Donald Trump's surprise election win has rocked the United States of America to its core. 

The billionaire businessman overcame Hillary Clinton yesterday, winning the electoral college despite losing the popular vote, and many Americans are far from happy with what the future holds for their nation. 

Detroit Pistons coach Steve van Gundy was the first NBA head coach to speak out about the result, and he certainly didn't hold back. And now Steve Kerr has had his say. 

The Golden State Warriors head coach said: “For me, probably the biggest disappointment with his whole election was the level of discourse. There should be some level of decorum and respect and dignity that goes with the election of the presidency.”

The former Chicago Bulls players said it was 'tough' to see his wife, daughter and team in their current state of mind. 

“It’s tough when you want there to be some respect and dignity and there hasn’t been any and then you walk into a room with your daughter and your wife, who’ve basically been insulted by his comments, and they’re distraught. 

“And you walk in and you see the faces of your players, most of them who have been insulted directly as minorities, it’s sort of shocking. It really is. We talked about it as a team this morning. I don’t know what else to say.”

However, he ended the speech on a positive note by wishing Trump well. 

"I wish him well. I hope he’s a good president,” Kerr said. “I have no idea what kind of president he’ll be because he hasn’t said anything about what he’s going to do. We don’t know.”
