I have always liked Steve Kerr. Ever since he was a member of the Chicago Bulls!
Yes, that team had Michael, Scottie, Tony, B.J., Horace, Bill and of course Dennis but there were a handful of consummate team guys who stood out thanks to their subtle contributions. Steve Kerr was one of those guys. His back story is incredible.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Kerr)
Once you do a background check on Kerr, everything simply makes sense as it relates to his success as a person and as a coach.
After coaching the Golden State Warriors to the 2017 NBA title, Kerr now has 7 NBA titles to his credit (5 as a player and 2 as a coach). Yet, its not what he has done in the spotlight that really impresses. What really stands out is his humility, respect for the game and his genuine connection to those around him. It’s his ability to lead, give credit where credit is due and connect on a deeper level with his players and staff that leaves me wishing every coach/leader at any level should spend a day with Steve Kerr.
He is a LEADER! No doubt about.
