Kerr’s comments come just days after Kevin Durant complained at unfair media coverage surrounding his potential free agency.
Durant has a player option on his contract for next year, but has been linked with a move away from the franchise.
Reports had suggested that the star would opt out of his contract and head to either the New York Knicks or the LA Clippers.
However, speaking publicly for the first time in more than a week on Thursday after the Warriors game with the San Antonio Spurs, Durant told reporters to ‘grow up’ and stop writing about his free agency decision.
He insisted that there was no substantial link with the Knicks, and that he doesn’t trust any members of the media anymore.
Durant claimed that his words had been twisted, before walking out of the press conference after just three-and-a-half minutes.
Kerr backed up his star, however, and admitted that he just needed to blow off some steam.
“We’re all actors in a soap opera,” he said.
“We really are. So we have to deal with that part of it. And also understand that that’s a big part of the revenue stream. The intense interest and passion that fans have for who’s going where, what team’s doing what.
“He was blowing off some steam.
“We know Kevin very well, he’s been here three years.
“I think you guys would agree he’s been really good with media, with you guys. He’s been a great teammate.
“We all have moments of frustration, times in our life when we maybe don’t feel like talking, maybe we’re frustrated about something.
“So I think you just — you give him a pass.
“As I mentioned, he’s been so good for several years, taking care of all of his responsibilities on and off the floor here. We’re all human.
“We all get a little frustrated, so… move on.”
