At a post-game press conference on Friday, coach Steve Kerr shared his sentiments about basketball being globalized in the past thirty years, back in 1992 when the USA squad aka ‘Dream Team,’ led by Michael Jordan took home the gold in the Barcelona Olympics.
Coach Steve Kerr Says Basketball Game Has Evolved
Unlike Germany’s coach Gordon Herbert who doesn’t have NBA titles or finals appearances, coach Steve Kerr, renowned Golden State Warriors mentor, is the other way around, but still, Gordon has led Germany to a 113-111 triumph over the United States during the World Cup’s semi-final match. This might have prompted coach Steve Kerr to recall some fleeting moments of his famed “Dream Team” before as they successfully achieved the gold title. According to coach Steve Kerr, the basketball game has evolved through the years. Players and teams become better over time and the games have become difficult.
Coach Steve Kerr Still Proud Of His Team
Amidst the defeat, coach Steve Kerr expressed enthusiastic remarks about his team saying he was proud of his guys for fighting through the end even though they couldn’t quite get THERE. To date, Team USA’s last acquisition of the World Cup was in the 2014 edition in Seville, Spain, with a 129-92 demolition of Serbia. Coach Steve Kerr’s team’s loss against Germany was their second defeat prior to Lithuania in the second round. Coach Steve Kerr’s team is set to compete against Canada for the bronze medal on Sunday before Germany proceeds for the gold chase later the same day against Serbia.
