Warriors coach Steve Kerr picked up two technical fouls late in the second quarter Monday night in Sacramento and was ejected.
When discussing the incident Tuesday afternoon, Kerr shared a hilarious story from when Spurs coach Gregg Popovich got tossed just over a minute into San Antonio's game at Denver on April 3 last season.
"I'm following the game on my phone, it says 6-4 Denver, last play foul on Spurs, Popovich ejected," Kerr explained on KNBR 680. "And I go, 'Oh my god, he got ejected in 60 seconds. That's epic.' So I call him. I figure I'm gonna leave a message. I call him (and) he actually picked it up!
"I had a conversation with him just as he got into the locker room. He's like, 'Can you believe this? Can you believe these guys tossed me after one minute?' So (last night) I grabbed my phone just to see if by any chance Pop might give me a call (laughter), but he didn't."
So in the end, Popovich is just like the rest of us because he went straight to his cell phone. Do you think he has a burner account on Twitter?
As for Kerr -- he remained inside Golden 1 Center with the Warriors, and didn't catch a ride back to San Francisco early.
"I did stick around, (but) my sweats were on within probably five minutes of the ejection," he said. "The suit was gone, and I may or may not have had a cold beer in my hand at that point, too."
