Steve Kerr was regarded as one of the best three-point shooters in the NBA. Michael Jordan is considered to be the best player the league has ever seen.
The two won three straight NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls in 1996, 1997 and 1998.
Kerr went on to play a couple more years for the San Antonion Spurs, and even won two more NBA titles with the Spurs (1999,2003). Jordan meanwhile played two years with the Wizards, coming out of retirement, before leaving the court for good.
Today, Kerr is the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, while Jordan is the owner of the Charlotte Hornets. So, what does Kerr say to Michael every time the two former teammates meet? Not that you’d be surprised, but still.
According to Rusty Simmons, who covers the Warriors for The San Francisco Chronicle, Kerr is forever thankful to Jordan. Wouldn’t you be?
“I usually manage to say, ‘Thank you,’ when I see him. ‘Thanks for all of the rings, contracts & everything,'” Simmons tweeted, citing Kerr.
Kerr, who recently signed a 5-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, played 15 years in the NBA. He played in 910 NBA games (30 started), averaging 6.0 ppg in 17.8 minutes per game.
His most memorable moment as a pro came during the Bulls’ second championship run when Jordan found him off a double-team for a title-clinching jumper against the Utah Jazz.Follow @exnbadotcom
