    Golden State ship is sinking and possibly that Steve Kerr might leave Golden State after Curry retires.

    I say we welcome him to be the successor of Pop.

    Kerr has 9 rings (5 as players and 4 as head coach), including 2 with Spurs.

    I say he is more than qualified

    He's such a whining pussy. He makes Larry Brown look like Pop.

    Kerr might retire though, with his accolades and back problem he might either prefer front office, TNT or retirement over the head coach spot.

    Called this right after we won the lottery tbh. Could just be a rumor of course, but the timeline fits pretty perfectly. Kerr coaches Golden State for a couple more seasons until the Splash Brothers are completely washed and the Warriors go into full rebuild mode. Pop coaches a couple more years to set the table for Wemby and our young core. Then Kerr, a Pop disciple, slides right in and takes the reins from Pop. Almost makes too much sense not to happen tbh.

    Spurs are obviously very family oriented and will want Popís successor to be someone theyíre very familiar with and comfortable handing control of the team over to. Kerr fits that description. Not only is he a great friend of Popís, but he and RC Buford are close as well going back to the early 2000ís when Kerr was the old veteran on our 2003 Championship team. I think theyíd both be elated to have Kerr take over tbh. If heís interested that is. Time will tell. But it makes a ton of sense tbh. Hopefully if that happens he brings Curry with him.

    If Kerr comes, he has chance to be the winniest coach of all time

    Kerr is from California, quote: "the mean streets of Pacific Palisades". After being back at home all the years, I doubt he'd be interested in moving away despite the Spurs ties.

    I'd be absolutely shocked if Becky Hammon is not the next Spurs coach,,,,its just set up for that. Why would the Spurs hire her as the first female assistant in NBA history and then not follow through?,, Can you imagine she gets hired as the first female head coach ever in NBA history and then gets to coach Wemby and possibly win a le?

    Kerrs cheating *wins* are meaningless.

    Coach Spo already have 704 wins and he's only 52 years old compared to Kerr who has 473 and is already 57 years old. I think Spo will catch-up to Pop eventually or even take over.

    Spo is currently at 20th but given with his run with the Heat recently, I think he'll stick for a much longer time.
    * Rivers (61) is 9th but it seems his days are over as coach esp. if he don't win another one if another team signs him.
    ** McMillan (58) is 18th and not sure if another team will sign him again

    Spo has the best shot, but he's still far, far behind on win % (.642 -> .589), meaning he'll have to coach longer than Pop to overtake him. He's young, but he is just over halfway to the win total (1366 -> 704). Spo has also coached only one 50 win season since the Heatles broke up. He has a protector in Riley, but how long is Riley going to work?

    Pop's record may hold for a long time. Hard to compete with that sort of longevity as a head coach.

    Thanks. Edited it. Forgot Snyder take over him midseason.

    Spo has the best shot, but he's still far, far behind on win % (.642 -> .589), meaning he'll have to coach longer than Pop to overtake him. He's young, but he is just over halfway to the win total (1366 -> 704). Spo has also coached only one 50 win season since the Heatles broke up. He has a protector in Riley, but how long is Riley going to work?
    I can see Spo still coaching for a long time even if it's not with the Heat or Riley's help - I was about to say that Riley really like him but set aside, he's still a good modern coach considering with this run with the Heat. With Pop, do you think he'll give it to Kerr once Kerr is available?

    Was watching Ring of the Rowel, and Pop's praise of Kerr in 2003 makes me think it's possible.

    Kerr would be the best of the coaches with Spurs ties, in my opinion.

    I actually thought Borrego did a great job in Charlotte and wouldn't mind seeing him coach the Spurs. This "associate head coach" job he has with the Pelicans will be interesting, but I certainly see him getting another head coaching job in the near future.

    I donít know if Kerr wouldíve been half successful without Curry. Sure Pop always had Timmy, but still Pop adapted/modified the teams style of play as Timmy (the Big 3) got older, and continously complimented Timmy/Manu/TP with key role players, and even had the foresight to develop Kawhi as a franchise, All-NBA player. I donít see that with Kerr. And donít tell me Jordan Poole please. The guy is a Curry wanna-be with Jay Rís brain.

    The biggest concern for Kerr is we don't know what his offence would look like without Curry or Klay.
