Golden State Warriors
No way Brooklyn wins Monday night’s game had it been played two weeks ago. Those Nets were a dying patient—old, slow and primed for burial even amongst the dreck that is the East.
The Golden State Warriors’ guard might be the man of the weekend, and even he can’t believe how quickly it’s happened after he was an All-Star snub just two years ago.
Draymond Green had 20 points and 13 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors beat the New York Knicks 106-92 on Saturday night to give Steve Kerr a win in his first game coaching in the arena he nearly called home.
The matchup of the league’s best-shooting teams coming into the game – the Warriors at 49.7 percent, and Brooklyn at 48.6 percent – lived up to the hype in brief bursts.
Boomer and Craig discussed the apparent mishap of the Warriors’ owner, while ‘The’ Eddie Scozzare provided some sound drops of Boomer trying out dialects other than his native English.
The 28-year-old Livingston averaged 8.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists with Brooklyn last season.
On Wednesday, Kerr agreed to become the head coach of the Golden State Warriors. The news didn’t sit well with WFAN co-host Joe Benigno.
The Knicks managed to convince Phil Jackson to move east. Jackson couldn’t do the same with Steve Kerr, who spurned NY on Wednesday to stay closer to home with the Warriors.
As the Steve Kerr negotiations dragged on longer and longer, it became more and more clear that something wasn’t right. It was truly an “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” situation.
The Warriors won the bidding war with the Knicks for Steve Kerr on Wednesday, hiring him away from the TNT broadcast table to be their coach.
Steve Kerr, who was reportedly on the verge of becoming the Knicks’ next coach, is not coming to New York after all, instead accepting the head coaching job with the Golden State Warriors, according to multiple reports.
While Steve Kerr’s representatives reportedly work out the details of an offer that, if accepted, would make the him the Knicks’ head coach, the Golden State Warriors are not conceding anything.
The Knicks could have Kerr on board as their new head coach by early next week. If not, it’ll be back to the drawing board.
Jackson needs to get his man. Whatever his Plan B is doesn’t matter. The Plan A needs to work. That’s why Jackson is getting $10 million a season to run the Knicks.
The Knicks remain the frontrunner to land Steve Kerr as their next head coach, but they have some competition. According to a report, Kerr will listen to the Warriors if they approach him about their coaching vacancy.
