Kerr also claimed to be unaware of the constantly changing narrative as this Western Conference Semifinals series between the Warriors and Grizzlies plays out. The latest is that the Warriors, said to be in trouble entering Game 3, have gained a big edge by winning that game. "It's chatter, 24 hours of chatter," Kerr said. "I don't know any of this. Honestly, I don't read anything during the playoffs. That's why I didn't know about Monty." CSNBayArea.com

Q : When you put your staff together, did you have a dynamic that you wanted to get, and has it met that expectation? Steve Kerr: Yeah. I wanted experience on either side of me. And then I wanted this, right here, what you’re seeing. I wanted guys like Luke or Jarron who had just finished playing, who could get out on the floor and be more physical with the players. This is really important. Luke and Jarron, any time we have injuries like we have today–McAdoo rolled his ankle, so he can’t scrimmage. For those guys to jump into a 3 on 3 is huge. For them to be able to go to one of our players and say, ‘When I guarded Dwight Howard, this is how I approached it.’ You need some hands-on experience from guys who have actually done it. But I also needed the wisdom of experience that Ron and Alvin bring. San Jose Mercury-News

Q: Alvin is focused on the offense, Ron on the defense. But do they bring different general viewpoints to the game beyond that? Do they balance off of each other? Steve Kerr: There’s given and take with all of us. But they really see the game totally differently. Alvin sees it from an offensive perspective; Ron sees everything from a defensive perspective. I believe Ron would like to win a game 4-2. And I don’t think Alvin would mind winning 138-130. So it’s good to have those two different looks and approaches. They balance each other out and they complement each other. San Jose Mercury-News

We were in the middle of the second quarter and it felt like we were in desperation mode." San Jose Mercury-News
