LOS ANGELES – In emotional wake of a Game 7 loss to the Clippers on Saturday night, Warriors point guard Stephen Curry once again made one resoundingly clear:
He wants Mark Jackson to run training camp when the team gathers for 2014-15.
"I'm ready to come to training camp next year with coach Jackson at the helm," Curry said late Saturday night, after the Warriors' season ended with a 126-121 loss to Los Angeles.
Jackson's future has been and continues to be the hottest topic around the Warriors. CEO Joe Lacob, acutely aware of it, has silently allowed it to simmer for months.
But the vast majority of the players have made their feelings known, both with words and with actions. Their play against a superior Clippers team was tacit testimony on behalf of their coach.
Curry once again stood up for the cause.
"We're not the ones making decisions," he said. "We came into this season thinking this was a long-term situation. But, obviously, (Jackson has) been having to answer these questions all year."
Asked if he thought had played their final game under Jackson, Curry had a quick response.
"I don't think we have," he said. "I don't think most of the guys in the locker room do, as well. I'll just leave it at that."
