Steph Curry recalls fighting ‘like hell’ to keep Mark Jackson as Warriors coach

And when he stops to reflect on it all, there are some things that stand out more than others — injuries, trades and even conversations.

But the Warriors fell short of an NBA Finals appearance both times, and in May 2014, Jackson was fired. The team was better than when he arrived, but the organization sought a coach who could propel them to the championship.

Of course, Kerr came in as the new Warriors coach for the 2014-15 season, and the rest is history.
