.
David West was the third player to have the clipboard.
Kerr's gambit could have come off as disrespectful towards the lowly Suns -there's surely no way he would have made such a move against a playoff-bound opponent - but he clearly felt it was worth the risk versus a tanking Suns team without Devin Booker in the lineup.
