The Warriors head coach didn’t hold back when talking about Green’s role in Tuesday night’s on-court fight just before the Dubs’ game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday … explaining to reporters he didn’t find Green’s actions appropriate.
“He took it too far,” Kerr said. “Draymond was wrong. He knows that. It’s a bad look.”
The Warriors and Timberwolves got chippy just two minutes into their in-season tournament game 😳
Initially, Kerr seemed to have Green’s back following the brawl … saying Tuesday night he thought his player did what was needed to protect Klay Thompson. In some ways, Kerr stood by that stance a bit on Thursday, telling media members he “had no problem” with Green getting Gobert off Thompson … but “he’s got to let go.”
Steve Kerr on where “the line” is:
“The line is when you’re not gonna be there for the next five games for your teammates at a time when they need you… [the chokehold] is a bad look. He knows that and he’s embarrassed by that.” pic.twitter.com/xnD6JPUza9
