Steve Kerr fires a shot at Gregg Popovich and the Spurs

Published Add your comment

The Golden State Warriors are still celebrating winning the NBA Championship this year and with head coach Steve Kerr winning it in his first season with the team, expectations are high.

Kerr led the Warriors to the title this year after they beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals in a very memorable series.

Already looking ahead

However not content to linger on their previous accomplishments, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has been looking forward to next season and has discussed the fortunes of one team.

The San Antonio Spurs made the headlines recently as they signed one of the hottest free agents in the NBA in LaMarcus Aldridge.

The Spurs signed the former Portland Trail Blazers star and beat out several other teams to his signature.

When asked about the deal however, the Warriors head coach not only set the expectations high for the Spurs next year, but he made a very definite statement.

"You look at what San Antonio did getting Aldridge, I mean if they don’t win the whole thing next year it’s clearly the coach’s fault.” - Kerr on the Spurs signing Aldridge

Kerr being his usual jokey self has clearly shown how high he expects the Spurs to fly next season but he continued by launching an attack on one man in particular.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich last lead the team to the NBA Title in 2014 and according to Kerr, has to do it again next year.

"I mean if Pop can’t win the whole thing with that roster then he has no business coaching in this league.”

Some big words from Kerr, and surely now everyone will wait to see what Coach Pop responds with.

Either way, the battle between San Antonio and Golden State in the Western Conference next season just got a lot more interesting.
