Kerr watches Warriors' win from locker room

Kerr watches Warriors' win from locker room

Not looking completely comfortable yet, Kerr sat down and chatted with Brown for a long stint before disappearing into the weight room.

Kerr, 51, has not been on the bench since Game 2 of a first-round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers on April 19 because of recurring issues resulting from back surgery two years ago. It was reported last week that Kerr had a spinal cord leak procedure while at Duke. His downtime is to help us get prepared for the series and you know he misses being around the day-to-day routine, the atmosphere, practice and locker rooms and games and all that.

The Warriors (8-0) open the Western Conference Finals at home Sunday afternoon against San Antonio. With the Warriors trailing by more than 20 points, ABC aired footage of Kerr giving a halftime speech to his trailing team.

After the game, Stephen Curry acknowledged the importance of Kerr's presence and the value of his message at halftime.

Paul Ryan says he avoids looking at Twitter
Ryan said some people are seeing double-digit premium increases and said the new bill would lower premiums. During his stop earlier Friday at Badger High School in Lake Geneva, Ryan fielded questions from students.

"It's great any time you can hear his voice, see his face", Warriors guard Steph Curry said.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who talks to Kerr regularly, spoke Sunday about Kerr's recent health struggle.

"He looks good", Brown said. "I hope he's feeling better". "And just settle", Kerr told to his players.

With the Golden State down by 20 and playing poorly in Game 1 of the National Basketball Association playoffs Sunday, one could only wonder if the locker room talk at halftime would rattle the rafters.
