In Topic: Steve Kerr spurns Jackson/Knicks Takes Warriors Job

Look at the current list of NBA head coaches.  More than a third of them were former players and most of them were guards.  That's the direction teams seem to be going with their hirings.

That front office is clearly of the mindset that they need to win playoff series and do it now and didn't feel like Jackson was the coach to do it for them.  That's why I questioned the Kerr hire in the first place.  It doesn't make a ton of sense to go with another rookie head coach when it appears that the team just needed a little more polish on top of what Jackson accomplished.

 

From Kerr's perspective though, it's really a no brainer.  If you take the Knicks job, you're only there because you're Phil's guy and the media questions when Phil is going to come down out of the front office and take the reigns from you if you're struggling, which, no doubt, will happen next year because that team is terrible.  In Golden State, he has a chance to take over a very talented roster and put the finishing touches on a championship caliber team.

Think Kerr will regret is decision within a year or two.

 

Why?  Even with Lee, Curry and Igoudala still on the books, the Warriors will be about $10-12 million under the cap going in to the off season and the Knicks, assuming Anthony doesn't exercise his ETO, are $30 million over.  Even if Anthony does exercise his ETO, they'll still be over the cap and stuck with Stoudemire, Chandler, Bargnoni, and Felton.

The Knicks situation is a long-term rebuilding project, not a great place for a first time head coach to land.

Can't really blame Kerr for taking that job over the Knicks.  Just look at the rosters.

I will say, after letting Mark Jackson go, I find it a little questionable that Golden State would take a chance on another first time head coach.
