Coach Steve Kerr was back on the Golden State Warriors' bench tonight when they seized a 2-0 lead over Cleveland with a 132-113 victory in the National Basketball Association championship playoffs.
Yes, folks, I know it's June, but the basketball season is still going on.
Good for Steve Kerr, who has a long history of problems with his back.
I hope he continues to demonstrate both physical and emotional strength throughout a playoff series that will end a tremendously long NBA season.
Indeed, all of us--you, me and the millions of other people worldwide experiencing back pain--should be hoping Kerr weathers the storm.
Kerr [pictured] missed Golden State's previous 11 playoff games due to ongoing complications from a 2015 back surgery that doctors evidently screwed up.
I know the feeling.
My back pain and the sciatica in my right leg associated with it have me hurting [again] right now.
Two 6-week physical therapy sessions, one 6-week water therapy session, pain pills [hydrocodone included], back surgery Sept. 1, 2016 known as a laminectomy and four cortisone injections--two near my spine and two in my right hip--have not helped much.
The only relief I got was for 5 months after one of the shots in my hip.
Now I again hurt like hell.
If Steve Kerr gets through the remainder of his team's playoff games without incident, I may try to call him and see if he'll refer me to his doctor.
