Steve Kerr hired to coach Golden State Warriors

It had been rumored for weeks by the so-called NBA experts in the media, that when Phil Jackson took over as team president of the New York Knicks that he would hire Steve Kerr.

To some it seemed far-fetched that Jackson would actually hire Kerr, who has never been an NBA head coach, to lead the Knicks.

While Jackson was still deciding on who he would hire, Kerr was also negotiating with the Golden State Warriors.

As it turned out, the Warriors out-bid the Knicks and have hired Kerr away from his job as a TNT broadcaster to replace Mark Jackson as their head coach.

Kerr, according to his agent, will be paid $25 million dollars on a five-year deal.

The 48-year-old Kerr was born in Beirut, Lebanon while his dad, Malcolm was engaged in higher learning and research in the Middle East.

The former point guard played his college basketball at the University of Arizona for Lute Olson and his teammates included Sean Elliott, Tom Tolbert and Kenny Lofton.

As an NBA player, the 6’3, 175-pounder played for Phoenix, Cleveland, Orlando, Chicago, San Antonio twice and Portland. He scored 5,437 points and 1,658 assists. He won five NBA Championships.

The National Basketball Association has announced that the referees blew a foul call late in the Game 1 Playoff contest involving the Los Angeles Clippers-Golden State Warriors.

In the Warriors win on Saturday, the call would have given the LA Clippers a chance to tie the score.

The call involved Clippers point guard Chris Paul who lost the ball out of bounds with 18.9 seconds to go in the game. Golden State was leading 107-105  and eventually won 109-105.

the NBA’s president for basketball operations Rod Thorn said in a statement that Draymond Green of the Warriors should have been whistled for a foul, which Paul would have been given a chance to shoot two free throws.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is back on the court.

But not even Kobe Bryant could save his team from losing to the Toronto Raptors.

Amir Johnson scored a career-high 32 points in leading visiting Toronto to a 106-94 win to stop a five-game losing streak.

Bryant in his 18th season and the NBA’s fourth-leading scorer in history, had not played since rupturing his Achilles tendon in April against the Golden State Warriors.

He scored nine points, grabbed eight rebounds, dished out four assists ans turned the ball over eight times in 28 minutes of action.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have proven that they can win without second year All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.

But when they’re playing one of the NBA’s top echelon teams in the Los Angeles Clippers, his services were definitely missed.

The Cavaliers played for the third straight game without Irving and it showed in a 105-89 loss.

Jamal Crawford, Chris Paul, and Blake Griffin led the Clippers to their 43rd win of the season. They lead the NBA’s Pacific Division by 9 games over the surprising Golden State Warriors.

Prior to last night’s game, Los Angeles had not won a game in Cleveland dating back 10 losses in a row to 2002.

Crawford scored 24 points,  Paul dished out 15 assists and  Griffin scored 16 and pulled down 11 rebounds.

The Cavs were led by rookie Dion Waiters with 17 points.
