Steve Kerr was about to address the media in Sacramento on Sunday night following the Warriors’ 121-115 preseason victory over the Kings, but he had to do something first.
The Golden State coach scrolled through his phone and let out a sigh of relief. His fantasy football team secured a win during the Warriors' third preseason test.

One day later, Kerr revealed to 95.7 The Game's "Willard and Dibs" show that his fantasy team earned its fourth win this season. He locked up a victory before the "Monday Night Football" matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Chargers.
"I’m just going to say I have a modest team this year," Kerr said. "But I am 4-2. My guys have been playing on heart basically; we are just squeaking out wins right now."
Kerr isn't in a fantasy league with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson or Draymond Green -- at least not this one. He competes against college buddies from the University of Arizona, where he starred on the court for four seasons from 1983 to 1988.
"Basically, we’ve had [our league] for about 30 years," Kerr said. "It’s a bunch of college friends. It’s so awesome because we talk so much trash. We have a group text every week, and guys are talking trash to each other. That’s the beauty of fantasy football – it keeps you connected with people that you were with 30 years ago."
