Steve Kerr reacts to Stephen Curry’s Q&A with Dr. Anthony Fauci on COVID-19
Dr. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House coronavirus task force. He spoke with Curry on Instagram Live about the coronavirus pandemic.
Kerr said he reached out to Warriors general manager Bob Myers and said, “Can you imagine having a better representative for our organization? Obviously, one of the greats of all time but just as a human being… Steph’s incredible.”
“I said to Bob [Myers], ‘Can you imagine having a better representative for our organization?’”

Curry told Dr. Fauci he got tested for COVID-19. The Warriors sharpshooter had the flu right before the NBA suspended the season after Utah Jazz All-Star center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus.
Steph, of course, tested negative. He was praised by Dr. Fauci on Thursday for getting tested.
The Warriors are indeed fortunate to have Curry as the face of the franchise. This is a guy who has done nothing wrong, both on or off the court.
Curry and the Dubs had the worst record in the league prior to play being suspended. It has been a terrible season for the Warriors, who were on their way to missing the playoffs for the first time since Kerr became coach.
Kerr replaced Mark Jackson after the 2013-14 season and led Golden State to three championships in five seasons.
However, the departure of Kevin Durant and the injuries to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson doomed the 2019-20 season for the Warriors. Curry broke his left hand in the fourth game of the season, while Thompson hasn’t played at all after tearing his ACL in Game 6 of the 2019 Finals.
