Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr called Big Baller Brand CEO and patriarch LaVar Ball the "Kardashian of the NBA" for his ability to stay in headlines.

Kerr explained his thoughts on Ball and how he perceives what he believes are monumental changes in media coverages, during a press conference on Monday.

ESPN's Chris Haynes captured Kerr's statement.

Where we're going is we're going away from covering the game and getting close to sensationalized news. It's not even news really, it's just complete nonsense. But if you package that irrational nonsense with glitter and ribbon, people are going to watch.

In an eyebrow-raising turn, Kerr even questioned the media's increasing sensationalization and also ESPN's layoffs while the sports network has assigned near complete coverage of the Ball family.

Of course, ESPN sent Jeff Goodman to cover the LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball in their pro transition in Lithuania.
