Athletic has a story about how Curry had the court reserved for shooting the night before. 8 pm. Paul got wind of it and went to the court himself. Curry offered to just stay on one half of the court

hey you guys remember that one time paul pierce said it was over and then bam cappy made the best thread title ever in the history of ever because i sure as hell do take that to the bank bromigos 

maybe if you post 15 to 20 times in a row it will help take that to the bank bromigo

Very poor finish to the half. Sixers with a chance to go up twenty and they proceed to turn it over 4 times in 2 mins and let them finish on a 7-0 run.

the turnovers were concerning, but i'm all for the first 5 minutes of the 3rd Q. that will let us know how this game and maybe series can look

He's also NOT made them the focal point like 95% of the games this year.  But hey, let's focus on the handful where he made a comment or had a complaint.

:lmao:

Whatever.  He's a hypocrite.

Apparently seven game series aren't decided after one game 🤔

Glad to see everybody in here so hyped for the Nuggets and Blazers.

This will be a sweep, maybe a gentleman's sweep with Portland getting one at home.  Denver has Portland's number.  

Why did this game start so late?

Because nobody cares about Denver and Portland?

Joker is a baaaaaaaaaaaad man.  Denver is loaded with no-name ballers who can play D.  CJ has been terrible tonight.

Keep your eyes closed on defense.

Mathematically?  Of course not.

Mentally?  It happens from time to time.  13 point home wins aren't as impactful as 22 point road wins.

After warriors losses in the playoffs so far, has he complained about the refs? 

Well, there were only two losses so far, so not a big sample size, but there was this:

1/2....you know, only 5% of the time, so he doesn't ever really do it.

Combine that with having been fined earlier this year for confronting refs and all the whining after the twolves loss, i think it is fair to call him a hypocrite fir complaining about people complaining about officiating.

But you know that must be my anti warriors bias.

I was responding to the guy who asked if he had complained about officials after losses during the playoffs, so yes, only 2 to work from.

Saying it is a small sample size is silly in the context of this discussion. It further illustrates how he very recently complained about the officiating. 

So when jayrod called him a hypocrite for his comments, jayrod was correct. You dont get to complain about the refs just over a week ago and then complain that people are talking about referees.

Sure you do.  Particularly since that wasn't Kerr's actual point.  It's pretty clear what Kerr is really saying which is basically "NBA, this is broken.   It's out of control overall - the perception of poor officiating, the constant whining, the constant gamesmanship where guys try to fall down to get calls (this includes Curry btw), and most importantly the reality that this distracts all of us from great basketball being played.   I'm a part of the problem too, but I can't solve this myself.  Please solve this so that we can all go back to watching and enjoying some amazing playoff basketball."

IMO that's his message.  Maybe he should say that very simply.  But hey, nobody is perfect.  He's going off the cuff in these interviews to a degree.

If he said that out loud, it wouldn't be hypocritical - it would be a plea for help.  Anyway, that's what I heard in his comments.

This is quite a stretch from a coach complaining about two specific calls/one specific player after one game. The only larger trend he even mentioned was refs being "partial to little guys."

Kerr and the Warriors whine a lot about the refs (and the Rockets whine far more). Someone asked if Kerr had complained to the refs after Warriors playoff losses this year, and it turned out that he had even though they've only lost twice in the playoffs this year.  That's kinda funny. Let's all just have a laugh about it and move on?
