Steve Kerr is a self-absorbed Phil Jackson type. All about Kerr and nothing else.

KD *did* thrive in the Warriors system which makes his decision all the more baffling if you believed what KD said about his motives.

Not sure why Kerr is to blame here for not "cultivating" a better relationship. Relationships are two-way streets, and it seems pretty clear that KD is impossible to please.

My nephew Steph Curry#30 is so over this. KD moved on so why give this anymore energy. ManyBlessings KD and the Warriors are moving forward.

Idiots...KD joined the Warriors to get Rings, for himself that is and not for Curry nor Draymond etc etc. He wouldnt have any if he didnt have Curry, Klay et al though. Didnt want to be this era's Barkley, Malone, Ewing, and a whole bunch of other HOFs

Why compare Mark Jackson to Steve Kerr because of that KD clown? KD cheated, cut the biggest corner and now he's not happy. Let that be a lesson. Him and Kyrie are going to be a mess.

I used to think KD got a raw deal from the media and was unfairly being called out all the time but I was wrong... He’s the type of guy who would complain constantly no matter what situation he’s in.

SAS, KD didn't tell you anything personally stop lying. Sometimes you are worse off than Max when you talk about KD or an athlete you like. You lot make drama from everything, it's the business anyways and you get paid millions for that.

I didnt know much about kd's personality too much when he was in OKC ...but I heard about him and I ALWAYS liked and wished kd never went to Oakland. They didnt need him, they were fine without him and look now. Hopefully gsw wont have to go into a massive rebuild over the next couple of years.

Of course he didn't like Kerr. KD is a spoiled little baby and Kerr actually yells at his players. This dude will never win anything ever again, and never would have won anything in the first place if he didn't join Steph's team. I'm also befuddled when people act like the Warriors even wanted to keep KD. Literally no athlete in the history of professional sports has ever been great again after tearing their Achilles. If they're lucky, they get back to being somewhat productive. Kobe couldn't do it, and Kobe is the second or third greatest player of all time. Gordon Hayward has now spent 2 years looking like less than even a shell of his former self. So what's the upside with KD? Maybe by 2022 he'll be able to average 15 points a game again? Sounds to me like the Nets have, yet again, crippled their franchise with a terrible signing.

Steve Kerr: Who is the basketball player and coach who only one because he had the best players around him or being coached by him

KD is a big baby, always over emotional and throwing tantrums. He will never feel at home anywhere and will keep searching for only God knows what till his career is over. He claims to be a seeker, but there are more downsides to that lifestyle than there are upsides.

What’s going on here? Am I suppose to feel bad for KD? If you didn’t feel like you were on the team give the rings back. If Not FOH

KD didn't feel at home. KD didn't like Steve Kerr's Offence. Blah! Blah! Blah! Oh, please! What did KD want Kerr to be like one of his fans, worshiping his every move. Kerr is a 5 X NBA Champion as a player and a 3 X NBA Champion as a coach. He has played with the person considered the greatest player in the history of the game, Michael Jordan. He has coached a player who using his system became one of only nine 2 X back to back NBA season MPV's and the only unanimous one ever , Steph Curry. Kerr's offence has given him the best season win record in history of the NBA and given KD 2 championships which eluded him for years in less than 3 years. With these stats the problem looks like it's KD's nor Steve Kerr or his offence. KD has a lot of growing up to do. I'm sure playing in NY will wake him up!

I don't believe anything ESPN says or these NBA players that love the system and involved with that MK Ultra stuff KD is not with that satanic lifestyle I have no issue with that at all and if people don't think the NBA and this demonic system does not go hand and hand then they are straight-up naive and remember Kevin Durant got baptized as an Israelite his mind and purpose has been opened but of course most people on this post don't even understand anything like that they just think it's all about sports and nothing else should matter bunch of sheep blindless sheep at that

Kevin wants to be the Alpha Dog but does not have an Alpha Dog persona. Westbrook was OKC's Alpha, Steph Curry is the GSW's Alpha. Will he get to be the Alpha in Brooklyn? I hope for Kevin, but it won't happen until he steps into it.

If you can't jive with Steve Kerr, that is on you KD. By career's end you will be unsatisfied and feeling disrespected no matter what.
