As people all over the world continue to practice social distancing because of the coronavirus pandemic, video conferencing has soared.
It's a great way to see people's faces and stay connected.
But that doesn't mean everybody is taking part.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr told the following story Thursday night during a radio appearance on KNBR 680:
"I got a text yesterday from (Sacramento Kings coach) Luke Walton. He said, 'Have you had any Zoom conference calls with your team?' And I said, 'No. Have you?' He goes, 'No. I'm hearing that other teams are doing that and I was feeling bad that we weren't.' And I said, 'You know what -- it's fake. It's fake hustle (laughter).'
"Picture this -- you're a player and this kind of suspension to a season is happening, do you really want to get on a Zoom conference call with your coach? No! No! It's the last thing you want. It's fake hustle. We're not doing any of that stuff."
Kerr isn't demanding daily 10:00 p.m. meetings where every Warriors player discusses what they did that day?!
It sounds like the eight-time NBA champion has more important things to do:
Steve Kerr said on KNBR yesterday he and his family have been watching a bunch of movies. "We had one stinker in the group. We're like 4-for-5 right now. We watched Blade Runner -- Harrison Ford from 1982. Not a fan. Not a fan."— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) April 3, 2020
In all seriousness though -- great response, coach. Keep enjoying the family time and watching film on some of the top 2020 NBA Draft prospects.
