Damn look at Steve Kerr trying to look cool for his team. Next, we are going to see Him Steph and Draymond rolling up after games. In a podcast released on Friday Kerr made these comments.
“I guess maybe I could even get in some trouble for this, but I’ve actually tried [marijuana] twice during the last year and a half when I’ve been going through this pain, this chronic pain that I’ve been dealing with,” Kerr told host Monte Poole. A lot of research, a lot of advice from people, and I have no idea if I would — maybe I would have failed a drug test. I don’t even know if I’m subject to a drug test or any laws from the NBA, but I tried it, and it didn’t help at all. But it was worth it, because I’m searching for answers on pain. But I’ve tried painkillers and drugs of other kinds, as well, and those have been worse. It’s tricky.”
Imagine if he got suspended for this. That would be a big mistake on his part. He also went on to say that he hopes that sports league soften their stance on the drug.
“I would hope so, and I’m not a pot person. It doesn’t agree with me. I tried it a few times, and it did not agree with me at all. So I’m not the expert on this stuff. But I do know this: If you’re an NFL player, in particular, and you got lot of pain, I don’t think there’s any question that pot is better for your body than Vicodin,” Kerr said. “And yet, athletes everywhere are prescribed Vicodin like it’s Vitamin C, like it’s no big deal. And there’s like this perception in our country that over-the-counter drugs are fine but pot is bad. Now, I think that’s changing.
Those comments beg the question pot can not agree with you? From everything I have heard it is pretty universally enjoyed. I think Steve isn’t all in on this weed stance. Also, Steve, I’m pretty sure that none of us thought of you as the expert on Marijuana as a 51-year-old NBA head coach. The point he makes about the NFL is very true, though. They have these players popping pain pills like there tic-tacs. Warriors players are pumped now because they know they can toke up with coach. Steve Kerr the modern day Red Auerbach you know minus all the championships.
