Steve Kerr RumorsAll NBA Players
SC: It’s just from case to case, but you have to demonstrate your values and you have to demonstrate the unconditional care for your athletes that you’re trying to develop, but it’s a process of feeling it out, feeling personalities out, seeing how they mesh, so the athlete can kind of understand what they’re trying to get out of the private coaching, and match you up hopefully with that perfect coach that’s gonna get you there, and it’s just about getting in the gym, or on the field, or what have you, and going through the process. Basically, like what happened with our coach this year, Steve Kerr, he came in — he’s not a private coach — but the feeling out process was quick. I understood what that coach was about, and how he’s gonna inspire you to get better, and you just trust the process.
Warriors ownership and management, from CEO Joe Lacob all the way down through coach Steve Kerr and the members of his staff, have been consistent in expressing their faith in Ezeli’s future. “I have coaches that are dedicated to helping me,” Ezeli said, singling out veteran assistant Ron Adams. “I worked with Ron every day. Ron has a vision for what he thinks I can be in this league. He thinks I can be a very big defensive force, but at the same time he also has high hopes for my offense. Coach Kerr says the same thing.”
