Someone tell Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr that “I don’t wanna be here” is Eric Bledsoe’s line.
On the first possession of the second half in Golden State’s preseason matchup with the Phoenix Suns, Kerr’s point guard Stephen Curry got called for an illegal backscreen.
Curry was immediately given a technical foul, which led to Kerr coming out all the way onto the court to ask the officials what the deal was.

The refs weren’t having it, tossing Kerr quickly.

Kerr proceeded to go look in the direction of the other referee and say, “I don’t wanna be here anyway!” and waved goodbye.
It’s hard to say what exactly led to the Warriors being so heated about the call or the refs’ quick trigger on the technical fouls, but the Suns took advantage with a 10-0 run to start the second half.
