"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

Anthony has kept an extremely low profile since the regular season ended in mid-April unlike past offseasons. On April 29, Anthony met secretly for two hours at a Tribeca steakhouse with Knicks president Phil Jackson, who told him at the time Steve Kerr was going to be the new Knicks coach. Things have changed significantly since Anthony and Jackson met. Kerr passed on Knicks after initially being lowballed on a three-year, $13.2 million offer. Kerr’s reluctance to sign allowed the Warriors to rejoin the fray after Kerr initially declined to interview with them. New York Post

Q: How's your double-life going when it comes to getting rolling with Golden State while flying around covering these games? Steve Kerr: Well it's busy, but it's all good. The hardest thing is responding to all the people who are looking for spots. Everybody is calling me about a spot on the (coaching) staff. I've got a million calls to make. That's the hardest part. But I'm talking to (Warriors general manager) Bob Myers every day, and we're working on the staff and I'm finishing up with Turner before I can head up to the Bay and I can get going full speed. I'm looking forward to that, and then I'm also having fun doing this last series with all my guys at Turner, so it's great. USA Today Sports

While four-time NBA champion and three-time Coach of the Year Gregg Popovich is thought to be earning $6 million annually with the Spurs, Steve Kerr, a man with absolutely zero coaching experience at any level, just signed a deal worth $5 million annually from the Warriors to become their next head coach. Stan Van Gundy and Doc Rivers both received $7 million to coach their teams and have the final say in roster decisions, with both inevitably having to hire again a general manager to do the bulk of the leg work on the roster construction, while Coach of the Year Tom Thibodeau had to fight for his $4 million.
