NEW YORK — The story disturbed Warriors coach Steve Kerr for so many reasons.
After China allowed three UCLA players, including LiAngelo Ball, to return to the United States after shoplifting Ball’s outspoken father, LaVar, declined to credit President Donald Trump for his role in the Chinese government releasing them. On Sunday, Trump then criticized LaVar Ball in a tweet before saying about the three UCLA players, “I should have left them in jail!”
“Modern life. Two people that are seeking attention, and they’re both getting it,” Kerr said. “I’m sure both guys are really happy.”
Kerr, who has frequently criticized Trump for his divisive rhetoric, was not happy though.
“You know what would help, if all of you guys just stopped covering both of them,” Kerr said. “Is that possible? You probably could stop covering LaVar. I don’t think you can stop covering the President. I don’t think that would work. But it’d be nice for all of us if both of them would be quiet. Wouldn’t that be great?”
