Kerr and Steph react to Dubs’ jaw-dropping travel violations that originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Steve Kerr held nothing back when asked about the travel calls that were against the Warriors on Friday.
Speaking to reporters after Golden State’s 119-111 win over the Chicago Bulls at Chase Center, Kerr gave a surprisingly honest answer when asked if he’s happy the NBA is cracking down on roaming calls.
“We travel, we really travel,” Kerr told reporters with a smile. “We’re not just taking the half step, we’re going all out to travel right now.”
Kerr added that some of the travel violations cited by the Warriors were “mind-boggling,” with four or five being “obvious” and “glaring” trips.
“We’ve had some of those last games as well – we have to keep working on our fundamentals,” Kerr concluded.
The Warriors’ travel violations have been a talking point in recent days after Steph Curry was called up for travel in the final moments of Golden State’s 116-113 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.
Although the NBA confirmed that Curry traveled on that crucial game, he and Kerr pleaded consistency regarding those calls.
So when the 34-year-old was asked about the Warriors’ post-game traveling calls, Curry once again reiterated the need for consistency.
“I have a problem with them: they missed a race,” Curry joked. “Everyone they called was pretty clear trips and there wasn’t much to discuss.”
Curry adds that the Warriors are “talented” enough to adapt if they’re constantly called out for those violations. Still, he wants to see uniformity in the league if the NBA is to make call trips the main talking point.
“But again, it’s just about making sure it’s consistent on both sides and game after game so you have a good rhythm and you understand what those calls are focused on,” Curry concluded.

With the Warriors now 23 games into the 2022-23 NBA season, that’s about when the team starts to get into a stream and starts playing some of its basketball.
However, Golden State can only do this if it reduces its turnover.
Considering Kerr and Curry understand and acknowledge that the Warriors are making unnecessary trips, it’s only a matter of time before those calls are a thing of the past.
