In his first extended public comments since Mark Jackson was fired, Curry said Thursday that he voiced his support for the coach but the team "made a decision otherwise." He also said the "semi-quick hire" of Steve Kerr was "kind of a shock" to most of his teammates. "There's no sugarcoating it -- it was a weird, expedited situation that we didn't see coming," Curry said. "And guys are human. You have to be able to adjust to it and have some time to respond. That's kind of what happened. I think we'll be fine once we have a clear picture of what's going on next year." ESPN.com

"One thing I can say about this organization, they want to win," Curry said. "Each decision is geared toward winning. That's something that flies well with a lot of players -- that they're going to try to put us in the best position to win. Obviously, I had a certain opinion of Coach Jackson that they made a decision otherwise, and I heard the reasons, but I won't dwell on it. "As long as we're focused on winning and taking advantage of the roster we have and the opportunity we have with this window to try to continue to get better, I'm just looking forward to next year and getting back to making that happen," Curry said. "I haven't lost faith in that at all. As much as I supported Coach Jackson and loved everything about playing for him, I think they're about winning." ESPN.com

In his first public comments since Mark Jackson was fired by the Warriors, Curry said Thursday that he disagreed with the decision. Curry said the "semi-quick hire" of Steve Kerr as coach was "kind of a shock" to most players, calling it "a weird, expedited situation that we didn't see coming." Curry had been the strongest supporter of Jackson before the Warriors dismissed the coach May 6 after a 51-win season and back-to-back playoff appearances. ESPN.com

Lacob, however, doesn’t strike me as the type who feels the need to acquiesce to the people who work for him. They need to learn how to deal with him. And that’s fine. But that’s not how the great owners in this league have worked. Lacob can stand to benefit from considering these elements when he hires. He would be very wise to consider it as it regards to Stephen Curry. One thing his star player appreciated was the lack of negativity in their locker room. No crazy, vile rap music, scarce profanity aimed his way, freedom to pray and talk about stuff that matters to him without being the outsider. San Jose Mercury-News

Q: Did you take Steph Curry’s opinion into account? Joe Lacob: Of course. Q: Are you concerned that this might sour his attitude about the organization? Joe Lacob: Not at all. Not at all. We spoke with Steph Curry several times actually. And I think he’s disappointed because he… I would even say he loves Mark Jackson as a friend as a coach. I understand that, we understand that. But I think he also likes this organization a lot and he trusts this organization. And I think he trusts Bob Myers and the crew at basketball operations. And I think you can answer that question by just asking him. You’ve got to give him more than a day to probably reflect on it. But I think you’ll probably find that he is supportive.
