OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry received the NBA's community assist award, spoke passionately about his charitable works, then dished out another assist to his former coach.

In his first public comments since Mark Jackson was fired, Curry said Thursday that he disagreed with the decision. Curry said the "semi-quick hire" of Steve Kerr was "kind of a shock" to most players, calling it "a weird, expedited situation that we didn't see coming."

Curry had been the strongest supporter of Jackson before the Warriors dismissed the coach May 6 after a 51-win season and back-to-back playoff appearances. Golden State agreed to a five-year, $25 million deal with Kerr on May 14 and introduced him as coach May 20.

But Curry insists he hasn't lost faith in the franchise's commitment to winning.
