Steve Kerr has won the Professional Basketball Writers Association's 2017-18 Rudy Tomjanovich Award, which honors an NBA coach for his cooperation with the media and fans, as well as his excellence on the court.
Kerr always seems to be lighthearted and patient with the media, so this award makes sense. The other finalists for the award were Steve Clifford of the Charlotte Hornets, Mike D’Antoni of the Houston Rockets, Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers and Brad Stevens of the Boston Celtics.

The Warriors may look to purchase a second round pick in the 2018 Draft.

The Warriors have made the most out of their previous second round picks in Jordan Bell and Patrick McCaw, and it's a great way for them to fill out their roster with cheap, young talent. "For us, it’s [players drafted] 20 to 40 or 20 to 50. Those are the players that are here to some extent," Warriors owner Joe Lacob said. "And that’s where we are — 28. Maybe we’ll buy a second-round pick again. I’m very aggressive with respective to those, as you know." We'd expect most teams to accept their calls except for the Bulls after they robbed them of Jordan Bell.

Coach Steve Kerr said he wants the Warriors to do a better job maintaining their composure.

Golden State has had a player ejected in three consecutive games (Kevin Durant twice and Shaun Livingston once). "We’re not composed out there. We’re a championship team," Kerr said. "We have to be poised and we have to execute out there. We’re getting way too emotional, myself included. I have to do a better job of that, too."

Steve Kerr expects to coach "all year" next season and "for many years to come."

"I’d love to say that I’m all better, but not the case. I’m feeling better, having a good summer, relaxing. But it’s just been an ongoing thing now for two years," said Kerr. "I fully expect to coach all year [next season]. That’s my expectation. And for many years to come." Severe headaches forced Kerr to the sidelines for the first half of the 2015-16 season, and he was again relegated to the sidelines for 11 games during the Dubs' 2017 playoff run, but it sounds like he's made enough progress so that this won't be an issue that requires him to take time off during the 2017-18 season.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Steve Kerr will be back to coach the 2017-18 season.

Kerr had to take a leave of absence from the team during the postseason due to nausea and migraines he was dealing with stemming from his back injury, but was able to coach the final four games of the Finals. He appeared to avoid any setbacks once he returned to the sidelines for Game 2. "There's no doubt in my mind that he will return as the coach of this team," said Myers. "I'm confident we'll have him back. Steve will be our coach."

Steve Kerr will return to the sidelines as the Warriors' head coach for Sunday's Game 2 against the Cavs.

Kerr still isn't 100 percent, but he's good enough to coach, and that's great news to hear. Mike Brown will resume his duties as associate head coach of the Warriors. "I'm coaching tonight," Kerr announced during his pregame presser. "The intention is to coach tonight and the rest of the series."

Warriors general manager Bob Myers said that Steve Kerr's availability will be evaluated on a daily basis.

On Friday, Kerr said he is feeling a bit better, and there is a possibility that he may return to the sidelines for Game 2. However, we may have to wait until Sunday to get a definitive answer. "I think we’re going to hear, ‘Steve might come back’ for the rest of the series. It’s an easy thing for someone to say. I could say that every day, and it could be true," said Myers. "It’s still status quo. We’re seeing how he feels and we’ll read that on a daily basis."

Steve Kerr (back) is feeling better and may coach in Game 2 vs. the Cavs on Sunday.

ESPN is reporting that if Kerr does not suffer any setbacks over the next few days, there is optimism he will return to the sidelines on Sunday night. Kerr was in pain on Wednesday, so Mike Brown coached the team in Game 1. However, general manager Bob Myers told ESPN on Thursday that the Warriors are "not closing the door on Kerr's return this series and will remain patient to allow him the necessary time to recover, even it happens to occur deep into the series."

Mike Brown will coach Game 1 for the Warriors on Thursday.

It's still possible Steve Kerr will coach Game 2 and he is at the arena for tonight. "I imagine I'm going to coach until Steve says he is ready," Brown said. Kerr has been at practice all week, so he should have plenty of impact on the plan for the rotation and strategy tonight.
Thu, Jun 1, 2017 07:52:00 PM

Coach Mike Brown said coach Steve Kerr hasn't told him whether he's coaching for Game 1.

"At the end of the day, this is his team," Brown said. "He's the head coach, and I'm just doing my job." As of Wednesday, it's still unlikely Kerr will be on the bench for Thursday. Kerr has still be involved at practice and is likely going to have a say on the rotation.

Steve Kerr made it clear during a recent interview that while he may not be able to coach during the Finals, he has zero intentions of walking away from his post as head coach of the Warriors.

"Hell yeah," Kerr responded when asked if at some point he'll resume his duties as head coach of the Warriors. "You know, it’s a little trickier, since this has been going on. I sort of assumed all last year that by the summer I’d get this thing knocked out. It’s been kind of a mystery and that’s what so frustrating. But I have every intention to coach for a long time." Kerr was able to run the past two Dubs' practices, so he is feeling better, but he's still not well enough to coach a game.

Steve Kerr said that he's still not feeling well enough to coach a game.

"I’m OK. I’m alright. I’m not well enough to coach a game," said Kerr. "I know that because I coached all 82 games and I felt OK. I’m comfortable, in a lot of pain, but I did fine. Then the first two games of the Portland series, whatever happened, things got worse. You saw me in the fourth quarter of Game 2. I could not sit still in my chair. There was that much pain. I would say I’ve gotten a little bit better." It looks like Mike Brown will be the lead coach on the sidelines for the Finals.

The Warriors have practiced the past three days, they will take off on Sunday, and then practice on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

They aren't taking too much time off excluding the Sunday, so they should be up to speed on preparation for the Cavs on Thursday. As of Saturday, coach Steve Kerr is still not ready to coach, but he is getting closer to a return.
Sat, May 27, 2017 05:17:00 PM

Steve Kerr is still not ready to return to the bench for the Warriors.

Due to his back injury, Kerr remains in a great deal of pain. "If he feels better and we have to make those decisions, we will, but right now we're not putting any deadlines on should he feel better what will we do," general manager Bob Myers said on Thursday. "It'll be based on what day it is, how exactly he feels, how long he's felt well." At this point, it's probably safe to assume Mike Brown will handle gameday coaching duties during the entirety of the Finals.

Steve Kerr is still in pain and unlikely to return to full-time coaching duties during the NBA Finals.

Unfortunately, the procedure Kerr underwent at the Duke Spine Center back on May 5th did not deliver the relief he had been hoping for. Kerr has been able to assist acting head coach Mike Brown by watching the games remotely and breaking down film, but obviously would prefer to be on the floor with his team. "I wish I could be out there with them," said Kerr. "And maybe I will. I don’t know. We’ll see."
