Golden State sending group to woo Kerr

Golden State’s management group is sending a group to Oklahoma City to make a final push for Steve Kerr (Wojnarowski, May 13).

Kerr is in Oklahoma broadcasting the playoff game there.

Previously, other teams hadn’t been courting Kerr because they believed he was too far along in negotiations with the Knicks (Berman, May 2).

Kerr is expected to make a decision this week.

Word out here in SF is they are going to back up the truck and dump a ton of money in front of Kerr because they have no plan B.

Told everyone last week Phil need to grow some nutz and tell Kerr to kick rocks.... why the  fluck aren't we moving in another direction is beyond me as Kerr take Sale pitches from other  Teams... its been 3 WEEKS since Kerr was offered the job and all we learned since then is how he's trying to heist the KNICKS out of 30 million.  Let him get that 30Mil from the Warriors.... doubt he get 30Mil or  24Mil offer from any other team.

Van Gundy is going to be a good match in Detroit.  He should do well with some moves.


he'll build around drummond like he did d12

Does anyone think Chris Paul threw that game last nite ?  

Maybe he did it because the owner is a s-bag .

i see okc in game fours last 6 minutes and the clips in game fives last 3 minutes reverted to knicks ball, melo ball, or iso ball if you will, no wonder our team is an accident waiting to happen but the positive patsy's keep singing the same old tune.

the ONLY three things we need in a head coach:


1. be willing to completely give your identity to Phil and take on his system as a triangle disciple


2. be able to motivate players and make logical end game decisions.


3. be able to deal with the press and speak intelligently.


if Kerr goes to GState it shouldnt be that hard finding another qualified candidate.

Wouldn't be surprised if Jackson hires an unknown assistant or someone totally off the radar. Would kind of welcome it to be honest.

What odds could you have got on betting that SAS would be featured in a beef jerky commercial?

Jackson need to tell Mills and Dolan to stop screwing around and sign Kerr, before the Warriors do.

@cole3244 You obviously didn't watch the whole game last night....the Thunder played ISO hero/ball all game, and do it MANY times throughout the season.  They had 105 points, on 14 assists...know what that means?  Ball didn't move to well...difference is..they have two superstars taking the shots..Durant 22...westbrook 23 fga...its not the best way to play..if ur playing ISO constantly...ISO ball has its nitch in the game of basketball though...especially on mismatches.

@illmatix I don't watch hockey at all but I watched that game and it was excellent, start to finish! I was so glad the Washington/Indy game was over early.

@OLDKNICK Im not sure  about the timing but something definitely needs to be done ASAP


I'd love to see the Clips bounced from teh playoffs.  Maybe CP3 threw the game last night.


i havent watched an NBA game since the sterling news came out.  Subway series is making it easy.

I'd assume that the NBA has an army of lawyers working on this. It's more important for the NBA to get this right, than to move quickly.

@pezhao  

Bill Cartwright was already interviewed by Phil and he has head coaching experience. I'd assume that he would be Plan B.

@sir_manolo If Cartwright is Phil backup plan then I'm outta here until someone else takes over.


Enough is enough!!! my patience is very short.

I'd assume he would try to get Ryan Anderson or another stretch 4. Anderson really opened the court for Dwight back when SVG was in Orlando. SVG needs three point shooters.

@MeloStat301 I just feel it's either Durant or Westbrook going one on one.  Westbrook trying his best to take the hero spotlight away from Durant or others. He needs to learn to pass the ball more.  He should be moved to a 2 guard and utilize his strengths more like a JR type of role last season, but obviously starting.  The terrible decision making throughout the whole game mainly down the stretch was  brutal to watch on Westbrook's part.  Refs aside Cp3 and the Clippers did everything they could to lose this game.  The Clippers were just milking the clock with no movement whatsoever chucking up three balls.  Reminds me of orange and blue.  I don't like how Brooks is running this team from an X and O's standpoint.  The offense mainly isn't flowing properly.  Defense is a whole different story with OKC's two stars

Hope not. That's a bad choice as a head coach. The general consensus serms to be he's only being looked at as an assistant.

@knicksgirl35 Im starting to think you are Kerr manager

knicksgirl35

@kingofny @knicksgirl35  Kerr has a new manager who is trying to do his job and get the best deal for his client. Wouldn't you want the best deal? lol

@kingofny @sir_manolo @amarmelo  Why do you hate the idea of a newbie coach?

@amarmelo @knicksgirl35  I never said that. I just think the recycling of the losing coaches never gets a team anywhere. I think the Knicks need fresh and new. Even a winning college coach would be better than anything we've had lately.

@amarmelo @kingofny  Because he is the complete opposite of Woody and Phil wants him. I think he'll be a good coach.

@illmatix @knicksgirl35 @BiggieTKB  Maybe the more he hears from Sterling the angrier he gets. That latest interview was awful to say the least. I just can't believe CP made such dumb play at the end of such an important game. Now if it were JR that would be a different story. lol

@illmatix @Knicks_Fanatic@SheSaidSpikeWho 

The SVG Magic were right up there with D'Antoni as far as hoisting up three balls. That's why GSW wanted him. He will look to spread the floor with shooters and open up the interior for Drummond. In Orlando he had J-Rich, Anderson, Redick, and Turkoglu all bombing from deep.

@pezhao  respectfully, i think you are wrong.


sterling owns a franchise which is has very different treatment than traditional property.


all owners agree to a by laws and the by laws are clear on the situation.


An owner can be voted out by 3/4 majority for actions or statements that harm the NBA brand.  And ALL owners in an ownership group are thrown out.


and yes if they want to throw someone else out it's up to 3/4 vote if the commissioner brings it to the owners.

Who is saying that there are? Relax Pezhao. Let Phil mess up first before you start calling him out for poor negotiating tactics. You have no idea whether there's any Plan B in place. Neither do I. I'm willing to wait and see. You're obviously free to do otherwise.

I disagree. Why should he show his hand to the fans and media as to a plan B? Doesn't accomplish anything. I 'll just wait and see what happens before I criticize his negotiating tactics on the coach.

We don't know if there's a viable. "Plan B". Just because it hasn't been reported by the press doesn't mean there isn't a legitimate alternative being considered. I doubt it's Bill Cartwright.
