Believe it or not, you can’t write the story of NBA basketball without talking about Steve Kerr. His career averages of 6.0 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game may not be surprising at all, although he does hold the record for the highest career three-pointer percentage at 45.4%.

However, Kerr worked his heart off to find a spot in the league as a role player, and his determination to do what his team needed made him an invaluable part of two of the winningest franchises ever.

He then pursued a career as an executive and was somewhat successful, but later became one of the best coaches in modern basketball, turning the Golden State Warriors from a playoff team into the most terrifying dynasty of the past decade.

That being said, with 8 rings under his belt (5 as a player and 3 as a coach), it’s pretty safe to say that he’s been a part of dozens of iconic moments in NBA history. He’s shared the court/gym with some of the greatest players and basketball masterminds this game has ever seen.
