Luke Walton, on the process:

"That's part of the message we give the team every year. Every year is completely different. There'll be new players next year. There'll be different coaches. Every year is uniquely special. You have to enjoy and embrace the journey of trying to do what we're doing instead of just constantly thinking about the end goal. Have fun with each other and embrace what a special time this is."

Steve Kerr, on ambition:

"All the guys I hire for the staff are cut from the same cloth. They're all unselfish and committed to the team but ambitious and hardworking. I think ambition can go two ways. You can be ambitious and be part of the team, or you can be ambitious for your own career. I like people who are ambitious for the team."

Bob Myers, on life:

"It’s competitive. It’s emotional. It’s cutthroat. It’s ruthless. If you care, you’re going to have moments your emotions get the best of you.

But give me all the guys who care too much."


The All-Star's relentless nature may sometimes come with a price, but his focus is pure: to push the Warriors to greatness.

George Karl, on shutting out the outside world:

" When you’re younger, I think you’re always a little more into what people are saying and what people are thinking. But as you get older, I think you learn you have no control over that. You can do your job perfectly. From the standpoint of the encyclopedia, you can do your job perfectly in this league, and if you don’t win and don’t fulfill expectations, you’re gonna be criticized. When you sign the contract, that’s the job you’re signing up for. I try to stay in my world. I love my world. My world is exciting to me, and this team is still exciting to me."
Karl says he met with GM Vlade Divac to discuss several issues

Tim Kawakami, on dysfunction:

"If you add up every miscalculation, week by week, by the dozens and maybe hundreds, you can see how the 49ers went from a berth in the NFC championship game to 5-11 in just two years."

* Straight from today’s Merc website (MY VERSION)/ All Jed York’s 49ers had to do was keep it together for one week–a week!–and Super Bowl 50 would’ve been a sweet success for them. Big party. Carolina vs. Denver on Sunday… Continue Reading →

Steve Kerr, on living in the moment:

"There’s no guarantee that any of us are going to be here tomorrow night. I hate to say that, but it’s true.

Guys get hurt, people get sick, things happen. One of our approaches as a team is to enjoy the process and to take joy out of what we’re doing – we’re among the luckiest people on earth."


(Photo courtesy the AP’s Janie McCauley.)OAKLAND–I didn’t expect this kind of emotion coming out of Steve Kerr’s Coach of the Year presser, and I’m not sure GM Bob Myers and Kerr expected it, either. But once Myers got the microphone… Continue Reading →

Ken Berger, on Kobe's motivation:

"It was simply the process of showing up and putting in the work -- a restless curiosity about what steps were needed, in what order, and at what time to produce a result he could live with."
Like he said he would, Kobe nailed the perfect last scene in the Kobe Bryant Saga.

Dan Lyons, on attracting recent college grads:

"How can you get hundreds of people to work in sales and marketing for the lowest possible wages? One way is to hire people who are right out of college and make work seem fun. You give them free beer and foosball tables. You decorate the place like a cross between a kindergarten and a frat house. You throw parties. Do that, and you can find an endless supply of bros who will toil away for $35,000 a year.

On top of the fun stuff you create a mythology that attempts to make the work seem meaningful. Supposedly millennials don’t care so much about money, but they’re very motivated by a sense of mission. So, you give them a mission. You tell your employees how special they are and how lucky they are to be here. You tell them that it’s harder to get a job here than to get into Harvard and that because of their superpowers they have been selected to work on a very important mission to change the world. You make a team logo. You give everyone a hat and a T-shirt. You make up a culture code and talk about creating a company that everyone can love."

Steve Strimling, PAC-12 referee:

"The only thing that stopped me in officiating was really me, my temper and my anger," Strimling said of his departure from college football from 1989 to 2000. "I was always flagging coaches and throwing people out. I got back into college because someone said, ‘Your talent is good enough, but you're an asshole. Get rid of that part and I'll help you.' So I changed my officiating, and it changed my home, it changed how I do stuff at work."
Steve Strimling says being gay has never stopped him from advancing as a football official. Now a white hat referee in the Pac-12, he wants to come out publicly to help others.

David Aldridge and Kyle Korver, on confidence:

DA: I still marvel how much confidence matters, even at this level.

KK: The mental side of sports, it's huge. It's such a massive part of the game. You can visualize and you can try to trick yourself into thinking a certain way. There's all kinds of things you can do to try to get in the right spot mentally. But at the end of the day. To have real confidence, you've got to be doing good at your craft. For me, mentally, it was like I was guessing all of the time or trying something new today. Trying to figure out something out in warmups, that's not a good head space to be in. It doesn't exactly give you a ton of confidence. For me, just feeling like I'm settled back into my mechanics, more than anything, that really helps with the mental side of things.

DA: Did Bud or the coaches do anything in particular --

KK: More than anything, it's not always what coaches do, it's what coaches don't do. A player senses when a coach loses confidence in him. That more than anything can throw a player. Moreso than anything, you think when people stick with you and have your back, and don't lose faith in you, and feel like the next one's going to go in, that probably does more for you than anything else.

DA: Do you sense that helps other guys on the team as well?

KK: One of the ultimate strengths of our coaching staff, and really the organization now, is that they're just a real positive vibe. You really feel like everyone's pulling for you and everyone's trying to help you get better. There's obviously constructive criticism, and we have film sessions and we try to hold each other accountable. We've got a really bunch of solid people kind of running the ship here, and it feels like people really have your back. With players, that really creates a healthy environment, where you don't just feel like pawns in the game.
