I do believe that one way to bring cultures together, to develop trust between people and countries and religions, is through education. And through music and art and basketball and activities and joys that people share worldwide, regardless of ethnic background or religious orientation.— Steve Kerr
The most seductive Steve Kerr quotes you will be delighted to read
The future is coming so fast, we can't possibly predict it; we can only learn to respond quickly.
It's different as a coach because you feel responsible for a lot of people.
Even though you don't take a shot, you don't get a rebound, you feel like you just want people to succeed and you want to help them any way you can.
We didn't do much different against LeBron. We were just more active and more competitive.
Our team, because of our depth and our talent, we were able to do that, and it turned into a special season as a result.
I learned that people everywhere are basically the same and have similar goals that we do. They want health and happiness and the opportunity to provide for their families.
Despite the amazing diversity we're blessed with in this country, schools are still in large part segregated because of economic disparity. Sports are one of the few areas where kids are really given the opportunity to interact with those of different races and religions.
I'm just thrilled for so many people.
Our players, mostly, but the people in our organization - Rick Welts, Joe Lacob and Peter Guber and the whole group. It's just a phenomenal group of people. I think as a coach you just appreciate kind of the big picture a little bit more.
It seems to me as I reviewed the literature that, with few exceptions, the more confident were the prescriptions about how to behave with ethics and integrity, the further removed was the author from the life and work of the everyday manager.
Yeah, I know there's been all this talk this year especially about the 3-point shot and can you win shooting it. There's a lot of different styles that can work. You have to base it on your own personnel.
I never ever gave ownership a thought. My thoughts before I retired were coaching and broadcasting.
I've been blessed with an amazing group of guys in my first year, I can't believe how lucky I am.
Guarding LeBron James has to be the hardest job in basketball.
I want to say congratulations to Cleveland and Coach Blatt. LeBron is an incredible player.
For them to have the season that they had, for them to have us on the ropes .
.. Congrats to the Cavs.
I remember Michael dribbling at the top of the key. Everybody knew to just get the hell out of his way.
It's one of those records that will stand forever. I really can't imagine anyone touching it.
I think it's imperative to follow your heart and choose a profession you're passionate about, and if you haven't found that "spark" yet, if you're not sure what you want to do with your lives - be persistent until you do.
It's been an amazing year of individual performances.
We had a lot of luck this year and our guys took advantage. Wow. What a night.
It is an interesting balance in trying to find players to make your team really good and at the same time running a financially sound operation. That is the challenge for every team.
Don't think shoot. Soon as you start thinking you miss.
Well, it speaks to the character of the players more than anything.
Bob Myers and his staff have done an incredible job of putting together this roster. I was well aware of the versatility that the roster had, but as I got to know the players I realized they had what it took spiritually, emotionally. They were united. They wanted to win. They were close.
The last couple years they've been good, but it's just a great group of guys, and they were willing to take the vision that we gave them in the beginning of the season, and we started off really well, which I think helped. But as I mentioned, Andre's sacrifice, David Lee's sacrifice, their willingness to accept roles and keep pushing really was the key to the whole thing.
I would've said yes before I saw Aaron Gordon do what he did.
And Zach LaVine went nuts as well. I think Gordon should've won for what he did. But what LaVine does is amazing. I don't know where he gets that bounce and that glide but it's incredible. I hope both those guys compete it in next year. Over the last years or so, I'd say the three-point contest has been more entertaining than the dunk contest, but this was really special this year.
I have always been very comfortable behind a microphone.
I love talking about basketball, I love being around people, I love being around the game, the travel and the excitement around the arena.
