BREAKING: Kerr chooses Warriors

Steve Kerr, considered the favorite to become the next coach of the New York Knicks, has instead accepted a 5-year, $25 million deal with the Golden State Warriors. It appears that the main factors at play were money, contract length, Kerr’s reluctance to move off of the West Coast, and possibly the two teams’ respective performances this past season. The Knicks wanted Kerr, but it looks like they drew a line in the sand when they saw his contract demands. 

I thought Kerr would probably make a nice coach, but the main reason I was OK with him was because Phil Jackson trusted him. He has never coached at any level, and for all the “Triangle” talk, playing in a system is not the same as teaching it and running it. 

I wanted the Knicks to get a big name coach. Kerr does not fit this description. Maybe the Knicks will take a look at Mark Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy, Jerry Sloan, George Karl, Lionel Hollins, or another coach with more of a track record.
