Steve Kerr Rumors

The Bulls corrected course a bit after the 8-7 start and out-talented most teams for enough wins to enter the 1998 All-Star break at 34-15, a solid record, but very un-Bulls for that era. The two years prior, they were 42-6 and 42-5 at the break, running away with the top seed. Now they had triple the losses and trailed the Pacers in the standings. Sound familiar? That’s the arc of these Warriors, who went a slump-free, NBA-best 48-4 and 47-9 before the break the past two seasons, but now sit a noticeable tier lower, 44-14 after four recent losses, trailing the Rockets in the standings. “By far the most needed break for any team I’ve ever been a part of — GM, coach, player, however many years that is,” Kerr said. “I’ve never felt a situation like this where it felt so necessary to get away for a little bit.”
“The freshness of Dennis being a Bull and being (Michael) Jordan’s teammate and having the Bulls logo sprayed in his hair, that had already happened those first couple years,” Kerr said. “By Year 3, the novelty had worn off for him. He was flying off and doing (WWE) wrestling tournaments in the middle of the season. It just felt like everyone was losing interest. “As the season went on, more and more guys were losing interest in what we were doing and needing to go out and do other stuff. Michael was in many ways immune to that. He was obsessed and just played, loved it. But there was a fatigue that set in for the group that was palpable.”
Before Wednesday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr had strong words about the South Florida school shooting that left 17 people dead. “Nothing has been done. It doesn’t seem to matter to our government that children are being shot to death day after day in schools. It doesn’t matter that people are being shot at a concert, in a movie theater. It’s not enough, apparently, to move our leadership, our government, people that are running this country, to actually do anything. That’s demoralizing. “But we can do something about it. We can vote people in who actually have the courage to protect people’s lives and not just bow down to the NRA because they’ve financed their campaign for them. So, hopefully we’ll find enough people, first of all, to vote good people in, but hopefully we can find enough people with courage to help our citizens remain safe and focus on the real safety issues. Not building some stupid wall for billions of dollars that has nothing to do with our safety, but actually protecting us from what truly is dangerous, which is maniacs with semi-automatic weapons just slaughtering our children. It’s disgusting.”
