Why Is TNT Punishing Steve Kerr?

His newest assignment should be classified as cruel and unusual.

Steve Kerr seems like a good guy. He has a good sense of humor.

He once wrote swear words on his shoes during a shooting slump.


“I wrote the letters F.I. on my shoes, for [bleep] it. I went out there and said I’m going to shoot every time.”

His career included four NBA titles.

He’s currently one of TNT’s best and most valued NBA analysts…

Or so we thought.

This Thursday night Kerr will be a part of a new experiment during a TNT NBA broadcast. There will not be a standard play-by-play announcer during the 10:30pm game between the Oklahoma Thunder and Golden State Warriors. Instead there will be three analysts: Steve Kerr, Reggie Miller and Chris Webber. The latter two are, respectively, a doofus and an intelligent-if-borderline-insane goofball.

We do not know.

But we do know the only way he’ll keep these knuckleheads in line.

UPDATE: Chris Webber has responded to Kerr’s hypothetical statement by waving his head around like a weirdo.

Reggie Miller could not be reached for comment as he is, and this is an official TNT quote, “busy fumbling over his words and talking nonsense.” Thursday is gonna be a LONG night.
