Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr and his staff will coach the Western Conference All-Stars for the 2015 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 15, at Madison Square Garden in New York, the NBA announced today. Kerr, in his first season as an NBA head coach, is Golden State’s first All-Star head coach since Don Nelson earned the honor in 1992. Kerr’s staff consists of Alvin Gentry, Ron Adams, Luke Walton, Jarron Collins and Bruce Fraser. NBA.com

The typically mild-mannered point guard got involved in a rare altercation before finishing with 22 points and 10 assists, and the Warriors held off the Houston Rockets 126-113 on Wednesday night for their franchise-record 17th straight home win. Curry, who already had a technical foul, ran at Trevor Ariza after the Rockets forward bumped him on the way down court early in the third quarter. Curry had to be held back by teammate Draymond Green, and officials called a technical foul on Ariza following a video review. "That's about as mad as I've seen him," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of his star guard. USA Today Sports

Santa Cruz coach Casey Hill spent this summer learning the system Steve Kerr implemented with Golden State. The Warriors, like many teams, want players to know the system at both levels so when they're called up or sent down — as center Ognjen Kuzmic has been often this season — they know what to do. "It's a tool that we're going to use, and we have used, to make our NBA team better," Warriors general manager Bob Myers said. USA Today Sports

Nearly halfway through the season, the Warriors are at the top, the Knicks under Derek Fisher are at the bottom. “I totally feel for [Fisher]. The NBA is a roller coaster. It’s really fun when you win, really devastating when you lose,” Kerr said. “Unfortunately it’s part of the gig, and I guarantee you I’m going to be facing that at some point in my career.” New York Post

“Clearly, we had an opportunity to make a big deal, which would have involved Klay, and it was a very complex decision,” Lacob says. “It went on for quite a long time. Really a couple of months. It’s always a tough call on something like this. There are great players going both ways. But at the end of the day, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are maybe the best backcourt in the NBA. That doesn’t come along every day.” After months of speculation, Kerr sent a text message to Klay: You’re not going anywhere. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to coach you. Grantland

And indeed, Thompson credits competition between teammates for his development into an all-around scoring threat. “Trying to chase Steph,” he says. “That’s how you stay hungry. Try to do what he does. I can’t do that. I don’t think anyone on this planet can.” As Thompson and Curry have grown into what many believe is the NBA’s best backcourt, it has become clear that they’re linked by much more than their catchy Splash Brothers nickname. Their fathers, Mychal Thompson and Dell Curry, both had successful NBA careers before becoming broadcast analysts for the Lakers and Hornets, respectively. Grantland

Winning over the royal son of the franchise, cornerstone Stephen Curry, was an important first step. Curry was close with former coach Mark Jackson, and the Warriors’ superstar was vocally unhappy when Jackson was fired. “It was two separate decisions that were made this summer,” Curry told FOX Sports after the Warriors' recent win against the Oklahoma City Thunder. “I wasn’t happy with the first one, letting Mark go. But obviously if that was the decision they made, they better get the right hire, and I think they did. Obviously, it’s shown with how we’re playing. “He’s the right man for the job.” FoxSports.com
