He was able to laugh it off after the game
With Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr unable to lead the team because of health issues, assistant coach Mike Brown has taken the reigns of the NBA’s best team, leading them to 10 straight wins in this years’ playoffs. Apparently, however, no one told the police he was now in charge.
On his way into last night’s game, he had a run-in with the cops outside of the arena as he tried to pull in around the same time as the San Antonio Spurs team bus, nearly causing him to be late for the game. At first, he thought he was just getting the benefit of the escort to the arena, until he was forced to stop.
“I'm like, ‘This is great, I didn't have to stop for any of these red lights,’” Brown said. “So I literally start to go and I'm going to get in the far left lane to go through where we all go through, and a cop out of nowhere pulls in front of me and goes, ‘Hey you, stop!’ ... So I'm like feeling myself a little bit. I'm like, ‘Hey, I'm being bullied by Oakland PD or San Francisco PD in my own building, my own parking lot.’ So I start to go a little bit and another one pulls up: ‘Hey, you. You heard him. Stop!’’
Brown tried to let the police know that he was part of the Warriors team, pointing to the logo on his shirt and telling him he was the coach, but they still made him stop. Fortunately, there wasn’t a bigger incident, and he was able to laugh it off, but not everyone thought it was as funny as he did.
