PBT Podcast: Steve Kerr to Warriors, Stan Van Gundy to Pistons

May 15, 2014, 8:43 AM EDT

Orlando's Stan Van Gundy shouts during an NBA playoff basketball game in Indianapolis Reuters

There has been some great, thrilling playoff basketball… but that’s not what everybody is talking about. And it’s not the first topic on the latest edition of the PBT Podcast.

Myself and Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio discuss the early dominoes falling in the coaching search game — Stan Van Gundy takes the money (and power) and runs to Detroit, so the Warriors turn their attention to Steve Kerr and land him. Where does that leave Phil Jackson and the Knicks?

Then we do get into some basketball — are we destined for another Heat vs. Spurs final? Did the devastating Game 5 loss end the hopes of the Clippers? We try to discuss the Pacers but does anyone have any idea how they will play next game? Didn’t think so.

    The body of your story says Kerr goes to the Warriors, so what’s next for the Knicks. But your title indicates Kerr to the Knicks, not the Warriors. Just a heads up.

      Don’t be to surprised… It’s the same guy who wrote he was tempted to pick the Nets in the Miami series but had to go with Miami in 7. Haha!! Slight miscalculation there as well.

    Steve Kerr is going to have his work cut out for him. Coaching two teams. What happens if the Warriors and Knicks make The Finals?

    There’s been a lot of errors on this site but that’s brutal

    This site needs a good copy editor.

    The mere fact that Phil Jackson himself won’t take the Knicks job is a major Red Flag for any Top Tier Candidate. They are hoping to have to settle for a lesser candidate who is hungry for a shot. This is a rebuilding operation plain and simple. This team won’t be competitive for another year or two. No front line candidate wants any part of that.
