Golden State Warriors’ Steve Kerr: No team should play road games on Christmas in back-to-back years

SAN FRANCISCO — As the Golden State Warriors roll into a Christmas Day showdown with the Phoenix Suns on Saturday, they do so with a little frustration.

That way you can still have a good family day Christmas morning with the kids and then go to the arena later.

“It is an honor to play on Christmas — it’s a showcase and everybody’s watching — but I do think there should be a rule in the NBA that you can’t be on the road two years in a row.

Warriors forward Draymond Green echoed Kerr’s suggestion that teams shouldn’t have to play Christmas road games in back-to-back years, saying that it’s difficult for players to be away from their family on the holiday.

And it’s a bit frustrating to have to go on the road a second year in a row.

So like I said, I missed her first one and I’ll miss her second one.

But it is weird — especially on the road, I got three kids and how special a day and weekend it is, so you’re trying to balance being present with them and doing a job and playing a game and staying focused on that.

And you got to step up and meet that challenge, and it will be a tough challenge going against a good Phoenix team into their building to get a win.
