Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr had a lot to say about travelling after the Dubs defeated the Toronto Raptors 127-121 last week.

The 2016 Coach of the Year appeared on KNBR 680 radio and really, he should have known criticising the league in any kind of way would hurt his pockets.

On Sunday, the NBA announced that Kerr has been fined $25,000 for public criticism of officiating during a radio interview on Thursday.

It seemed to be a build-up of frustration for Kerr who insists players are getting away with travelling game in, game out.

"Speaking of which, did you enjoy the DeMar DeRozan foray to the rim last night?" Kerr asked. "How is it that everybody on earth can see these traveling violations except for the three people that we pay to do the job? I don't get it. It's bizarre. ... But I can literally put together a blooper reel of plays that are embarrassing travels that are just not called."

Kerr certainly has a point, and during the game he mentions, DeRozan certainly takes four steps to the basket in one play and the refs do not call it.

However, maybe he'll think before he voices his frustrations in this manner in the future.
