Steve Kerr Blames Steph Curry's Injuries For Losing The Finals By Saying His Injuries Aren't An Excuse

Steve Kerr is still saying that Steph Curry's injuries were no excuse to lose The Finals, but the way he's saying makes it sound and awful lot like an excuse.

Via CSN Bay Area: “We didn’t hide anything,” Kerr said. “If there had been a diagnosis, we would have told you. We don’t hide stuff like that. He was banged up. But that’s not an excuse. It’s not an injury; it’s just that the reality of the season and it kind of hit him at the wrong time, given that everything started in the playoffs and carried through.

“We wouldn’t have sat him out. We wouldn’t have said anything different than what we said. It’s just the reality of sports. It always takes a little bit of luck to win a title. We always say that, and it’s the truth. You’ve got to get a break here and there.

“Maybe this wasn’t the year for us. We made a hell of a run. We were right there, seconds away. That’s how hard it is. You’ve got to go for it, and whatever happens, happens. And then you move on, and that’s what we’ve done.”

Kerr is not only using Curry's injuries as an excuse, the dude is throwing shade at the Cavs by saying it takes luck to win a title.  I think it takes a little more than luck to comeback from a 3-1 deficit and win a title.
