Don't put any effort in when you're playing against the Warriors, especially if Steph Curry has or is near the ball. If you do Steve Kerr might get upset and need his binky.
Marcus Smart, who does admittedly have a history of testing the limits of the rules, dove for a loose ball and ended up inadvertently hitting Curry in the legs with his body.
Smart then threw his legs up on the defensive end and was called for a flagrant foul. The leg being thrown up was apparently fine with Kerr, he had an issue with Smart diving on the floor for the loose ball.
Here is the play with both incidents:
The Warriors staff was upset with both of these Marcus Smart plays. First one was a roll up of Steph Curry's leg that has him currently in the locker room, second ruled a flagrant on Klay Thompson. Kerr was telling refs to review both plays, mimicking a leg chop to officials. pic.twitter.com/6edSJxQszv

Here is Kerr crying because Curry got hurt.
Looks like Kerr was yelling at Marcus Smart “YOU WERE TRYING TO HURT HIM”, after Smart dove into Steph’s knees.

Now there's absolutely no defending Smart throwing his leg at Thompson. That shit was dirty, but if you watched him dive for the loose ball and though he was trying to hurt Curry you're an idiot.
That or amongst the softest the planet has to offer.
