Pretty crazy for the Warriors to give the job to a guy with no experience after the Jackson situation.

Makes no sense to me. They fired a guy that took them to 2 playoffs for a guy with zero experience. What possible improvement can they hope for here? WCF? An immediate title? They're starting over for no reason. And reportedly for 5 years? Is that how much your value goes up because Phil Jackson was interested in you, wow.

Considering he lives in San Diego, this doesn't surprise me. It's crazy how much coaching attention this guy got. Warriors failed with this decision. I'm just glad he's off the market because knowing Jim Buss he wouldn't of gotten him asap.

I am glad he is out of the running for the lakers. We should take Hollins, I would rather go for a decent coach and take the risk on players. I was surprised by Mark Jackson's success but He did it through charisma and motivational speech. What words of advice can Kerr offer rather than praise for Lebron (who we don't have) and worn out philisms (that wont work 2nd hand) ? I don't see him fashioning a trapezoid or pyramid offense (the triangle taken to a new post millenial spin) either. I would have tried Stan Van G too but he wanted the keys to the castle and Detroit gave it to him. Oh well Kerr feel free to prove me wrong, the nba certainly needs more high level coaches to stop the scape goat star satiating firings each year.

I'm happy about this.


No, really. This means I won't have to listen to Kerr anymore on TNT and NBA 2K. I really wanted Kerr to get a coaching job just because of that.

On the other hand, I'd gladly have Mark Jackson back as a broadcaster, but I think he did a good job as a coach, and he'll end up coaching another team next year.

Did Phil help him get this gig? Was he even a coaching candidate before his name was mentioned with connections to Phil and Knicks job.

Kerr used Phil for a better job.

Always thought he had more loyalty to Pop anyway.

This. Is. Nuts.

I never would have thought they'd go the inexperienced coach route again. How much did they give him again?

well showing loyalty to pop would be to play in another conference rather than compete in the same
---
knicks are in a terrible mess and gsw is locked in a bind of bad contracts but they still have a very talented team
it's really picking the worse of two poisons and i'd go gsw all day
if you go to the knicks, you will be put under a microscope and skies will be falling after losing 3 games in a row
if you go to the warriors, they aren't judged as harshly imo. the public loves them win or lose. as long as steph and klay keep dropping 3s, they will always be fun to watch and nobody will care that they are losing. that being said, gsw is already a playoff team that needs to get pushed to the next level, which is really a much better situation than the knicks who didnt even make the playoffs.

This.

I just never really got the allure and a lot of the media even spoke up to that. I understood him going to New York because he'd just be a puppet for Jackson. It made sense. Now he's actually in control and has to prove he's a 5-year coach on the first go around?

I mean good for him for landing that job, but what a mistake from the Warriors.

Also, thank goodness he's out of the booth. I couldn't stand that guy.

5 for 25 does sound insane. I'm all the way with others in this thread, I'm very glad Kerr is off the board and not in the Lakers HC discussion any longer. Agree with realdeal, too, stoked he's gone from the booth.

As far as how good a fit he is and what kind of job he'll do in GS, I wonder. On the one hand, I wouldn't count him out as a good potential coach - he has the gene, his dad was a coach (LA - Pali High) and I think a pretty good one. The problem I see though is that the Warriors players really liked Jackson and I think Kerr will be a very different kind of coach. He'll be getting his sea legs and they may not be that patient with him. As ever, we shall see.

But yeah, that's a lot of cheddar and a long term for a first time contract. GS is currently my second favorite team in the NBA behind us - too bad they are in our division.

Anyone else seeing the dots here?…. Phil wants Kerr….. West helps push Jackson out…. West most likely pushed to hire Kerr….

:man10: Yeah, interesting dynamic between them to say the least. Phil loses this round. Although, we'll have to see if GS's (West's) instincts were right or wrong in locking up Kerr for that long and at a pretty penny.

ppl can talk about phil all they want

10 times out of 10 a coach will take gsw over nyk
better players
no reconstruction required
more likely to not get fired within contract duration

the knicks are going to suck for the next two years so you can sign up to be the coach that rebuilt a team to contending form but everyone knows that coach almost always gets fired for the coach that takes a team to championship level. no org in today's era will be patient enough to stick with a guy from rock bottom to the top.

Phil's in the "deep end" now…. he always wanted the power to make personnel decisions…. we'll see if he's got the ability to do that as well as coach.

With an unproven coach, it looks more like West is trying to block Phil's success than bolster GS. It's like the Pacers signing Bynum to keep him away from Miami.

:man3: wait…. if Kerr is "unproven" in GS …and…..he would be Phil's "success" in NY? Does Kerr get better the farther east he goes?
