Steve Kerr was the 50th overall pick in the 1988 NBA Draft. However, he claimed in previous interviews that if he were a basketball prospect in today’s era, he wouldn’t have made it to the big league.
Of course, Kerr is just being humble. The Warriors coach has a total of eight titles — five as a player (four with the Chicago Bulls, one with the San Antonio Spurs) and three as a coach. Also, he’s the only person in the league who was a member of the only 70-win teams in the league as a player and as a coach: the 72-win Bulls in the 1995-96 season and the 73-win Warriors in the 2015-16 season.
Kerr has also worked with the legends of basketball such as Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Phil Jackson, Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan, and many more. Of course, there’s Stephen Curry who single-handedly transformed the way basketball is being played today.
Moreover, it’s impossible to ignore Kerr’s impact on the playing style and improvement of Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Looking at his individual accolades, Kerr holds the best 3-point shooting percentage in NBA history at 45.4 percent. He also made the game-winning shot in Game 6 of the 1996 NBA Finals which gave the Bulls their fifth title.
Indeed, the 54-year-old Warriors bench boss boasts a strong resume, but he prefers to be humble at all times.
