Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr isn’t pleased with how much attention the media is giving LaVar Ball and President Donald Trump.
Trump and Ball have been engaged in an ongoing feud over the President’s role in getting LiAngelo Ball out of Chinese custody for shoplifting.
It really got amped up when Trump tweeted that he should just have left them in jail.
Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!

Kerr addressed the situation with the media Sunday afternoon and stated, “Two people seeking attention and they’re both getting it. I’m sure both guys are really happy. You know what would help? If all of you just stopped covering both of them. Is that possible? You could probably stop covering LaVar. I don’t think you could stop covering the president. I don’t think that would work. It would be nice for all of us if both of them would just be quiet. That’d be great.”

Now we’ll all have to wait and see if Trump fires back at Kerr or if he’ll let this one pass.
