Darting here and there . . .

-- Perspective Is Everything Dept.: Bruce Bochy, who has managed more than 3,000 games, won two World Series and has to be on the job roughly twice as often as an NBA coach, is suddenly making less than Warriors coaching virgin Steve Kerr.

-- Five years for $25 million sound familiar? Yes, that's what Jim Harbaugh originally signed for with the 49ers, and that turned out OK, eh?

-- Todd McLellan? Hey, no money grudges. Just tickled to still be around.

-- It had to be tough enough on Mark Jackson to get fired after 51 wins, but a knockdown shooter is going to make 21/2 times as much per year as he did. Ouch.

-- You'd think for all the money they spent on Kerr, the Warriors could have found an affordable, workable flak jacket for Andrew Bogut.

-- One thing about bringing Kerr aboard, you know the Warriors won't be scaling back on shooting threes.

-- Aside from Marcus Thompson's chat with Stephen Curry, the silence among Warriors players about the Kerr hire is deafening.

-- First thing we do as Warriors coach if we're Kerr: Tell Bob Myers to build us a better bench. And we don't mean the kind you sit on.

-- If Donald Sterling were smart, he would be pointing out how many of his fellow NBA owners have fired black head coaches in the past two years and replaced them with white ones.

-- It would be funny if it wasn't so true: Sterling's legal team is likely to hang longer and tougher than his Clippers basketball team did.

-- Justice League of America: The flop-specialist Clippers went down in the fourth quarter of Game 6 partly as a result of charging calls on Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. Shaky ones at that.

-- Think Bogut's absence wasn't a big factor? DeAndre Jordan had 28 blocks against the Warriors, just five against the Thunder. And single-digit scoring in five of six games.

-- Pretty nice series for Mr. Unreliable, Kevin Durant. We still can't get over that OKC headline.

-- Can we just start the Heat-Spurs rematch now and save two weeks of inevitability?

-- The new Six Million Dollar Man: the Giants' Michael Morse, whose 10 homers and 28 RBIs through Thursday reflect money very well spent so far.

-- Watch Morse closely at the plate. He absolutely has no bat waggle. He doesn't even take a practice swing. It's eerie, particularly after Hunter Pence's more hyperactive approach.

-- As for Pence, his hitting in the No. 2 spot seems illogical, but entering Friday, he had 31 runs scored, tied for fifth most in the majors. And you know Bochy won't fix it if it ain't broke.

-- It has worked so well for Josh Reddick, the A's should start playing "Careless Whisper" when their relief pitchers warm up. Or maybe "You Light Up My Life."

-- We're learning the hard way why Luke Gregerson wasn't a closer in San Diego. Of the A's eight blown saves, he has five of them, and all have wound up as losses. Ugh.

-- Meanwhile, Grant Balfour in Tampa Bay: 6.46 ERA. Out-rage-ous.

-- Then there's Brian Wilson in L.A.: 10.22 ERA. Might be time for a shave.

-- And Bartolo Colon in New York as well: 2-5, 5.84. Guess all that hitting is taking it out of him.

-- The A's acquired Kyle Blanks to replace the guy who once again was firing blanks, Daric Barton.

-- It's hard to believe, even with their outstanding linebacking corps, that undrafted Stanford free agent Shayne Skov won't be on the 49ers' roster next year and maybe years to come. Forget the measurables. Player, plain and simple.

-- Also very cool that running back George Atkinson III will get a crack with the Silver and Black.

-- Finally, Mel Kiper loved the draft of both the 49ers and Raiders. Should we be worried?
