Steve Kerr spoke to reporters after shootaround Wednesday morning. And as he saw guard Klay Thompson walking nearby, the Warriors coach busted out the jokes.
"Klay, we don't really need at all," Kerr said.
After Thompson responded with "redshirt season," Kerr seized the opportunity to roast the two-time All-NBA selection.
"We're redshirting him, trying to get him bigger and stronger. Get him used to campus life. Academically, he's got a ways to go ..."
Funny exchange between Kerr and Klay today after shootaround.

Klay is rehabbing his torn left ACL, and will be sidelined until at least the All-Star break.
It's possible that the five-time All-Star misses the whole season, hence the "redshirt" reference.
But the Warriors sure hope that doesn't become the reality and Klay is able to come back at the end of the regular season for a playoff push.
