Nah, these things are not rare birds in times of stress. Rip and CB are horrible at explanations and this is generally Tay's territory, if coherent thinking is needed. AI usually takes the drill-Sargent approach. I don't assume that Curry would have those two players on his side. Maybe he has none, except for (as you pointed out before) the singular one that counts. I also wouldn't assume any rock-steady player stability, although Stuckey is the one solid choice. He doesn't show much outside and it would be best for him to stay out of player politics. Unfortunately, you can't anoint leaders or grovel around to find the best combination when there is an obvious void. CB was it and the cupboard is now bare. This is where Curry steps up or gets help from the other coaches. This might not be his strong point and to be an outstanding (oh, all right, how about effective) coach, you need to figure this out rather quickly. Perhaps the best route might be to latch on to a known link: that being AI. See where it takes you. So far AI has been cautious (perhaps a little too cautious), but he is the only person to rally around. Besides, Stuckey is learning too much from him to break up this combination. This coach understanding his players is just media and PC chirping. Lose a few in a row (which eventually happens) and you can see the positioning starting to take place. Curry needs to start bringing some lineup stability to let this natural direction unfold. A forthcoming trade will not get you there any quicker.
