Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr’s wife let him know he’d forgotten something important. No, it wasn’t their wedding anniversary, but it was something just as significant and important in the life of Steve Kerr. Coach Kerr forgot to mention Steph Curry in his little speech at the parade. He mentioned pretty much everyone else and ended with Kevin Durant praise, but Steph didn’t get a shout. The Internet went wild of course — Curry is a free agent this year; bad time to start taking the two-time MVP for granted. That’s what Warriors fans thought.
Marcus Thompson II knows more than a bit about Curry and the Warriors. He’s a sports scribe in the Bay Area and wrote the book on Curry: Golden: The Miraculous Rise of Steph Curry. (see above) Thompson reports that Kerr was mortified by his oversight, saying if he’d had a chance to correct his error he’d say the whole winning Warriors culture revolves around Curry — “his talent, unselfishness and joy.” Curry, Kerr says, is “the person most responsible for what we’ve built.”
