Steve Kerr's perfect response
I HAVE MIXED feelings about athletes who make social statements. On the one hand, maybe they should just shut up and play for the gazillions they've signed up for. On the other, they are Americans and they have rights to express opinions, too.
I stay away from the political fray most of the time. People who know me know what I think, and that's good enough. Everybody has opinions and beliefs and they have the right to vote for who they want.
But for all the idiotic things the guy in the Oval Office says and does, going after NBA coaches Steve Kerr and Greg Popovich is about the most baffling things ever. Both coaches were recently asked about the NBA's issues with China, and both decided it would be better to not publicly comment, at least not yet. That's something the guy in the Oval Office could never do, not comment.
Steve Kerr's reply to the guy in the Oval Office is classic. It's carefully thought out, gets to the point and it makes his attacker look like a fool. Then again, it's not hard to do that to our Twitter president.
Come after me, guy in the Oval Office! On second thought, I'm not famous and nobody cares what I think, so keep going after the bigger fish. I wish we could all be as eloquent when responding to presidential harassment.
