Kerr: 'I'm not ready to coach' Warriors in NBA Finals


Like I said earlier, "Winter is Here". 'I'm still feeling the effects'. But with Mike being out, I'll take his spot, after he took my spot media-wise.

"I told the team the good news is the team is really healthy, the bad news is the coaching staff is dropping like flies", Kerr joked.

But he made it clear that, despite the progress he has made in dealing with the ongoing effects of the botched back surgery he had nearly two years ago, he still isn't ready to return to the sidelines and coach the team in the upcoming NBA Finals.

Fast forward to today and, amazingly, the Golden State community and diaspora not only survived the devastation but made it all the way back to where they were past year - top of the Western Conference and ready to tackle the Eastern Conference winners.

Cleveland-Golden State 3.0 is the matchup fans worldwide expected and wanted, and James believes theyre in for quite a show. But Kerr has looked more like himself lately - and has been far more involved.

"I've been in every meeting, every film session, every practice". "[But] in thinking about that game, it's amusing because I know the concept of making the right play, making a simple play, understanding that there are deciding moments in games and the difference between winning a championship or not could be one of those plays". I think we'll use it as fuel. "It is weird. But we're doing okay".

Trump makes G-7 deal on trade, delays on climate
French President Emmanuel Macron also chimed in on the climate issue, praising Trump's "capacity to listen". Members of his administration are deadlocked about whether the USA should uphold the agreement.

The Warriors are the first undefeated team in the National Basketball Association postseason in 16 years, they're heavy favorites against the Cavaliers in the Finals, and they've got arguably the greatest National Basketball Association roster of all-time, with four All-Stars 29 years or younger.

Green: The Warriors' bench doesn't get enough credit. "But I'm not ready to coach yet. But it's still up in the air". "Still waiting for 'Ahhhhhh!'" Kerr said, reaching his hands to the sky as if to receive some miracle healing. After a pause, he smiled and said, "It's coming".

But will it be an epic ending like the Thrilla In Manila or "Return of the King?"

The much-anticipated third part of a trilogy between Cleveland and Golden State begins when Game 1 of the NBA Finals tips off June 2. While it's impossible to pin the Warriors' Game 7 loss on Steph's foolish decision, it was just one of the many mistakes made by Golden State down the stretch, which left the door open for the Cavaliers to complete their improbable Finals comeback. All the while, however, he was still dealing with the after effects of the surgery and trying to find ways to put them behind him. Unless there's something odd happening behind closed doors, the Warriors are playing better than ever before, and the irrational decision would be to dump Kerr for Brown.

Brown has been coaching the Warriors since Game 3 of the first-round playoff series at Portland, with Kerr assisting at practice and from the locker room before and during games.

Durant? They got him because of what they had built and - that's forgotten in some quarters - because they were able to dump salary on teams that knew they were helping the rich get richer but still did it. With things getting worse, I decided I couldn't coach. "I'm going to Cleveland".
