OAKLAND — It’s been a rough couple of years for Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. Since leading Golden State to an NBA Final’s victory in 2015, Kerr has struggled with complications from back surgery, missing a good chunk of last season, and the lion’s share of the 2017 postseason.
After it looked like he might not return to the sideline this season, winning his second NBA title in three years seemed to be a massive relief for Kerr, who camera’s caught crying after the victory.

That didn’t stop Kerr from being his sarcastic self when he was interviewed by Doris Burke shortly afterwards. Never change Steve. Glad to have you back.
