Steve Kerr had remarked:

In this building, you can't hear anything because it's like a club. It's like a South Beach club out there. What are we doing? I'm being dead serious. I couldn't hear anything. It's thumping techno club music. Can we just have a basketball game anymore? What the hell?

Kerr’s comments did not go unnoticed. In an amusing response, the Phoenix Suns’ DJ seized the opportunity to remix Kerr’s critical words into a track. This remix was played during a game against the Sacramento Kings, adding a humorous twist to the ongoing rivalry between the Suns and the Golden State Warriors.
