Kerr on the Rockets: ‘I don’t wake up in the morning thinking about them’

OAKLAND — In the wake of Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey telling ESPN Radio that his club is “obsessed” with toppling the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr replied with some of his famous dry humor.

“Oh they’ve been great,” Kerr said. “I thought they made some really good offseason additions. They’re better defensively and, obviously, Chris Paul gives them a different dimension.”

“They’ve been destroying everybody. So, they’ve got a hell of a team but I don’t wake up in the morning thinking about them. I think about what I’m going to have for breakfast. I also think about lunch, what we’re going to at practice [and] what movie my wife and I are going to watch that night.

“So, there’s plenty of time to think about the Rockets and the Spurs and Cleveland and everybody else who’s challenging us. But it’s a good position to be in — knowing people are thinking about us.”
