Steve Kerr would like Stephen Curry to win MVP this season, but he will not begin promoting him for the award.
"I care. I'd like for Steph to win the MVP, and I think he deserves it," Kerr said Thursday after practice.
"I don't think it's our job to promote it," and drew a distinction between the Warriors' approach and that of the Houston Rockets, who are heavily supporting James Harden's campaign.
"We're trying to win games. We've got a lot of work to do," Kerr said Thursday. "So, if Daryl Morey wants to run his own one-man campaign for James Harden, he can do that. That's fine. But we're focused on other stuff."
Curry and Harden are the two most likely MVP award recipients, according to the Bovada Sportsbook. Curry's odds are listed at 1-2, and Harden's are at 1-3.
"[Harden has] generated more wins than any player in the league by a huge margin," Morey told ESPN.com's Tom Haberstroh last weekend during the annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.
