Warriors Eyeing Steve Kerr As Next GM

New Golden State owner Joe Lacob wants to bring Kerr back out of the broadcaster’s booth. From FanHouse: “The former Phoenix president of basketball operations abruptly resigned in mid-June and is now a commentator for TNT, a development that, Lacob said on Monday, railroaded the plans of his Stanford graduate son, Kirk Lacob, to join the Suns’ staff during the summer. Kirk’s safety net came when Dear Old Dad beat out Larry Ellison to buy the Warriors and he was hired as Director of Basketball Operations for Golden State. The senior Lacob, the sources said, is enamored with Kerr and would be thrilled if he could convince him to head for the Bay Area.”

    I’m afraid the he’ll make moves to make the team boring in an effort to become a contender. I’ll settle for fun-to-watch and playoff contender. Leave Kerr in the booth.

    Why? So he can mess up whatever the Warriors have going for them, like he did the Suns?

    Big step back for an organization that looked like it was going the right way.

    last i checked, kerr did a decent job with the suns. the only thing he messed up on was shaq and terry porter. he recovered from that though. last season his team came pretty close to making the finals.
    unless i’m forgetting other things?

    The warriors could be happy if they had the Suns resume over the last years.

    Eh, Kerr wasted a couple of Nash’s prime years in Phx trying to wedge a square peg (Shaq) into a round hole. Did anyone except Kerr think Shaq was going to work with Nash/D’Antoni? You build around your franchise players talents…
