Steve Kerr calls out government in powerful message after Florida shooting

Steve Kerr calls out government in powerful message after Florida shooting

It's only February and another incredibly sad and scary shooting has taken place in the United States of America.

On Wednesday, at least 17 people were killed in a massive shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. Before the Warriors game against the Trail Blazers in Portland, head coach Steve Kerr was asked about his thoughts on the shooting. 

"Nothing has been done," Kerr said to reporters. "It doesn't seem to matter to our government that children are being shot to death day after day at schools. It doesn't matter that people are being shot at a concert, at a movie theater. It's not enough apparently to move our leadership, our government, the people who are running this country to actually do anything. That's demoralizing. 

"But we can do something about it. We can vote people in who actually have the courage to protect peoples' lives and not just bow down to the NRA because they financed their campaign for them. So, hopefully we'll find enough people first of all to vote good people in, but hopefully we can find enough people with courage to help our citizens remain safe and focus on the real safety issues, not build some wall for billions of dollars that has nothing to do with our safety, but actually protecting us from what truly is dangerous, which is maniacs with semi-automatic weapons and just slaughtering our children. It's disgusting." 

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph Curry lived up to his Splash Brother moniker on Sunday, and jumped into Lake Tahoe after losing a bet with his father, Dell Curry, at the American Century Championship.

The Splash Father bet the Splash Son he would trail by fewer than 20 points at the end of the tournament. The elder Curry had room to spare on Sunday, too, and was just 18 back of his son. 

The two-time MVP was a man of his word. 

 

Last year, the Currys made the same bet, and it was Dell Curry who had to purify himself in the waters of Lake Tahoe. He tied for 30th at the event this year, while Curry tied for 11th.

Move over, China Klay. Tahoe Steph is making a "triumphant" return of his own. 

Last summer, Warriors guard Steph Curry unsuccessfully tried dunking on a hoop on the course at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.

On Friday, the hoop made it 2-0. 

Would Golden State remain resounding favorites to three-peat as NBA champions if the team had to play every game in golf attire? Maybe that's how commissioner Adam Silver can achieve "parity of opportunity."
