Marc Stein: Steve Kerr tells @NBAonESPNRadio he's still deciding between Kevin Durant or LaMarcus Aldridge to start for injured Anthony Davis. But Kerr says coaching ex-teammate Tim Duncan is what he most looks forward to at ASW and does like idea of making Duncan chase around Melo. Kerr was laughing as he said it but admits messing with Duncan is one of his ASW priorities. As you'll hear in his full @NBAonESPNRadio chat Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

Warriors coach Steve Kerr treated his weary team to a surprise "practice" at a nearby bowling alley Tuesday on the eve of the final game before the All-Star break at Minnesota. The Warriors' camaraderie and competitiveness remained on display. Stephen Curry danced in celebration after tossing a strike. Harrison Barnes talked trash on Twitter after rolling a 203, a score that teammate Justin Holiday didn't come close to matching. "Practice would have been a complete waste of time, but we didn't want them sitting around the hotel all day either," Kerr said, citing the mental fatigue for a team with a 41-9 record.

But Stoudemire starred under Alvin Gentry in Phoenix… when Kerr was the GM there… and I think both men might be able to see a back-up 4/5 role for Stoudemire with the Warriors if he was interested in coming for a playoff sprint. San Jose Mercury-News

Kerr still can't believe how fast things have come together with the Warriors. After all, he worked as a broadcaster during All-Star weekend the last four years. Now he'll be the game's first rookie coach since Indiana's Larry Bird in 1998, and he's hoping it's the first of many more appearances. "My goal is to someday become Phil Jackson and complain about having to coach the All-Star game," Kerr said, chuckling. "But I'm not there yet." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Before the Warriors lost to the Hawks, 124-116, in a potential NBA Finals preview Friday, Kerr said he hasn’t thought ahead to his Garden night of reckoning. “Sometimes I lie to you guys when I say I haven’t thought about stuff,’’ Kerr said. “Like the Klay [Thompson]-[James] Harden thing. I’ve lied to you about five times on that. But I’m not lying this time. I haven’t thought about the Knicks at all. This is obviously the game that we’re focused on. We traveled across the country [Thursday] with the day off. The coaches watched tape on the flight. We did our walk-through this morning. And then after the game tonight, I can give you my Bill Belichick ‘We’re on to New York,’ and we’ll talk about the Knicks.’’ New York Post
