He (Kerr) couldn't answer the question โ€“ he was shaking ... He didn't know how to answer the question, and yet he'll talk about the United States very badly.

I watched Popovich โ€“ sort of the same thing, but he didn't look quite as scared actually.

They talk badly about the United States, but when it talks about China, they don't want to say anything bad.

I thought it was pretty sad, actually.

It'll be very interesting.

We've obviously been really outspoken since I can remember, in terms of our organization and all that.
