Warriors Coach Steve Kerr Thinks Celtics Fans Crossed the Line With Draymond Green

In the latest episode of “point ahead” Podcast, Steve Kerr joined Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala to offer his thoughts on the interactions between Celtics fans and Draymond Green during the recently concluded NBA Finals. Kerr was particularly disturbed by the “F-You Draymond” chants, going so far as to say it might have upset Draymond a bit, especially with his young son in the building to witness.

Here is the full quote:

“I thought they crossed the line. I’m all for booing guys, cheering for your own team. The appropriate cheer if you want to go that route is “so-and-so sucks, so-and-so sucks.” You don’t say that, when they said “F-You Draymond” like twenty thousand people, I thought of Draymond’s kid. Five years old, sweet kid, like the nicest kid. I mean every time he sees me he says ‘Hi Coach Kerr!’ He’s the greatest little dude, he comes to practice all the time, a sweet and innocent little dude, and he has to sit and watch his dad be scolded by twenty thousand drunk fans. You know people don’t think about it that way when you’re watching from the outside and I think it shook Draymond a little.

“point ahead” is a “Ball, Business and Culture” podcast featuring former NBA player Evan Turner and current NBA veteran Andre Iguodala. Iguodala is notably a member of the NBA champions Golden State Warriors, giving him a unique perspective on the Draymond Green incident referred to by coach Steve Kerr. The Warriors are also among the betting favorites for next year’s NBA championship, with opening odds in the top division of teams alongside the Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets.
