“It’s tough when you want there to be some respect and dignity and there hasn’t been any and then you walk into a room with your daughter and your wie, who’ve basically been insulted by his comments, and they’re distraught,” Kerr said. “And you walk in and you see the faces of your players, most of them who have been insulted directly as minorities, it’s sort of shocking. It really is. We talked about it as a team this morning. I don’t know what else to say.”
