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:

In all seriousness though -- great response, coach. Keep enjoying the family time and watching film on some of the top 2020 NBA Draft prospects.
