"Before Tuesday’s opener was even played, the night was a win for Steve Kerr. Because he was there, the Warriors head coach. Kerr watched the game against the New Orleans Pelicans - No. 1 of the 24-game win streak to open the season and the 73 wins the team recorded - in the locker room. On Tuesday, he’s on the bench, with a team that is eager to get things started.", www.sfgate.com
"Myers said Kerr is “trending in the right direction” after missing most of training camp and the first 43 games of last season with complications stemming from back surgery. Kerr underwent back surgery in July 2015, weeks after the Warriors won the 2014-15 NBA championship. Kerr appointed Luke Walton, in just his second season as an NBA assistant, as Golden State’s interim head coach. Kerr received official credit for the wins Walton oversaw, and was named NBA Coach of the Year in April (Walton tied for eighth in the voting). With Walton now the Lakers’ head coach, assistant coaches Mike Brown and Jarron Collins would likely be the top candidates for the interim head-coaching job if Kerr misses time this season. Brown, hired in July to fill Walton’s vacancy as Kerr’s top assistant, owns a 347-216 career record in head-coaching stops with the Cavaliers (2005-10, 2013-14) and Lakers (2011-12). Small forward Kevon Looney is expected to be ready", www.sfgate.com
"OAKLAND, Calif. — The injury, as sickeningly gruesome as any to befall an athlete, occurred nine years ago. But still, Golden State’s Shaun Livingston rehabs his left knee, still ices on a daily basis. “I don’t think about it. I still have to train and do all my rehab. I have to ice. It’s really a day-to-day routine. I can’t get behind,” Livingston said. “Mentally it was the hardest hurdle to get over, not thinking about it. Just reacting and playing off your instincts. Because when you’re on the court, it’s all happening too fast, and you don’t have time to think: Is it going to be OK? Am I going to injure it again? You just play.” The very fact Livingston can play is a testament to his drive, his will — not to mention medical science. With the Clippers in 2007, Livingston, who was destined to be “The Next Magic Johnson” according to many, dislocated his left kneecap on an awkward landing.", nypost.com
"Speights scored 14 points off the bench, including nine in a second-quarter flurry, as Golden State stayed alive with a 120-111 victory. On Tuesday night, amid the doom and gloom of his team’s blowout loss in Game 4, Speights was one of the few Warriors players to surface on social media. Head coach Steve Kerr went straight to the source of his team’s homecourt advantage in advance of Thursday night’s unexpected elimination game: the fans. The crowd arrived much later than usual for the first two games of the series, no doubt slowed by Bay Area rush-hour traffic; Thursday night’s turnout at tip-off was noticeably better. Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson were named to the All-NBA teams, once again putting the Warriors’ trio in a conversation with some of the greats in franchise history. Curry received first-team votes from all 129 members of a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters who regularly cover the NBA, and Green (second team)", www.sfgate.com
"In the dark moments, and there were many, when pain stabbed away at his head and neck, when tasks that were ordinarily simple could be excruciating, Steve Kerr privately wondered if he might have to quit what had become a dream job as coach of the Golden State Warriors.", www.nba.com
