Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr didn't have much to say when asked about the ongoing NBA-China issues earlier this week, telling reporters that he simply didn't know what to make of it all.
“Actually I don’t,” Kerr said when asked if he has thoughts on the controversy. “It’s a really bizarre international story. A lot of us don’t know what to make of it. It’s something I’m reading about like everybody is, but I’m not gonna comment further.”
Kerr hasn't been shy about speaking on social and political issues, specifically his displeasure with President Trump, and he received some backlash for failing to support the pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. On Wednesday, Trump took a shot at Kerr, describing him as a "little boy" who was scared to answer any questions about the China controversy.
"I watched this guy Steve Kerr and he was like a little boy who was so scared to be even answering the question. He couldn't answer the question - he was shaking... He didn't know how to answer the question. And yet he'll talk about the United States very badly."
