If Kerr does not win the NBA title…is he long to stay head coach?
I tell you all– how he handled the final three games right to the final 4 and half minutes was a disgrace.
Unless Joe Lacob fell and hit his head on cement..he must feel the same exact way. No grace period for having the best team in basketball fail two years in a row.
Stan- you’re kidding right? Kerr deserves some heat for the collapse, but he’s a great coach. There isn’t a coach in the NBA I’d rather have for the W’s.
I hear in the Giants org they refer to Bochy as Kerr.2 !
Jeeeeez…..how much longer you gonna grind that axe….
I like Axe grinding!..what good is a dull axe?
I’ve been very impressed with KD’s thoughtfulness too Lowell. I think it’s fair to note too that the Warriors have established a top-down culture of smart, confident people who are strong and opinionated but ultimately able to put themselves aside for the greater good of the team. I think as great a basketball player as KD is I’m most impressed with how perfect a fit he seems in terms of brains and personality. A credit to him and the organization in those key respects. This franchise is looking like an established culture that will endure.
Establishing a culture in any organization is a key to any kind of sustained success. Just look across the major sports and you see exactly that. In Boston, for the Patriots it is referred to as “The Patriot Way”, In Seattle the Seahawks are establishing that and in Pittsburgh you see it as well, an established culture that breeds winning. You have seen it in MLB right here with the Giants, the Yankees, the Royals of late, St. Louis Cardinals, Boston and now the Cubs (though we will see if it can be sustained in Chi-town) The NHL has given you franchises like Detroit, Montreal, Chicago, LA Kings and the New Jersey Devils who have consistently over the past 10 plus years won or competed for a Championship. And lastly in the NBA, the great teams of the Lakers and Celtics in the 80’s and the Spurs of the past decade plus all built and defined a culture that led to winning and competing at the highest level.
The Warriors certainly have that now and time will tell if they can sustain it.
Gary Radnich ripped you types Lowell as cockroaches asking questions at presscons.
So,where is HE? Why isn’t he asking questions? He never gets the irony. Let him show the young and old how the job is done.
Instead, he goes home.
Anybody pointed out that Kerr had the biggest face plant in NBA coaching history? Because,I’m not reading or hearing this from the docile local media.
And I sure don’t mean the Radnich like questions “Steve,What kind of car do you drive?. Do you want to know what I drive?”…
