Steph Curry is struggling right now, but Steve Kerr isn’t concerned.
His head coach offered words of encouragement while mic’d up with the two-time MVP, who is in the midst of a tough shooting slump, during Sunday’s game against the Knicks.
These words of encouragement came in the first half of the Warriors’ matchup against the Knicks. Curry went just 4 of 13 from the field and 2 of 8 from beyond the arc in the first half. In his three previous games, he was a combined 3 for 31 from 3-point range.
This is obviously the type of coach and person Kerr, a two-time NBA Coach of the Year, is, and it’s no surprise that players love playing for him.
He’ll clearly stick by his players through bad times, even when they’re in a stretch that is this bad:
Better career 3-pt FG pct than Curry over his last four games: Ewing, Bogut, Drummond, Ben Wallace, Olajuwon, Yao, Mourning.
“Of course, because it was a very serious matter,” he said.
Teammate Manu Ginobili agreed, speaking for Aldridge’s Spurs teammates: “We were a little worried, a little concerned. That type of issue is not a hand, an ankle, a knee, something like that. It’s a pretty important organ.”
Aldridge described the episode last week in Oklahoma City as “just an off feeling” but didn’t want to discuss specifics about how the arrhythmia felt.
“It’s just a different feeling,” Aldridge said. “I know Orioles Cheap Jerseys my body Wholesale Jerseys Cheap well, and I’ve been through this before. I told the team and we did the protocol. I saw the right people, and I’m good to go. As we got into it more and more, I talked to more people about it. I was feeling more confident, because it definitely … it started off the opposite. I’m just thankful for the team acting so quickly, and I saw the right people.”
