Steve Kerr On Stephen Curry's Unbelievable Shots: "Every Coach I Ever Had Would Have A Heart Attack Watching Those Shots"

Stephen Curry and his unbelievable shooting ability is something that goes hand in hand. Curry knocks down some uncanny shots from time to time, most of them from beyond the three-point line. It is truly sensational to witness one of the best players in the NBA in action.

Speaking of Steph's greatness, he has impacted a whole generation of players to adapt to his playing style. Not only that, almost every team in the NBA now focuses more on three-point shooting than ever. The reason is simply the impact of Steph.

Who better to talk to about Steph's greatness than Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr? Kerr has observed Curry more closely than anyone and has never been shy to praise the superstar. Well, recently Kerr once again reminded everyone about the greatness of Curry.

Via Damon & Ratto:

"He was taking shots that — in my basketball blood — every coach I ever had would have a heart attack watching those shots. I had to get over what was instilled in my brain about what was a good shot and what was a bad shot. With Steph, you have to understand, part of what makes him so powerful is that he’s going to steal the ball at midcourt and pull up from 40 feet.”

Steve Kerr was a great shooter during his playing days. But back then attempting shots from 40 feet was something you would see once in a blue moon. Even if the players had tried to attempt such shots, the coaches would have probably given them an earful.

During Kerr's playing days, the game of basketball was completely different than what it has become now. In the rise of Stephen Curry, Kerr has played a crucial role. If he had not become the head coach of the Warriors, maybe Steph would never have become the player that he is today.

As for this season, the Warriors are currently 10-1 and are looking in great touch. They have the best record in the league and Steph is all set to have another fabulous season. In fact, many believe that Curry might be on his way to winning the third regular-season MVP of his career.
