Warriors coach Steve Kerr did some experimenting during Monday's game against the Suns, allowing his players to coach their teammates during timeouts.
During one stoppage, Kerr gave the whiteboard to veteran swingman Andre Iguodala, who proceeded to discuss tactics with his fellow players on the bench.

After the game, Kerr explained that he allowed his players to coach because it's "the players' team, and they have to take ownership of it."

I'm not sure what this says about the Suns, but if this marks the return of the player-coach, I'm all for it.
