The Warriors:

    The Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr defended NBA players’ decision to kneel during the national anthem. Steve Kerr explained why so many in the NBA have kneeled in a tweet published Friday. With NBA games now in full force, the inevitable race baiting ‘kneeling is a sign of disrespect!’ tweets are coming. Our message is clear: We love our country. And we also believe that this nation can and must do better to eliminate racism and bigotry. That is why we kneel. — Steve Kerr (@SteveKerr) July 31, 2020 “With NBA games now in full force, the inevitable race baiting ‘kneeling is a sign of disrespect!’ tweets are coming,” Kerr tweeted. “Our message is clear: We love...
    Golden State Warrios PG Steph Curry with coach Steve Kerr (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) The Golden State Warriors are in a rare position — a dynasty one year removed from greatness at the top of the NBA Draft lottery The Warriors have a tough decision to make. With the NBA Draft Lottery less than a month away (Aug. 25), Golden State’s selection is at peak value. The Warriors, Cavaliers and Timberwolves all have a 14 percent chance at landing the top pick. With that level of uncertainty, the Dubs are taking a significant gamble waiting on the results of a few ping pong balls to help make their decision for them. This year’s showcase lacks the clear-cut No....
    Klay Thompson conducted a Live session with his Anta fans in China on July 27, 2020. A lot of different topics were discussed, but the most intriguing one was about his most exciting game. He revealed the most memorable game of his career and opened up about the reasons behind it as well. Thompson’s throwback to Game 7 of WCF As bizarre as it sounds, the Warriors were very close to not making it to Game 7 of the WCF. They played against the Houston Rockets who were up by 17 points. It was Klay Thompson’s nine 3-pointers that carried them to victory. The first half of the game saw the Golden State Warriors struggling. Thompson already had 3 personals...
    DUBLIN, Calif. (KGO) -- In this edition of "Hey Larry, Call My Play!" Jordan Boreman Jr. played for the Junior Warriors, but shoots like the real Splash Brothers.This 3rd grader averaged 23 points a game, leading his Dublin team to a perfect, 10-0 record and to the league championship.RELATED:
    Some players achieve so much, only to be nitpicked and criticized by the fans. James Harden and Russell Westbrook, both are former MVPs, but they’re also two of the most hated players in the league. Another player belonging in this category is Stephen Curry. The first-ever unanimous MVP in NBA history is often disrespected, and has also been called a one-trick pony. On the JJ Redick podcast, Redick and ESPN’s Bomani Jones talked about this matter. Redick said, “You’re talking about a guy who’s okay defensively; he led the league in steals (in 2016). He averaged for his career, around five or six rebounds a game. He’s getting you six to seven assists a game. His MVP year: those are...
    Each week, Bay Area News Group will look at a new player the Warriors could target in October with their $17.2 million traded-player exception. Possibly the worst-kept secret in the NBA is the fact that the Warriors will add a center this offseason. Really, it’s not much of a secret. Head coach Steve Kerr has been quite candid about the need to add a center to a group that will return Marquese Chriss and Kevon Looney. “I’d be really comfortable going into the offseason knowing we have Marquese and Loon at that center spot, and probably adding a free agent,” Kerr said in February, a few weeks before the NBA season shut down. But even more enlightening was Kerr’s comments...
    Though they are currently buried deep in the luxury tax hell, the Golden State Warriors still have plenty of ways to improve their roster in the 2020 NBA offseason. Aside from using their future first-rounders to acquire their fourth superstar, the Warriors could also utilize the $17.2 million trade exception they created from trading Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies last summer to add a quality veteran that complements their core of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Draymond Green. One of the potential trade targets for the Warriors this fall is veteran forward Rudy Gay of the San Antonio Spurs. The idea of bringing Gay to Golden State was proposed by John Hollinger of The Athletic. Using the...
    Draymond Green is no stranger to beefing with former NBA legends. There is an ongoing squabble with Shaquille O’Neal, that never seems to end. However, the other quarrel, with Charles Barkley seems to have come to an end, for now. TNT’s new show “The Arena.” has both of them as panelists. In the first episode, they seem to have put an end to the fight. Co-host Cari Thompson asked Barkley to address the “Can Chuck and Draymond get along?” which is trending ever since the lineup for the show was announced. Barkley said, “I respect him. He’s a hell of a player. I’m just having fun on television. When you’re on from 8-2:30 in the morning, you’re just like I...
    Jonathan Scott Shares His Brilliant Way to Open a Wine Bottle Without a Corkscrew U.S. Cases Rise 1.3%; Florida to Speed Up Testing: Virus Update Is Stephen Curry the greatest Golden State Warrior of all time? Since being drafted seventh overall by the Golden State Warriors in 2009, Davidson star Stephen Curry took a few years to get going. But once he got going, he hasn’t stopped at all. © Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Short answer: Yes. The big picture: With presumably almost a decade left in his career, is it fair to say that Curry is the greatest Warrior of all time after what he’s done for the franchise?

    Frequent flyers no more... Getty Images It’s the well-known, but little-discussed, reality of a life in the financial markets: very little business actually takes place on Wall Street, or anywhere in New York for that matter. Even before coronavirus forced the world into an extended office hiatus, much of the financial services industry has been scattered around North America. Between visits to clients on their turf, conferences and marketing events in far-flung corners, and more, a career “on The Street” may just as easily have meant “on the road.” MarketWatch checked in with a few high-profile financial road warriors to see how they’ve handled having to hunker down, their overnight bags gathering dust. We asked what, if any,...

    When Washington’s NFL team announces its new name to replace “Redskins,” it doesn’t sound like it will get rid of the “Red.” “Redwolves” has emerged as the heavy odds-on favorite, with the Redtails a close second. The Redhawks are also strongly in the mix behind the “Warriors.” Although “Red” with something other than a racial slur against Native Americans seems like a good alternative, it’s not. First, the color part of the name was integral to making “Redskins” offensive. Second, staying with “Red” is a lazy, quick way to change the logo, helmets, uniforms and gear that will no doubt generate immediate huge merchandise revenue right in time for the 2020 NFL season. Let’s first knock down the bird and beast...
    Each week, Bay Area News Group will look at a new player the Warriors could target in October with their $17.2 million traded-player exception. The Warriors didn’t need a traditional backup point guard to make the last five NBA Finals, but they may need one to vault back into contention next season. After all, Stephen Curry is 32 years old and head coach Steve Kerr is already preparing for the two-time MVP to play fewer minutes as the Warriors try to maximize his championship window. “If anything, it’s on us to try to begin to manage (Curry’s) minutes,” Kerr told The Athletic last week. “We’ve always been really blessed. We’ve been able to do that because of the talent on...
    With the Washington Redskins retiring their team name and logo, here are some of the favorites as the franchise rebrands itself: Washington Warriors: A known favorite alternative for team owner Daniel Snyder, who once owned trademark rights to the name. But, with team names like the Blackhawks, Braves and Indians as the next under scrutiny, Warriors soon might be interpreted as derogatory. Washington RedTails: This would be a 180-degree turn from cultural insensitivity to honoring the Tuskegee Airmen, all-black fighter pilots who painted the backs of planes during World War II. RedTails won a prize in a fan-voted contest and has quarterback Dwayne Haskins’ vote. Washington Red Wolves: Star defensive lineman Jonathan Allen endorsed this option on social media,...

However, with crew names just like the Blackhawks, Braves and Indians as the subsequent beneath scrutiny, Warriors quickly is perhaps interpreted as derogatory.

    Washington Redskins, (Photo by Jacob Kupferman/Getty Images) One realtor in Alexandria might have screwed Washington out of a new team name. The Washington Redskins, as of this morning, are no more, as the long-expected retiring of the 87-year-old moniker with racist undertones has finally been made official. Puzzlingly, in a press release that still used the Redskins’ logos and letterhead, Dan Snyder, who famously said he would never change the name, did not confirm what the team formerly known as the Redskins will be called in 2020. The reason behind this might be down to trademark issues thanks to one genius realtor in Virginia. Philip Martin McAuley, a realtor in Alexandria, trademarked over a dozen potential names that the Redskins...
    UPDATE: Multiple reports on July 12 said the team will “retire” the Redskins name on July 13. It’s not known what the new name will be or when it will be announced. ORIGINAL STORY: The Washington Redskins announced Friday morning the team “will undergo a thorough review of the team’s name.” This comes a day after FedEx formally asked team owner Dan Snyder to change the name. FedEx is a primary sponsor of the team, and holds the naming rights to FedEx Field, where Washington plays. That same day, Nike removed all apparel from its website that included the word “Redskins.” Apparel from every other NFL team remained. “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition...
    Klay Thompson hasn’t played a single minute this season. During Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, the Golden State Warriors star tore his ACL and is still recovering. His recovery progress has impressed teammate Damion Lee, who himself had a similar injury a few years back. While speaking to Kerith Burke and Grant Liffmann on the ‘Runnin’ Plays’ podcast, Lee said, “[Klay and I have] had several conversations before about rehab in regards to the ACL. He’d always joke, ‘Damn, D-Lee. I don’t know how you did this twice because this is a lot.’ It’s cool to see what he’s been through and now wanting to come back and go all out.” Without Thompson,...
    Former Houston Rockets player Kenny Smith believed Draymond Green was an important part of the Golden State Warriors lineup. After reaching five consecutive NBA finals, the Warriors had a dismal 2019/20 season. They had won three of the last five seasons but were the first to get eliminated this season. Prior to the league’s suspension, the Warriors were at the bottom of the Western Conference with the worst record in the league. Talking on 95.7 The Game, Kenny Smith believed Green was important for the team to get back to winning ways. “There are certain guys you could throw in a pickup game, and they’re gonna look great. And there are certain guys — when they’re added to that pickup...
    Each week, Bay Area News Group will look at a new player the Warriors could target in October with their $17.2 million traded-player exception. It can be jarring to watch a replay of a dynastic Warriors game: The ball pinging around the court, experienced players passing up good shots for great ones, a defense connected. In other words, it doesn’t look much like the basketball played during this last 15-50 season. The Warriors are hoping to recreate that by surrounding their stars with versatile, high basketball IQ players. With that formula in mind, Grizzlies forward Justise Winslow is an intriguing target for the Warriors to acquire with their traded-player exception this offseason. The 24-year-old has dealt with...
    The Washington Redskins might soon be the Washington Warriors. The Redskins are currently in the process of reviewing the team’s name, and there’s almost certainly a 100% chance it gets changed. It sounds like Warriors is leading the pack. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) And here it is: the Redskins are undergoing a thorough review of the team’s name.

    Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley and Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (Photo by Cassy Athena/Getty Images) The Warriors’ dynasty might be dead, but Patrick Beverley still uses its ghost as motivation. Leave it to one of the true bulldogs of the NBA to reincarnate the Golden State Warriors dynasty — namely the Kevin Durant years — only as a means of achieving his own goals. Patrick Beverley is an eight-year vet in the Association, but he identifies with the old guard, using hard-nosed defensive tactics to get under his opponent’s skin. Against the Warriors, Bev would annoy Steph Curry and Klay Thompson like a gnat, and sometimes even take his turn against Kevin Durant on the perimeter. While...
    In a multi-part series, the Bay Area News Group will be discussing racial justice in America with former Warriors players from the last six decades. Jamaal Wilkes supports the police, up to a point. The former Golden State Warriors forward said he’s proud to be an American and wants law and order while at the same time seeing the need for change in the wake of demonstrations after the May 25 killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. “I’m not an activist. I’m not in the guts of the stuff, but we need some kind of reform with the police department (while) recognizing that the majority are good police,” Wilkes said in a recent conversation...

    The Washington Redskins could be sporting a new team name this fall, if and when the 2020 NFL season begins. Calls have been growing for the team to change its name in light of the recent protests against racial injustice and police brutality. Team owner Dan Snyder has resisted calls in the past to have the team name changed due to racist connotations, but the team announced on Friday that it would review the name. “In light of recent events around our country and feedback from our community, the Washington Redskins are announcing the team will undergo a thorough review of the team’s name,” the team said in a statement. “This review formalizes the initial discussions the team has been...

    The 2010s decade gave birth to a spectacular dynasty in the NBA. When Steve Kerr took over the Golden State Warriors in 2014, he magically transformed them into a championship-winning team. Fans of the Bay team enjoyed a refreshing a few years as their team became frequent entrants in the NBA finals.  Is it the management style of Steve Kerr or the combined brilliance of the stars present in the team? What made the Warriors so great that they astonishingly broke the fabled regular-season record set by the Chicago Bulls?  The team broke a plethora of records upon taking control of the league. But, they received a massive reality check in this season. Huge injury blows to the Splash Brothers...

Golden State will now head into the NBA offseason this coming October looking to get its star players healthy and make another run at the title. The team is also reportedly looking into one big-name player. According to Monte Poole of NBC Sports...
    While the majority of the NBA heads toward the “bubble” in Florida to finish out the regular season and play in the postseason, it appears that the Warriors will continue their tremendously long offseason. A summer training camp looks unlikely. Free agency won’t be until late October. No one can say when the next season will start. In fact, it appears that the next big event on the Warriors’ calendar will be the NBA Draft lottery in late August, followed by the draft in October, just before free agency opens. The Warriors, who had the worst record in the NBA, share the best odds for the No. 1 overall pick and are guaranteed a top-five section in that draft....
    New York — If someone is willing to cause fury and different reactions on social networks it is Maripily Rivera who, very removed from the pain, put on a tiny swimsuit that became a thong from behind and posed shamelessly from a balcony. For this he leaned his toned body on it and stopped the rear in a very suggestive way. “You are not what you achieve, you are what you overcome”It was the message with which the sexy Puerto Rican accompanied her image, understanding that she continues to give everything for everything on the program Warriors 2020, in which it is as a participant. Obviously, the reactions were immediate, and his faithful fans left hundreds of hot comments...
    (This story was originally published in 1993) The Warriors made a big, bold move in Wednesday’s draft to get the big, bold player who could make them an NBA title contender. In a stunning, last-minute maneuver, Coach Don Nelson traded the No. 3 pick, Memphis State guard Anfernee Hardaway, and three future first-round picks to Orlando for the rights to the No. 1 pick, 6-foot-9 Chris Webber, whose ferocious inside play led Michigan to the past two NCAA finals. Philadelphia took 7-6 Shawn Bradley of Brigham Young with the No. 2 pick. “I think we’re ready to challenge as a contender,” Nelson said. “I think we’ll be able to play with anybody next year, and I’m excited about it.”...
    (This story was originally published in 1995) OAKLAND — Joe Smith wears a tattoo of a snarling bulldog on his chest. Ask him what it represents and he’ll tell you it’s there because his college teammates call him “The Beast.” The Warriors certainly hope he can live up to that intimidating nickname after selecting the Maryland sophomore Wednesday with the first pick of the NBA draft. Smith, who doesn’t turn 20 until next month, will be asked to step in and fill the team’s biggest need a tough-minded, aggressive force in the low post. “If you like somebody who plays hard, you’re gonna love Joe Smith,” Warriors coach Rick Adelman told a crowd of 5,500 who gathered...
    Shaun Livingston was a key player as Curry’s substitute | Lachlan Cunningham / . The Golden State Warriors have dominated the Western Conference in recent years and with titles in 2015, 2017 and 2018 they have been the most recent dynasty in the best basketball in the world. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala have been the players who have received the most praise and with good reason. But there are other elements that often do not receive the recognition they deserve for their contribution to these championships. The first of them is Harrison Barnes, who was only in the 2015 championship but who was the starting forward in that season and did it in...
    (This story was originally published in 1989. Two months later, the Warriors acquired center Alton Lister from Seattle.) The Warriors dropped only one shoe Tuesday in the NBA college draft. The other shoe, Coach and General Manager Don Nelson indicated, will hit the floor a little more than a month from now when it’s really time for let’s make a deal. Going into the draft, the Warriors needed a powerful front-line player. They had the same need going out after using their first-round pick, the 14th overall, to take tiny Tim Hardaway, a 5-foot-11 point guard from Texas-El Paso. Before the NBA’s first prime-time draft began, the Warriors tried and failed to trade up with Indiana in...

Chris Murphy in the ongoing battle to reform the NCAA while also intensifying the fight for racial justice. The Warriors All-Star and the Connecticut Democratic, both of whom see an exploitative nature to college sports, co-authored an op-ed published on ESPN.com on Thursday.

The move Myers made reference to during his appearance on a 95.7 FM radio station program that recalled the day Golden State selected the skilled player in the 2009 draft.

    The Golden State Warriors season officially came to an end when the NBA announced only 22 teams will be participating in the return. The 2019-20 season will end with the Warriors having the worst record in the league. That will give them the tied highest odds for the 1st overall pick for the 2020 NBA Draft.   Despite just four months left for the draft, they still don’t have an obvious choice for the #1 pick. Since this draft class doesn’t look as strong as some of the previous seasons, the Warriors can afford to trade the pick. There are other rumors saying that if Warriors don’t land the first overall pick, they may look to trade the pick...

    The beginning of 2020 seemed to be a promising one for Andrew Wiggins. The #1 pick of the 2014 Draft was traded to the Golden State Warriors by the Minnesota Timberwolves in February. It was a much-needed move for the 25-year-old, who was struggling with the Timberwolves after becoming their number-one pick. Wiggins clearly did not relish playing for the Wolves, as the team never really enjoyed much success in the past few years. The beaming light of hope shone on his career when the Warriors bailed him out from the team.  Wiggins is certainly a great talent and he would ideally complement the likes of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

Here’s how it works: Every week, the Warriors will promote a different locally owned San Francisco or Oakland restaurant on their social media channels. The team and Uber Eats then will match the revenue of all meals that are ordered by fans using a special promotion code. Those matched monies go to the restaurants, who will use the proceeds to make meals for essential employees in the Bay Area. The first meal recipients include the Oakland Fire Department, AC Transit and the Bayview Hunters Point YMCA. Fans will need...

    (KPIX) — It’s been over 100 days and counting since the MLB, NBA, NHL, and NFL have played a live event. That draught is expected to end next month when at least two of the country’s four prominent leagues return like we’ve never seen before. Despite rising coronavirus case numbers in Florida, the NBA plans to resume its season on July 30 at the Disney World complex in Orlando. Players will enter the “bubble city” in just over two weeks, but some have reportedly expressed concern about Disney staff members that will be constantly entering and exiting the bubble. Last week, the league submitted a 113-page document to teams which outlined safety measures a procedures for the months-long experience. The...
    This season has been one to forget for the Golden State Warriors. After almost falling short of a three-peat in the previous season, they hit rock-bottom as they finished last in the Western Conference. Draymond Green was their only All-Star available for most of the season since Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were out with injuries. With all the responsibility on his shoulder, he struggled. “I think this year was really frustrating for him offensively,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said regarding Draymond on KNBR’s Tolbert, Kreuger, and Brooks Podcast. “And then as a competitor, it was frustrating for him just losing night after night. It’s just too difficult in this league to try to win games when you’re that shorthanded.”...

    DeMarcus Cousins ​​is in the sights of the Warriors | Matteo Marchi / . The Golden State Warriors will not participate in the resumption of the NBA season and are already thinking about the project of the next season, in which they will have their stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson back and will seek to fight again for the championship. One of the pieces they have in their sights is DeMarcus Cousins, who is recovering from his injury and listening to offers, including from the Los Angeles Lakers. NBA Rumors: Warriors May Consider Another DeMarcus Cousins ​​Experiment In 2020-21 Season #Basketball https://t.co/JzHNii0GvI – INQUISITR Sports (@InquisitrSports) June 20, 2020 “Cousins ​​is ready to compete again and after...
    Golden State Warriors star man, Stephen Curry has come to be known as a threat to opponents without the ball. Well, is that even possible? Curry’s current teammate, Eric Paschall says that he himself also gained learning from his moving game. Reggie Miller was one of those NBA players who excelled at speed and off-ball movement on the court. This generation has seen another like him, Stephen Curry. The Warriors rookie, Eric Paschall got to witness Steph’s game closely through the year. Due to injuries this season, the main players were mostly on the bench. But Eric had the opportunity to play alongside the 6 ft 3-inch talent for five games exactly. Stephen Curry holds the ability to dominate...
    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Sporting his No. 30 Stephen Curry jersey, 11-year-old Bjarki Robertsson kept up the pace. He hopped on his right foot, then his left, joining in a drill as part of the Golden State Warriors’ basketball camp. Like the 3-point shooting star he so admires, Robertsson certainly connected from long distance. He participated far from the San Francisco Bay Area — playing along from his father’s workplace, a small warehouse in Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik. The hoops-loving preteen had an advantage, too: His country has 24 hours of daylight right now, meaning he can attend camp and practice on his outdoor basket at home even with the seven-hour time difference. “It’s amazing,” Robertsson said after a...
    Some prominent liberals, including “Real Time” host Bill Maher, New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait and CNN’s Don Lemon, have at times argued that “woke Twitter” or “cancel culture” have gone too far in seeking political purity — and Matt Taibbi, a liberal journalist known for his in-depth reporting on systemic problems in the United States’ financial sector, made similar arguments in an article published on June 12. In recent days and weeks, many such arguments have been gaining traction in the political discourse. But Current Affairs Editor-in-Chief Nathan J. Robinson counters in a new piece that Taibbi and others are exaggerating the type of left-wing intolerance that they have complained about. “This is a thesis you may have heard before,” Robinson...
    Eventually, they came for Bon Appétit, as we always knew they would. Cancel culture is a game, the point of which is to impose unemployment on people as a form of recreation. The editor of Bon Appétit has gone down in a recent round that also claimed the editor of Variety, the editor of the New York Times opinion page, an obscure data analyst, and other figures far removed from public life. The classic canceling episode was the hounding of Roseanne Barr, a past-her-prime celebrity who tweeted a racially insensitive comment in 2018, comparing former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to a figure from “Planet of the Apes.” Celebrities in decline are an especially tempting target: Harvey Weinstein’s habits were not...

    What will going from first to worst get the Golden State Warriors? The prize could be Georgia shooting guard Anthony Edwards. The Warriors finished the coronavirus-shortened season with the NBA’s worst record and have a 14-percent chance at drawing the No. 1 pick in the draft lottery rescheduled for Aug. 25. The Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves also have a 14-percent chance based on the new lottery system to discourage tanking. If the ping-pong balls come up Warriors and they don’t trade the pick — as general manager Bob Myers said he is open to doing — the likely selection is Edwards, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. If the Warriors slip to No. 2-5 and Edwards is off the...
    Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr took aim at President Trump’s response to the George Floyd protests on Friday saying that he’s “drawing the battle lines for the election.” Kerr told NBC Sports that Trump has presented himself as the “law and order president” amid the recent protests and demonstrations that followed the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Minneapolis man who died on May 25 while in police custody. SAINTS PLAYERS PRAISE DREW BREES FOR RESPONSE TO TRUMP’S CRITICISM: ‘APOLOGY IS A FORM OF TRUE LEADERSHIP’  "Trump is drawing the battle lines for the election," Kerr said. "He's now just paving the way for, 'I'm the law and order president, and you've got to vote for me unless...
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — After reaching five straight NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors couldn’t have foreseen such a strange, disappointing season as they debuted their snazzy new Chase Center in San Francisco. The Warriors had the worst record in the NBA at 15-50 with a roster of largely unknowns taking the court night after night. Kevin Durant had departed. Klay Thompson sat out recovering from surgery for a torn left knee ligament sustained in Game 6 of last year’s finals against champion Toronto. Stephen Curry broke his left hand. Andrew Wiggins arrived and never got to showcase his star talent alongside the team’s top rotation before pro sports were halted because of the coronavirus pandemic. Steve Kerr’s coaching...

    Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr shared his praise for the “younger generation” amid the protests following the death of George Floyd, saying their example provides “the hope that we all need.” After a week of protests across the country, Kerr took to Twitter Tuesday to share his positive outlook.

    Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr has repeatedly been outspoken about President Trump, and on Monday, he made a sarcastic comment about Trump’s photo in front of St. John’s Church in Washington, D.C. Kerr tweeted the photo of Trump holding a Bible and wrote: “I feel so much better seeing him hold the Bible. Now I know he is a moral man driven by family values and a strict set of personal ethics. This changes everything.” MAVERICKS OWNER MARK CUBAN HAS MESSAGE FOR 'WHITE PEOPLE' IN WAKE OF GEORGE FLOYD'S DEATH Kerr also tweeted: “Not sure anyone out there needed confirmation that Trump holding a Bible was nothing more than a photo op and publicity stunt, but if you...
    Would Steve Kerr be a five-time NBA champion and eventually go on to be head coach for the Golden State Warriors today had Michael Jordan not come out of retirement and join him on the Chicago Bulls in 1995? He doesn’t think so. During an appearance on the NBC Sports’ podcast “Sports Uncovered,” Kerr opened up about how his experience playing with Jordan impacted the trajectory of his career. WARRIORS’ STEVE KERR ON MINNESOTA MAN’S POLICE-INVOLVED DEATH: ‘THIS IS MURDER’  "It completely changed the rest of my life. Playing with Michael Jordan changed the entire course of my career,” he said. Kerr signed with the Bulls in 1993 and despite failing to capture a ring that year, he was...
    If you’re one of the many people who scrubbed the memory of Michael Jordan as a Wizard from your mind, try imagining him wearing a Warriors jersey. Following Jordan’s first retirement, and one-season flirtation with minor league baseball, the Bulls legend was contemplating a basketball comeback during the 1994-95 season. But before he rejoined Scottie Pippen and Phil Jackson in Chicago, Jordan spent two days secretly working out with Golden State, as “a Warrior for 48 hours,” according to then-assistant coach Rod Higgins. “One morning, while Michael was visiting, he calls and asks me … ‘Do you think it’s OK if I practice with you guys?’” Higgins said on NBC Sports’ Sports Uncovered podcast. “And then I said, ‘I don’t...
