Steve Kerr has been fined $25,000 following his rant at an official during the Warriors’ loss to the Kings on Monday.
Kerr was ejected in the second quarter of the struggling Warriors’ 111-98 loss at Golden 1 Center after his frustration got the better of him. He came onto the court to let his feelings be known as Golden State slumped to a fifth consecutive defeat, shouting “wake your ass up” repeatedly at an official.
The 54-year-old was also punished for failing to leave the court in a timely manner. Kiki VanDeWeghe, the NBA’s executive vice president of basketball operations, confirmed Kerr’s punishment on Wednesday.
The Warriors are 9-29 and sit at the bottom of the Western Conference in what has been a miserable season.
