Steve Kerr Teases Brown’s Viral Referee Rant with Playful Jest in Pre-Game Briefing

The head coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr, added a touch of humor to the pre-game press conference before Monday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Kerr playfully teased his former assistant, now the Sacramento Kings head coach, Mike Brown, well-known for his recent postgame antics involving a breakdown of events leading to his ejection in the Kings’ overtime loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Seated at the podium, Kerr jokingly said, “Raymond, could you bring the computer up here, please? I couldn’t resist. That was quite a show.” Laughter filled the room, highlighting the friendly banter between the coaches, now rivals in Northern California.

Brown’s ejection happened in the fourth quarter at Fiserv Forum, with a clash with Bucks guard Pat Connaughton sparking the incident while seeking an official’s attention. Kerr, who had worked with Brown for six seasons, offered a lighthearted take on Brown’s press conference theatrics.

Throughout the game, the Kings struggled with self-inflicted mistakes, allowing Bucks’ star guard Damian Lillard to secure a game-winning buzzer-beater. Despite the controversy around Brown’s ejection, the Kings’ on-court issues played a crucial role in their defeat.

Although Kerr and Brown now face each other as coaching rivals, their playful exchange highlights the enduring friendship formed during their time with the Warriors. Kerr’s good-natured teasing of Brown reflects the camaraderie extending beyond on-court competition.

It’s essential to mention that Kerr’s Warriors triumphed over Brown’s Kings in the playoffs last season. However, Kerr’s recent lighthearted comment suggests that, beneath the competitive nature of their coaching roles, there’s a mutual respect and fondness. Leading their respective teams, Kerr and Brown seize every chance for a light moment, even if it involves teasing and humor.
