Golden State Warriors defeated Mavericks in Game 4 of the Western Conference final on Tuesday night. Ahead of the thrilling game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr held a press conference which was supposed to be about the Warriors’ preparation for the game, but the Warriors’ head coach delivered a three-minute monologue following a tragic shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, which left at least 19 students and two adults dead.

Kerr has been actively involved in raising his voice against gun violence in America, campaigned for gun violence in America, and frequently campaigned for gun control. He looked shaken to the core and on the verge of losing tears.

Notably, a teenage gunman killed at least 19 young children and two adults at an elementary school in Texas on Tuesday, prompting a furious President Joe Biden to denounce the US gun lobby and vow to end the nation’s cycle of mass shootings.

Warriors head coach, who looked miffed with the Senators, said, “When are we going to do something about it? I am tired. I am so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families out there.” He further blamed senators for being ignorant to vote on HR8, which is a background check rule that the House passed a couple of years ago. “It’s been sitting there for two years. And there’s a reason they won’t vote on it: to hold onto power,” he said.

“We can’t get numb to this. We can’t be sitting here and read about these things; let’s have a moment of silence — yea, Go, Dubs. Come on, Mavs, let’s go,” he concluded. Besides Kerr, LeBron James also expressed his outrage over Tuesday’s shooting.

The NBA stated via Twitter, “The NBA family is devastated by the horrific shooting today in Uvalde, Texas. Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to the victims’ family and friends and Robb Elementary School and Uvalde community.” Even Maverick head coach Jason Kidd also spoke on the issue ahead of the match and said that the incident was horrific and the problem needed immediate action from the authority. “People in this room have kids—elementary school. You think about what could happen with any of your family or friends at a school.”
