"And that sells, and that's what's true in politics and entertainment and now in sports. It doesn't matter if there's any substance involved with an issue, it's just can we make it really interesting for no apparent reason? There is nothing interesting about that story." โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € "I feel horrible for Luke, that's my guy, he's one of my best friends," Kerr said, referencing Ballโ€™s comments about Waltonโ€™s lack of control. "He shouldn't have to deal with this. But to me, one of the things about the NBA is it's always been a haven from the parents. The guys who coach high school are the ones who really have to deal with the parents. I've never had to talk to a parent who was upset about playing time. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € "I'm sure there are plenty out there but they don't have a voice in the NBA. But for whatever reason we're giving this guy a voice and Luke's got to deal with it, and it's a shame. He's handling it great. He's doing all he can. It's just part of his gig, unfortunately."
