The road to a three-peat rarely goes smoothly. Champions are either bored or lack motivation during the regular season. For a coach, the act can wear thin. As was the case Sunday night when Steve Kerr appeared to say “I’m so f***king sick of Draymond.”
Kerr declined to comment after the game, but on Monday he was willing to spar with the press. “The lip-readers were wrong,” Kerr said. “What I said was, ‘I beg to differ with Draymond’s approach.'”
He also joked that he’d start covering his mouth on the sideline. “I’ve decided I’m going to get a giant laminated board, turn into an NFL coach.”
The road to nearly unprecedented success is a bumpy one. Kerr and Draymond will find a way to patch things up. After all, it could be worse.
