"The beauty of Steph is he is who he is," coach Steve Kerr said. "He's reserved but competitive. He's modest but arrogant. "It's an incredible combination of confidence and humility and the way it manifests itself in the game ... it's really fun to watch." Let's just roll through what the NBA MVP has done in the Warriors' last six games, all victories, all with the stakes increasing each day. San Jose Mercury-News

"I think it's the ball-handling that leads to the shot," said Warriors coach Steve Kerr. "People ask me all the time who I would compare him with. I played with Mark Price years ago. Mark had a skill set that was really fun to watch, great ball handler, quick pull-up on a dime. Steve Nash, although Steve really preferred to make the pass and he was a reluctant shooter, could still shoot off the dribble. "But I don't think we've seen anybody this quick, [with] ability to create space and then pull up and six, seven feet beyond the line, with this kind of fearlessness and confidence. He's really something." NBA.com

He had improved over the summer, he was doing what he thought the coaches asked, but the results weren’t translating on to the court as much as he had expected. A few days later, the coaches met with him again. There was more going on with Green than his skills. “A part of that was I was coming into a contract situation. It’s normal for that to be on your mind,” Green said. “(Kerr) and Gentry sat me down and they said listen, ‘We know the situation you’re in. We know you’re in a contract year, and you better believe we’re going to do everything we can to help you in your contract year.’ Coach Kerr said, ‘I’ve played in this league 15 years, I’ve been a GM, I understand all that stuff.’ That kind of helped me settle down. It was like, alright don’t go out there worrying about that. It’s the completely wrong thing to be worried about.” Basketball Insiders

Kerr's first move spoke volumes: He assembled a first-class coaching staff, with lieutenants (Alvin Gentry and Ron Adams) who were better versed than him in critical aspects of the game. He never felt threatened by the players' fondness for former coach Mark Jackson and allowed them to keep several traditions from the Jackson era. He gained Curry's trust, inspired disillusioned center Andrew Bogut, managed David Lee's reduced role and convinced veteran Andre Iguodala, a longtime NBA starter, to come off the bench. "You're a huge reason why we're here today," Curry said as he turned to Kerr during the MVP acceptance speech. "Thanks very much for being you." Contra Costa Times
