«All of them,» Kerr said Friday on 95.7 The Game’s «Damon, Ratto & Kolsky» show.
Kerr played four seasons on the Chicago Bulls with Michael Jordan, the greatest player of all time. He has coached Curry for six seasons in the Bay Area. The former player turned coach knows firsthand what greatness is all about.
He also found a way to compare Curry and Jordan’s greatness.
«It’s a little bit like — people ask me, ‘What was it like to play with Michael Jordan?’ Well, every night was a show,» Kerr said. «That was the biggest thing with Michael. Every single night you just were in awe of what you were watching. And because of that, I never really thought of one moment with Michael Jordan. That’s kind of how I feel with Steph.
«He’s had so many big games for us, so many big shots, but there’s not really one that stands out.»
Greatness isn’t about one single moment. It’s about a never-ending list. That’s exactly what Curry’s had, just like Jordan. From becoming the first unanimous MVP in NBA history to reaching five straight NBA Finals while changing basketball, Curry’s run has been about moments, plural, without us even realizing it at times.
«The fact that he’s doing things that have never been done before, he’s playing in a manner that has never been done before,» Kerr said. «That speaks to how good he is — not one game or one moment.»
