Stephen Curry still sounds like a man in a quandary.

Two weeks after Steve Kerr was hired to replace Curry's beloved head coach Mark Jackson, the Warriors' point guard spoke openly Thursday about his emotions regarding the coaching swap and the direction of the franchise.

"It's tough," Curry said after accepting the Kia Community Assist Seasonlong Award for his numerous charitable contributions. "That relationship (with Jackson) will never stop. He did a lot for me as a player and as a person. It's emotional, for sure - seeing that coming to an end - (because of) who he was as a person to me and our relationship and communication. Also, he was a sign of stability to me. I had three coaches in (my first) three years, and he embodies what I know is good around here with the Warriors: winning and that kind of feel. I love coach (Keith) Smart and coach (Don) Nelson, but (Jackson) embodied winning for me. It's tough to see that end.
