Steve Kerr has been surrounded by greatness during his entire career. The 8x NBA champion played alongside incredible players like Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, David Robinson, and Tim Duncan.
After he became a head coach, he led more superstars to the promised land, taking a young Golden State Warriors team to win the 2014/15 NBA title before recording the greatest regular season of all time the following season. Kerr already had Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green on the roster, and after the summer of 2016, the Dubs added Kevin Durant to the roster, who became another gem in Kerr's career. Now, the Dubs are a different team than the one from 2016 through 2016.
Stephen Curry keeps displaying his talent every night, becoming the strong favorite to win the 2022 NBA MVP. He's involved in debates with Kevin Durant, but some fans are raising the bar for Curry, comparing him to none other than Michael Jordan.
Recently, one fan tried to get a response from Kerr on this debate, but the head coach didn't want to get involved in that, having a big reaction to the question.
Fan: "Steve, one question: Michael Jordan or Steph [Curry]?"
Kerr: "Maaannnnn! What, are you gonna put this on Twitter?"
It took a little for Kerr to process the question, but he was quick to shut it down, laughing with the fan and jokingly calling him out.
As you may know, Kerr was important for the Chicago Bulls dynasty, even making big shots to secure the 1997 NBA championship against the Utah Jazz.
He holds precious memories from those days and really values his new facet, so making him pick between the greatest player of all time (one of his best friends) and the best player he's coached, the reason why his team has only lost two games this season, it's difficult for him.
Still, Kerr has compared these two legends in the past, saying that Curry's brilliance and excellence are very similar to Jordan's. I don't think he can give us more than that now, but nice try, random fan.
