The Golden State Warriors have been one of the best teams in the NBA over the past three seasons, going to the NBA Finals three times, and winning the NBA Championship two times during that period.

Under the leadership of head coach Steve Kerr, the Warriors have a superteam of Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green which nobody has been able to stop at the moment.

However, over the past two seasons, Golden State has adapted and learned how to survive without their head coach on the sidelines, as he has missed key games for the team due to ongoing back problems.

Kerr was absent for the first 43 games of the 2015-16 regular season, and he also missed another 11 games during the 2017 playoffs due to health-related issues. He continues to experience symptoms such as dizziness and headaches. related to the multiple back surgeries he underwent in 2015.

With these issues in mind, the Warriors head coach has a big decision to make, as he is entering year four of his five-year contract with the team, meaning a contract extension is likely to be just around the corner.

However, it's not a priority for Kerr as of right now, as he can't guarantee he will want to be with the team because of his health issues.

Kerr said Sunday, according to NBC Sports' Monte Poole: "I'm just not ready to look that far ahead.

"I know I enjoy coaching and that I want to keep coaching. But it's impossible to know if I'll be in the position to do so."

Warriors general manager Bob Myers also second Kerr's opinion, but he also can't visualize a future without Kerr as Golden State's head coach.

Myers said during the Warriors Insider Podcast: "It's not top of mind because I just can't envision him not being our coach. If something happened health-related, that's different. But if it's his option or our option to work something out, I'm really confident that it won't be an issue - for him or for us."

Kerr is 207-39 through three seasons with the Warriors, so he definitely deserves a contract extension, but whether or not he feels he will be healthy enough to accept it remains to be seen.
