First things first. I am a fan of Steve Kerr and The Golden State Warriors. And second of all, if he wants to keep his nose out of The China I don’t blame him. China is a huge economic resource for The NBA and with The Warriors being in San Francisco they are one of the most popular teams in China. If you don’t know what’s going on with The NBA and China go ahead and just go visit a website called google and you’ll figure it out. But it’s hilarious that Steve Kerr has an opinion on everything but when it comes to money and the economic status of his team he has no opinion.

Remember this, from last year about the Great Social Justice (Golden State) Warrior?:
The coach of the NBA’s most powerful team will not stick to sports. Steve Kerr, whose Golden State Warriors are set to win their third NBA title in four years, has transformed from a master of unselfish offenses to an essential voice of reason in a world in which reason dies on cable news. “I think he’s got a fire burning,” the Warriors general manager, Bob Myers, told the Guardian in the run-up to Friday night’s Game 4 of the NBA finals. “It smolders in there. It lives in there. It’s there right now. I don’t know what he’s thinking right now but he’s thinking about something that he’s either read or heard that he didn’t like that he wants to speak on if asked about it.”
Chances are, Kerr will be asked. Chances are, Kerr will answer. No topic seems off limits. No question is too dangerous. … On the NFL’s new policy punishing players who silently protest against racial inequality during the national anthem: “It’s just typical of the NFL. They’re just playing to the fanbase. Basically just trying to use the anthem as fake patriotism, nationalism, scaring people. It’s idiotic.” …
Kerr stands out in a world where most sports coaches stay silent, either terrified of upsetting sponsors or fearful of upsetting team owners whose politics do not align with social change. His nearest NFL equivalent, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick (who has five championships), grunts rejections of political questions, tipping his ideological hand in laudatory letters to Trump. … “There is no hidden truth to Steve,” Myers said. “There’s no hidden agenda to Steve, it’s ‘I will say what I feel and speak my mind and I’m going to try and live in that manner and try to back it up.’” …
Today’s NBA has a fearlessness about social justice that petrifies the NFL. While football owners are bullied by Trump, anguished about the potential of upsetting their fans or frightening away advertisers, basketball players don’t seem shackled. This is especially true of Kerr and the Warriors.
So yeah. I am sure Steve Kerr has an opinion on China. He should have just went with a simple “What’s China? Never heard of them?”. It’s hilarious how fake all these social justice warriors are in the NBA. Where is Greg Popovich? Where is LeBron James? The guys who literally are ready to jump into any conversation and have opinions on everything this time have no opinion. Why? Well probably because this time it could affect their money.
