Steve Kerr said Steph Curry trade was ‘done,’ nearly ending Warriors dynasty.

NBA fans have a love-hate relationship with the Warriors dynasty, which almost never happened. 

And the guy responsible for turning it into such a well-oiled machine—head coach Steve Kerr—would have been held accountable.

Suns general manager at the time, Kerr, described how he tried to get Curry before the 2009 NBA draft and believed he had a deal "done."

"Steph caught our eye and we saw Steve Nash, the next generation. 

The night before the draft, we believed we had a deal when we attempted to trade for him, Kerr said on Showtime's Headliners with Rachel Nichols. "It was basically a phone conversation that we thought was finished, but it wasn't."

Our draft room erupted because we believed the transaction was finalized and Steph was going to be a Phoenix Sun when he slid to seven.

And it fell through; it didn't happen. Thus, that was a factor in my decision to accept the job offer from the Warriors.
