(Steve) Kerr, whose name has been linked to the Knicks job since Phi Jackson was appointed team president last month, refused to comment on anything and everything related to coaching the Knicks — or any team, for that matter.
But you almost get the sense that Kerr, who played under both Jackson and Gregg Popovich, feels burned by the incessant speculation that he is set to replace Mike Woodson, whose job status is uncertain. Kerr, as loyal as they come, hates it when he hears coaches campaigning for jobs that are currently filled.
“I hope you understand, but I’m not talking about anything,” Kerr said prior to Game 1 of the Bulls-Wizards first-round series before walking away.

Bobby Portis Apologizes to Bulls for Mirotic Fight
Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
