Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr absolutely flipped his lid late in Wednesday’s blowout loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Watch it here in all of its glory.
At issue for Kerr was a flagrant foul call against Warriors star Draymond Green in the fourth quarter. Kerr’s objective was to fire his team up while letting the officials in Portland know exactly how he felt about the call.
The NBA has responded accordingly — fining Kerr $25,000 for his tirade.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has been fined $25,000 by NBA for verbally abusing and confronting a game official Wednesday night in Portland.

This is no surprise. Much like Joel Embiid the day before, Kerr knew that his actions would lead to smaller checking account balance.
On that note, we’re pretty sure the $25,000 isn’t going to hurt the three-time champion coach as he relaxes during the NBA All-Star Break.
