OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr’s willingness to speak out in favor of sports leagues permitting medicinal marijuana usage to help cope with pain hasn’t completely resonated with everyone.
Phoenix Suns head coach Earl Watson said he understands where Kerr is coming from, but he’s concerned Kerr’s message of embracing marijuana might be taken the wrong way by youngsters.
“I think our rhetoric on it has to be very careful, because you have a lot of kids where I’m from that’s reading this, and they think [marijuana use is] cool,” Watson told ESPN on Saturday evening. “It’s not cool. Where I’m from, you don’t get six fouls to foul out; you get three strikes. One strike leads to another. I’m just being honest with you, so you have to be very careful with your rhetoric.”
Born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas, Watson grew up surrounded by poverty, violent crimes, drug addicts and gangs. He sadly has a long list of childhood friends who are either incarcerated or dead.

Kerr sat out roughly five months recovering from multiple back surgeries after the Warriors won the NBA championship in 2015. On Friday, while discussing his recovery, Kerr became the latest high-profile sports figure to advocate for the use of marijuana as a way to deal with chronic pain.
“I guess maybe I can even get in some trouble for this, but I’ve actually tried it twice during the last year and a half, when I’ve been going through this chronic pain that I’ve been dealing with,” Kerr told The Warriors Insider Podcast on Friday. “[After] a lot of research, a lot of advice from people and I have no idea if maybe I would have failed a drug test. I don’t even know if I’m subject to a drug test or any laws from the NBA.”
Kerr’s stance comes after trying several different types of painkillers to manage not lingering pain in his back and frequent headaches. He believes that Vicodin, a common painkiller that “athletes everywhere are prescribed . . . like it’s vitamin C, like it’s no big deal,” is not an answer.
“I know enough, especially over the last…
