Really good Sports Illustrated piece about the way Steve Kerr and the rest of the Golden State coaching staff approached their coaching of Stephen Curry. Some terrific insights into what it takes to coach the highly-talented.
“We try to approach coaching with the idea that I’m going to present myself totally openly and honestly and communicate with everybody,” Kerr said. “We have a group of guys that’s pretty easy to coach so it really hasn’t been much of an issue. But I do think because Steph is the best player, the rest of the guys follow his lead. The fact that he lets me get on him in film sessions, criticize him, and urge him to get better allows other guys to understand that they have to accept the same things.”
