Who’s the best shooter on the Golden State Warriors? Stephen Curry? Klay Thompson? Kevin Durant? According to new Warrior Nick Young, none of the above.

A fan took to Twitter to ask Young who his team’s best shooter was. He went with his new coach.

To be fair, Young is probably just having some fun and trying to avoid ruffling feathers. He may even be kissing up to Steve Kerr, hoping that his new coach will deviate from the team’s stance and call him Swaggy P.

That’s all possible. Still, Young isn’t entirely off base. Kerr could absolutely shoot the ball.

In his career, Kerr shot at 47.9 percent from the field, 45.4 percent on threes, and 86.4 percent from the line. He twice led the league in three-point percentage and even once made an NBA Finals-winning shot which, in typical Kerr fashion, was described as bailing Michael Jordan out again.
