There's trolling, and then there's what Warriors coach Steve Kerr did Monday afternoon.
Kerr opened his media availability with his best James Harden impersonation -- by flopping.

"Jeeze, that's a foul. That's a foul," Kerr joked. "That was on Ann [Killion]."

“I mean, I just want a fair chance, man,” Harden, who is known for flopping in hopes of drawing fouls, said after the loss.
On Monday, the NBA issued their Last Two Minute Report, which stated three non-calls favored the Warriors.
However, the report also said that there was a correct no-call that Harden complained about with 10 seconds left:
Harden (HOU) draws Green (GSW) into the air during his shot attempt. Green jumps in front of Harden and would have missed him if Harden hadn't extended his legs.
The officiating from Game 1 had everyone up in arms on Sunday. It's only been one game, and both sides are sure to have their eyes on the referees during Tuesday's Game 2.
