Stephen Curry had three coaches and 145 losses in his first three seasons with the Golden State Warriors.
Curry now has his fourth in Steve Kerr.
“It’s difficult, but it’s good to know what the next direction is,” said Curry, who hasn’t spoken publicly since Jackson was fired. “It’s still kind of stressful knowing how it all went down.”
Curry received a call from Kerr before news of the agreement broke and they plan on talking again soon.
“I just want to see him build that relationship with the players,” Curry said. “To be able to get the most out of us. To challenge us. Pushing us to a higher level. And I don’t think he’ll have a problem with that. We’re in good hands. I’m not worried about that. He just has to develop his coaching style. I agree with the decision (to hire Kerr).”
Curry understands the reasons for Jackson's firing even if the falling out was surreal.
“I’ve heard it wasn’t as good as it seems,” Curry said. “But that’s so far from my perception of coach and the reality I dealt with every day. From my dealings with him, I just don’t see him that way.
“I heard a lot of different explanations and reasons. I heard the positions on why management and the front office wanted to make a change. I can’t say I agree with all of them, but I know what they were thinking and I understand where they are coming from.”
