Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr talks Canadians. Kerr has always appreciated the friendliness of Canadians, but he joked that Deron Brooks might be an exception.

Kerr Sticks by Canadian Love, But Takes Jab at Dillon Brooks: Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, known for his fondness for Canadians, jokingly admits there might be one exception: Dillon Brooks. Ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Toronto Raptors, Kerr reiterated his love for Canadians, saying, "I still feel that way, but I forgot about Dillon Brooks." This playful dig references their past clash when Brooks' reckless play injured Gary Payton II in the 2022 playoffs.

Joseph a Shining Example of Canadian Character: While Brooks might be the exception to Kerr's rule, veteran Cory Joseph is a shining example of Canadian character. Kerr, impressed by Joseph's professionalism and leadership, shared Gregg Popovich's high praise: "He's one of the finest human beings you'll ever meet." Despite limited playing time, Joseph has remained prepared, and with Chris Paul's injury, his role is expected to increase.

Joseph's Opportunity to Rise: Kerr confirmed that Joseph will play against Toronto, a chance to prove his worth after averaging 1.8 points, 0.8 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in sporadic appearances. Can he step up and fill Paul's void?
