    The Warriors are taking a risk with a guy who's never coached before. They are young and I think only a year or two off from being a championship contender. If Kerr flops, that whole timeline gets blown up
    It is a risk with Kerr just like it was for Jamie getting Fred to come to Iowa State. I think it was Hubie Brown when talking about Greg Popovich a couple years ago saying that he wasn't the best X' & O's coach but he was "brilliant" at managing and motivating personalities and having confidence with the right group of guys on the floor. Golden State is young and talented and I think Steve can do well but what the hell does that mean in the NBA these days unless your Doc Rivers or Greg Popovich.

    Re: Hoiberg at the top of Golden State's coaching wish list

    Tim Kawakami just reported that there were informal, testing the water discussions between Warriors and Hoiberg. My personal feel for this was Hoiberg expressing interest in eventually coaching in the NBA but still has unfinished business in Ames.

    Just like everyone else, I'm counting on that unfinished business. Its that darn Bulls job that scares me. Yesterday's article about Forman and the coach not speaking made me want to barf. But, I'll try to sleep well.

    I take it as Fred not slamming any doors but saying he isn't interested. Also didn't someone say his former agent works for GS? If so, he'd probably talk to him. Hopefully the trip to Napa included no visit....I don't want it to be that serious.I'm willing to bet EVERY team with an opening gauges Hus interest.

    Re: Hoiberg at the top of Golden State's coaching wish list

    This is what you say when you're not interested...

    “The only people who would ever say anything about the NBA are talk radio people. … There’s absolutely nothing there with me. People can make something out of (it) when there’s absolutely zero – less than zero – there. I guess you talk radio experts can squeeze in a lot of stuff to talk about in your three-hour window.”
    Bill Self, in an interview with Aaron Swarts, responding to rumors he might leave KU of the Oklahoma City NBA job, 810 AM

    Until Hoiberg says something publicly emphatic like this, I think he's absolutely listening and will leave this year or any other year. He's carefully worded his responses to the media to leave his options open. That much is clear.

    Self hasn't left, but coaches say these definitive things and leave anyway. Words don't mean much.

    Let me ask you this... if Hoiberg's name is at the end of that quote would you feel better? I think there's a pretty big divide between Hoiberg's and Self's comments. I do understand that coaches leave after saying they're happy, flattered, etc. You rarely see someone as direct as Self was in killing any rumor.

    Nope.
    I don't believe Fred is ever leaving for the NBA. I might be right, I might be wrong. I'm not going to join a pile of fanbases that heard comments like that and thought it was legit.

    I would say self is firmly entrenched, amirite?

    Re: Hoiberg at the top of Golden State's coaching wish list

    Fred Hoiberg talked with Warriors before they hired Steve Kerr

    The best sign yet that Fred Hoiberg will in fact coach Iowa State next season didn't come when he agreed to a new deal with his alma mater earlier this month because you know as well as I know that coaching agreements at the collegiate level rarely mean a thing.
    Honestly, I didn't pay much attention to that extension.
    So, no, that wasn't the best sign yet that Hoiberg is staying at ISU.
    The best sign yet came Friday morning when Tim Kawakami, the columnist from theMercury News, tweeted that an NBA source told him that Golden State actually spoke with Hoiberg about its vacancy before hiring Steve Kerr. To be clear, nobody is suggesting that Hoiberg rejected an offer, or that the talks were even substantive. But the talks did happen, and a source told CBSSports.com that those talks should be interpreted as further proof that Hoiberg is only going to make himself a real candidate for great NBA opportunities -- i.e., like inheriting a 51-win team led by Stephen Curry -- and the fact that Golden State has opened and closed means that's one less great NBA opportunity capable of luring Hoiberg away.
    Going forward, Hoiberg would take a call from the Lakers for the same reasons anybody would take a call from the Lakers, and if Indiana opens -- or if Kevin Durant decides to fire Scott Brooks in Oklahoma City for some reason -- then, obviously, those are also the types of situations that would intrigue any man. But short of a development in one of those areas, it appears that Iowa State fans can probably relax a little ... at least until next year.

    He could stay at Kansas as long as he wants provided that he keeps them in the upper tier of the sport. And the nice thing at Kansas is that he actually makes MORE money than most of these NBA jobs. Kerr just signed a 5 year, $25 million contract. Self Signed a 10 year $52.25 million contract after 2012, so he is making more per year than what a good NBA job just landed. And I guarantee that Self will get a bump up sometime before that contract ends. Most of the NBA jobs out there would be a pay decrease for Self.

    Fred is staying in Ames. We will always have the edge. If Fred wants more money, Pollard will continue to give him more money.

    Lots of variables...only Fred and his family truly know what he'll do. We can never match NBA $, but we can offer longevity and icon status.
