The Official 2013-14 Golden State Warriors Thread

At least we got the guy that Lacob wanted first. Better than having the third option that Lacob did not want first.

He played in the NBA for 17 years was in the playoffs many times, he didn't play with MJ. He signed a 4 year 8 million deal with the Warriors.

Kerr played 15 seasons in the NBA and was in the playoffs many times. He has experience post-playing career working for an NBA franchise. Please, lets not turn this into a race issue.

Did it ever occur to you that Detroit wasn't an option....because he wasn't interested? He was a hot commodity that could afford to be picky with where he would coach. Detroit had to give SVG full control of the organization to lure him there. That's how desperate they were, and you use them as an example lmao. NYK and GSW were the only two jobs Kerr would consider....that's a FACT.

if NY and GSW were the only 2 teams please quit making absurd comments where he was a hot commodity as if the NBA teams are lined up for his service. irregardless it's going to be a long season.

Dude, they were the only two teams because they were the only job openings he would consider. He's not going to listen to every s**tty team that comes calling. He's not going to listen to the Cavaliers or the Bucks. He's only going to consider prime coaching opportunities. Knicks and Warriors were the best of the bunch.

Currently, yes. They have zero talent outside of a broken down Kobe Bryant. There is dysfunction within the organization since Dr. Buss passed away. It's a bad situation. GSW is a much better spot at the moment.

Have you seen today's Lakers? Yes, they f**king suck and they'll suck for awhile too.
Kerr wasn't my first choice but I'm willing to give him a chance to prove himself. A few of you are already quick to judge and jump to conclusions of our upcoming season before it even starts. Smh.
I unpinned it because its over, but Kerr is a hope it works bet. Another ex player with no coaching experience. Meh

You don't know that. Let Kerr coach one season before judging him. He was a hot commodity for a reason. He knows the game.

THIS. What a joke to already saying that this will be a long season for the Warriors. Some people shouldnt post.

I'm glad the Warriors got the guy they really wanted. He was the one name that the fans and players (hopefully) will be excited about. I am very surprised that Kerr chose the Dubs but happy right now about it.

Seriously! Why is race even being brought up here. Mark Jackson was not hired or fired because he was black and Steve Kerr wasnt hired because he is white. I get so tired of people who want to use the race card on everything.

I have mixed feelings, he's never coached. If he was African-American with the same resume would he be even considered? Gentry, McMillan and several others are basketball men that ran teams and produced. Do you think the aforementioned coaches, if signed by the Warriors, would've received the same salary ?


This is along the lines of what I said earlier today...it's something that would've been there regardless, but magnified by the Sterling situation, it's not hard to imagine that some Warriors players might be upset that a coach they campaigned to keep--said they were playing for his job, said they wanted him to stay, a coach they respected and loved, a coach that helped turn the franchise around, a coach that WON, and a coach who is black--was fired by the white owner who then backed up the money truck for the white TV analyst with zero coaching experience.

As I said, the team leaders are pros, they're going to adapt to whoever is there, but to some of those guys I bet it's just a bad look. They just better win, because if they revert to losing ways then with this already being an issue that's getting some discussion, it will get a lot worse.
I feel sorry that your feelings got hurt and you're upset at the comment "it's going to be a long season" Ninerjohn.
