Steve Kerr appears to thank refs, waves at them after being ejected

Steve Kerr continues to be one of the most entertaining coaches in the NBA.

Fresh off a third title in four seasons, the now-fifth-year Golden State Warriors coach turned his ejection from Monday night’s preseason game against the Phoenix Suns into a funny moment. 

While arguing a foul against star Steph Curry early in the third quarter, Kerr received two quick technical fouls from the officials, prompting an automatic ejection. 

This did not appear to upset Kerr too much, though. 

Kerr appears to clearly say something along the lines of “I didn’t want to be here anyway” more than once, before bidding the refs farewell with a goodbye wave. 

The Suns went on to a 117-109 win.  

Afterwards, Kerr joked to reporters that he “wanted to be the first one to the buffet.” 

More seriously, Kerr – who was frustrated by the amount of illegal screens being called – said that he did go out on the court with the intention of being ejected.

“I was trying to make a point, I was trying to back up my guys” Kerr said. 

“We had all these offensive fouls, one after another … I finally had enough.”
