Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich agree on at least one thing: President Donald Trump’s incompetence.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, echoing the comments of San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, harshly criticized President Donald Trump in an interview with Sports Illustrated. Chris Ballard of Sports Illustrated wrote about Kerr’s Warriors this week and shared a quote that didn’t make it into his final piece. Ballard asked Kerr about what it takes to be a good coach. Kerr went into philosophies briefly and talked about Bob Knight before switching gears, taking a shot at President Donald Trump by calling him a “blowhard” who “couldn’t be more ill-suited to be president.”

Kerr, who has not coached since Game 2 of the first round of the NBA playoffs while hampered by back issues, has previously spoken out against Trump — after he won the election in November and after Trump’s executive order for the initial travel ban.
Kerr is expected to travel with the Warriors to San Antonio for Games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference finals. Golden State leads the series, 2-0.
