OAKLAND — Before the Golden State Warriors opened up the 2017 postseason by hosting the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday afternoon, head coach Steve Kerr offered up an unprompted Easter benediction to cap his pregame press conference.
“I just want to say Happy Easter, too,” Kerr said. “It’s a good reminder, today, that — I’m not an overly religious person but [I’m] a spiritual person. I think holidays are a great time to reflect and remind each other — regardless of race, color, creed, gender, political preference, religious preference — it’s important for everybody to just try to bring some joy to the world, extend some goodwill and today’s a good reminder of that.”
“We’re playing a game today,” Kerr continued. “Great competition. Our fans are going to be excited. We’re so lucky to be in this building, live the lives that we do, and today’s a good day to extend a hand and help somebody out there.”Golden State WarriorsNBAPortland Trail BlazersSteve Kerr
