Stephen Curry over Golden State Warriors offseason drama

The Golden State Warriors had a fine 2013 season, but it wasn’t enough to save the job of former head coach Mark Jackson who was publicly supported by franchise player Stephen Curry in the days leading up to his ousting.

When the final hammer dropped and Jackson was removed from his position, Stephen Curry took it the hardest of all players (at least in regards to the media) as he expressed disappointment in the move. However, the All-Star has seemingly moved past the firing of Jackson and the offseason filled with drama as he told the Bay Area News Group.

“I’m able now to look forward to the upcoming year and what our team’s going to look like and our coaching staff as that becomes more concrete and understand what we have in the task in front of us,” Curry said.

In addition, Stephen Curry gave praise to new head coach Steve Kerr who has gone out of his way to make himself available to his players, even flying to Australia to meet with center Andrew Bogut.

“He has a plan,” Curry said. “Like I said, he’s done his homework. He knows what he wants as a coach. And he studied on the Spurs. He studied on the triangle offense and how to get different sets going, so I’m sure we’ll have kind of a hybrid of all those and lot of pick-and-roll and uptempo.”

Given the amount of dysfunction the Warriors were dealing with behind closed doors last season, the 2014-15 season will hopefully be far less dramatic.

    “the All-Star has seemingly moved past the firing of Jackson”. No he hasn’t and people shouldn’t try to use steph to make it seem like he or other guys on the team are fully behind the firing of their coach. Nor in support of kerr. Though nobody is going to come out and say otherwise at this point.

      I think steph didn’t mind seeing coach Jackson let go but he isn’t going to make it look that way cause of the respect he has for him as a person, but deep down he knows he wasn’t the greatest “coach” but really just a good motivator and good with the players, not good enough with the x’s and o’s this was the right move I watch all their games they lost around 5-10 games they just shouldn’t have, should of finished in 4th and got home court for playoffs
