Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has seen everything during his basketball career. From barely being recruited out of high school, to winning five rings as a player alongside Michael Jordan and Tim Duncan, to four more at the helm of a Golden State dynasty, his path has certainly been incredible. When asked what his late father would have said about his journey, Kerr says: “He wouldn’t believe it.” In the season finale of Lead by Example, Kerr and Warriors President Bob Myers sit down for an unprecedented conversation about Kerr’s career, values and regrets. Kerr discusses choosing the Warriors over the Knicks and his mentor Phil Jackson, his favorite thing about Steph Curry, the ups and downs of coaching Kevin Durant and the reason behind Golden State’s success.
