Steve Kerr Fined $25,000

Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr has been fined $25,000 following the Golden State’s 129-107 loss to Portland. He is being disciplined for “verbally abusing and confronting” a referee after Draymond Green was called for yet another flagrant foul. Kerr was assessed two technical fouls and ejected for yelling and Gronk-spiking his clipboard.

When interviewed about the incident Kerr said, “We’ll obviously get an explanation from the league, but I just thought it was a good, hard foul. I guess I was wrong.”

Draymond Green has his own take on the situation. He thinks there is something called the “Draymond Rule” where he and only he is treated unfairly. Give me a break. Sure the dirtiest player in the NBA, behind Zaza Pa-cheapshot (creds: Skip Bayless), is being called for too many fouls.

Steve Kerr is normally a very even-tempered coach. He never has a reason to be upset since he is always winning. I am going to give him a pass on this one. He is allowed one freak out when his team is losing and on the verge of being dismantled this offseason. Probably just in survival mode.
