Steve Kerr held nothing back when asked about the travel calls that were against the Warriors on Friday.

Talk to journalists after Golden State win 119-111 above Chicago Bulls at Chase Center, Kerr gave a surprisingly honest answer when asked if he’s happy the NBA is cracking down on roaming calls.

“We travel, we really travel,” Kerr told reporters with a smile. “We’re not just taking the half step, we’re going all out to travel right now.”

Kerr added that some of the travel violations cited by the Warriors were “mind-boggling,” with four or five being “obvious” and “glaring” trips.

“We’ve had some of those last games as well – we have to keep working on our fundamentals,” Kerr concluded.

The Warriors’ travel violations have been the subject of discussion in recent days after Steph Curry was called for travel in times of decline of Golden State’s 116-113 loss to Dallas Mavericks tuesday.

Although the The NBA has confirmed that Curry traveled on this crucial piece, he and Kerr have pleaded for consistency regarding these appeals.

So when the 34-year-old was asked about the Warriors’ post-game traveling calls, Curry once again reiterated the need for consistency.

“I have a problem with them: they missed a race,” Curry joked. “Everyone they called was pretty clear trips and there wasn’t much to discuss.”

Curry adds that the Warriors are “talented” enough to adapt if they’re constantly called out for those violations. Still, he wants to see uniformity in the league if the NBA is to make call trips the main talking point.

“But again, it’s just about making sure it’s consistent on both sides and game after game so you have a good rhythm and you understand what those calls are focused on,” Curry concluded.

With the Warriors now 23 games into the 2022-23 NBA season, that’s about when the team starts to get into a stream and starts playing some of its basketball.

However, Golden State can only do this if it reduces its turnover.

Considering Kerr and Curry understand and acknowledge that the Warriors are making unnecessary trips, it’s only a matter of time before those calls are a thing of the past.
