They still have a good team. They'll win 50 games on talent alone lol wtf

Time will tell whether this is a good move or not but its idiotic to make any judgement before Kerr has even coached 1 game.

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.
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 agree with what you're saying about Jackson and Kerr, but you've got to be kidding if you are honestly saying you don't see why race is being brought up. You've still got players in the thick of the playoffs--including the (arguably) best player in the world--talking about a boycott. You don't think that a white owner firing a succesful black coach and groveling after a totally inexperienced white coach and giving him a blank check might rub some people the wrong way?

the judgement was based upon his inability to put together a team a GM. what makes you think he can coach. it's my opinion he'll flame out. live with it.

I agree with you here, too...I'm a long-suffering Warriors fan who wanted Jackson to stay, but now I'm in full support of Kerr.

You guys are dumb. "It's going to be a long season" = "we're going deep into the playoffs"

Because genius he isnt being asked to put the roster together. He is simply being asked to coach the team. You think Trent Baalke could coach the Niners? LOL Two completely different roles.

You can have your opinion but it isnt based on anything meaningful.
His inability to put together a team lol he actually did pretty good as a GM

Who cares if it rubs people the wrong way. This was a business decision made to make the Warriors better and not something based on race. Unless someone can prove to me from statements that this was made because of race I will tend to just disregard any comments on itl.
I remember watching Kerr as a kid.

Beyond that I know nothing about his qualifications for being a HC or if this was a potentially good hire or a potentially bad one.

I would think the fact that Jackson wanted him to coach the Knicks would reflect positively on him. Conversely, random people texting knbr are saying he's done nothing as GM of the Suns and he'll bust here.

Someone please educate me.

Oh good grief, I think you're smart enough to know I never said or even implied this move was based on race...pretty sure you understand the gist was the optics of the situation, but I could be wrong.

Wish I could, but he's a complete unknown from a coaching standpoint...which to be fair, so was Jackson. And I think Jackson turned out to be a pretty good one, so I hope Kerr is even better.
Enough of the race talk please.

Right, but why all the hype? Was it Phil Jackson who started it? " well if Phil wanted him he must be good?"

That's my best guess, that the dominoes started to line up once Jackson took the Knicks job..."Phil wants Kerr, ergo Kerr must be a great coach." I don't know, maybe Kerr did a bang-up job coaching his kid's CYO team or something.
