Video: Steve Kerr watched hopelessly as Festus Ezeli guarded Kyrie Irving
Steve Kerr is not one to hide his feelings or hold in his emotions on the sidelines as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors. He’s a master at seeing what’s going to happen on the court, often before it does, which is why he was such a good commentator for TNT before accepting the coaching position with the Dubs.
On this play, it didn’t take an expert to see that the Warriors were in trouble. After switching on a screen, Golden State big man Festus Ezeli found himself guarding one of the quickest players in the NBA, Kyrie Irving.
As Ezeli digs in, you can see Kerr in the background of the shot with his trademark frown going from ear to ear. Clearly, he wasn’t thrilled with the matchup and didn’t have much confidence that it would work out in Golden State’s favor.
