Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr had a comical fainting spell on the sidelines after finding out that his team had won a challenge against the referees during their recent game against the Phoenix Suns.
The incident took place in the fourth quarter of the game when the Warriors challenged a foul call on player Draymond Green. After a brief review, the referees overturned the call, giving the Warriors possession of the ball.
As soon as the ruling was announced, Kerr, who had been passionately arguing with the officials just moments before, couldn’t contain his excitement. In an unexpected turn of events, the coach hilariously feigned a fainting spell, much to the amusement of the players and fans in attendance.
The light-hearted moment quickly went viral on social media, with many fans and fellow coaches praising Kerr for his entertaining reaction to the favorable ruling.
Despite Kerr’s theatrics, the Warriors ultimately fell to the Suns 107-103, but the coach’s comedic display provided a lighthearted and memorable moment in an otherwise intense game.
Kerr has gained a reputation for his animated sideline behavior and witty sense of humor, and his fainting episode only added to his colorful coaching persona.
The Warriors will look to bounce back from their narrow defeat in their next game, and Kerr will undoubtedly continue to entertain both his players and fans with his unique brand of sideline antics.
