The Warriors Head Coach, Steve Kerr, is still in disbelief after the tragic shooting in Texas. After the match, he gave his comment: “I’m not going to talk about basketball. Nothing’s happened with our team in the last six hours.
We’re going to start the same way tonight. Any basketball questions don’t matter. ” Kerr said, as quoted by firstsportz. “Since we left shootaround, 14 children were killed 400 miles from here. And a teacher.
In the last 10 days, we’ve had elderly Black people killed in a supermarket in Buffalo, we’ve had Asian churchgoers killed in Southern California. Now we have children murdered at school”. Steve concluded.
Steph Curry gives a comment
Steph Curry supported his coach and it was not easy for him to go out on the field after such news.
“I appreciate his leadership. It was on everybody’s mind coming into the game. Just kind of hard to, you know, stay focused and going out playing basketball and knowing what happened in this state. I got kids, send them to school every day, drop them off and you feel for the parents that are going through what they’re going through” “I can’t even imagine the pain, so for coach to come out here and say what he said, and every word was powerful was meaningful, I accept that challenge of trying to figure out a way to use my voice again and platform to help hopefully make change and you can tell what it meant to him.“ Despite everything, they had to forget some things and dedicate themselves to sports for 2 and a half hours.
“Obviously, your mind wanders from time to time, but especially the moment of silence before the game and all of that, so it’s tough, but it reminds you how blessed we are to be able to do what we do and that we can’t get lost in the basketball game for two and a half hours, you know even though it is difficult, knowing what is going on in our country” Steph spoke with all seriousness, as he mentioned how difficult it was to play in Game 4 after the horrific events in Texas.
