Steve Kerr’s NBA Finals Status ‘Up in the Air’

by May 30, 2017

Steve Kerr has yet to decide if he’ll be on the sidelines for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but admits that his status is up in the air for the Round 3 of the Cavs-Warriors championship battle.

Kerr, the reigning NBA Coach of the Year, is still recovering from a March 5 procedure to repair a spinal fluid leak stemming from back surgery complications nearly two years ago.

Mike Brown has been coaching the Dubs—12-0 this postseason—since Game 3 of the first-round playoff series at Portland.

Per the AP:

โ€œAs of right now I would not coach Thursday night. Itโ€™s still up in the air. Still waiting for โ€™Ahhhhhh!โ€™โ€ Kerr said, reaching his hands to the sky as if to receive some miracle healing. โ€œItโ€™s coming, itโ€™s coming. … I think once we get to Game 1, that might be a good time to make a decision one way or the other.โ€


He filled in addressing the media Monday when acting coach Mike Brown was out with the flu.


โ€œI told the team the good news is the team is really healthy, the bad news is the coaching staff is dropping like flies,โ€ Kerr joked.
