Well, folks, there’s good news and there’s bad news.
The good news is that it looks like Steve Kerr will still be coaching the Golden State Warriors next season, and for the years to follow.
The bad news is that it’s because he won’t be running for office in 2020.
Despite the long-running calls for the popular head coach to form a ticket with San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, there will be no Pop/Kerr 2020. Instead, Kerr is apparently advocating for Popovich to slide into the vice president role alongside potential presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.
Kerr promoted “Beto and Pop, 2020” on Twitter, a platform that the coach primarily uses for political activism. It came as a response to a video posted by O’Rourke, who is running for senate in Texas, and hoping to beat the incumbent Ted Cruz.
Regardless of whether you would vote for completely unrealistic hypothetical ticket of O’Rourke and a basketball coach, the message from both Kerr and O’Rourke is clear, and vital: Very, very important midterm elections are fast approaching, so, for those of you who are over 18 and live in the United States, please make sure to partake in democracy and do your civic duty by voting.
