Video: Steve Kerr yells at referee Jason Goldenberg, gets ejected
Steve Kerr was ejected from Monday night’s Golden State Warriors-Sacramento Kings game after berating the referees.
Warriors big man Willie Cauley-Stein drove to the basket and laid one in with under 1:20 left to make it a 49-36 game. Kerr thought Cauley-Stein was fouled on the play and began yelling at referee Jason Goldenberg when one was not called. He started yelling “wake the f–k up” at Goldenberg and was given two technical fouls and tossed.
"Wake up! Wake the f— up!"

On the previous play, De’Aaron Fox was given a foul call, which likely upset compounded Kerr’s frustration.
The ejection was the third of Kerr’s career and second in Sacramento. If he was going to get tossed, at least he got his money’s worth.
