Most people now know Steve Kerr as the coach of the Golden State Warriors, where he’s been immensely successful.
Before that, a lot of fans will remember him with the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan, where he was also very successful.
But fewer will remember him at Arizona, where he was also successful.
He was one of Lute Olson’s first recruits there, if not his first, and Arizona was his first and only offer.
He was slow, not overly athletic and seemed like an easy target - but he never was.
He took care of the ball brilliantly and, as always, shot very, very well.
Here are some of his highlights from his Tucson days. It was a heady time - Arizona had rarely had basketball success and suddenly it was coming in droves. Kerr helped lead U of A to the 1988 Final Four, where the Wildcats lost to Oklahoma.
Bottom line: the guy has always been a winner.
