Warriors’ Steve Kerr jokes Mike Brown will protect him from Drake’s shoulder rub
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is not worried about Toronto Raptors global ambassador and super fan Drake. However, the 53-year-old coach is prepared in case the renowned rapper gives him the occasional shoulder rub.
DAMON: "If at any time Drake starts rubbing you, have you and Ron Adams already come up with a defense for that?"
STEVE: "Yeah Mike Brown is going to take him out."

Typical Kerr, to say the least. When he doesn’t respond with sarcasm and other witty remarks, he uses rumor.
Drake has made headlines these playoffs for his sideline antics during Raptors home games. While it was only taunting and trolling during the earlier rounds, the Canadian artist upped his game and provided animated reactions during Toronto’s Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks.
In fact, as one point in the East Finals, he came to Raptors head coach Nick Nurse to give him a shoulder rub.
The league has reportedly already talked to Drake about his antics. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, in an interview with Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, even spoke about it and said he believes the team’s ambassador now knows where to draw the line for his actions.
Still, despite all these, Kerr has a Plan B in Mike Brown should Drake be unable to control his emotions on the sidelines. After all, the Raptors have home-court advantage, which should make things a little more interesting.
