Former Warriors forward Richard Jefferson tried to get Golden State rookie Eric Paschall into some trouble.
How do we know that?
Because this hit Twitter on Tuesday afternoon:
He play too much 😂😂😂 https://t.co/6U9z15YB6B— Eric Paschall (@epaschall) March 31, 2020
Here's the transcript:
Jefferson: "Is Steve Kerr as annoying as he seems?"
Paschall: "What you mean?"
Jefferson: "He just seems really, really annoying."
Paschall: "Why you say that?"
Jefferson: "I've just never liked him. I played against him as a player -- in the NBA Finals when he was with the Spurs. Then he was the head coach of the Warriors -- and just to me, he seems super, super annoying."
Paschall: "I don't think he's annoying. I think he's a great dude."
Paschall: "(laughter) Yo, you're not gonna try to play this game with me (laughter)."
Jefferson (after erupting with laughter): "Steve Kerr -- he's an Arizona guy. That's my Wildcat brother. I was just messing with you (laughter)."
Paschall: "Yo, this man trying to get me to say something crazy (laughing). I ain't falling for the okie-doke (laughter)."
Jefferson: "It was a test and you passed!"
Just last week, Paschall explained why he loves playing for Kerr.
"He's very laid back. Knows the game. I think that he was a player himself helps out a lot because he understands what we are going through in every type of way.
"Having somebody like him as our coach is great, and I appreciate everything he's doing and done for me so far."
Kerr played at Arizona from 1983 to 1988 -- helping the Wildcats reach the Final Four his senior season.
Jefferson played at Arizona from 1998 to 2001 -- helping the Wildcats reach the national title game his junior season.
Lastly, here's a random Arizona tangent:
Andre Iguodala and Channing Frye were teammates at Arizona for two seasons. Iguodala shouldn’t have done this to a fellow Wildcat pic.twitter.com/uSn4vvDdV3— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) March 27, 2020
Sorry, Channing. Had to do it.
