One of the beliefs that I hold most dear is how proud I am to be an American — and how incredibly thankful I am for our troops. I know how fortunate I am to live in this country, and to do what I do for a living, and to raise my daughters in peace and prosperity. But I also hear from plenty of people who don’t have it nearly as good as I do. Plenty of people who are genuinely struggling in this country. Especially our veterans.“And every single veteran I’ve spoken to, they’ve all said pretty much the exact same thing: That this conversation we’ve started to have in the world of sports … whether it’s been Colin (Kaepernick) kneeling, or entire NFL teams finding their own ways to show unity, or me saying that I didn’t want to go to the White House — it’s the opposite of disrespectful to them.”Kerr applauded his superstar again.“I thought it was beautiful,” Kerr said. “He’s very thoughtful, he’s very compassionate, very smart and he’s humble. I’ve made the comment before that he is incredibly arrogant on the floor and humble off the court. I think that’s a really powerful combination. … When he speaks it’s from the heart.”TIP-INS76ers: The Sixers forced Golden State into eight first-quarter turnovers. … Philadelphia shot 51.9 percent in the first half to stay within 65-64 at the break.Warriors: Andre Iguodala, who started in Durant’s place Wednesday, was out for rest. … Curry moved into a tie with Guy Rodgers for 10th place on the franchise list for all-time games played at 587.
