Steve Kerr finds unique way to compare Steph Curry to Michael Jordan

Steve Kerr finds unique way to compare Steph Curry to Michael Jordan

Three championships. Two NBA MVP awards. But what is Steph Curry's defining moment? Warriors coach Steve Kerr only needed three words to answer that question. 

"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."

Steve Kerr, Warriors will approach Chicago bubble 'like summer league'

Steve Kerr, Warriors will approach Chicago bubble 'like summer league'

Steve Kerr made headlines a month ago when he said the Warriors would not be interested in participating in some sort of summer league with the teams not playing in Orlando.

On Thursday, Golden State's coach provided an update on his perspective as a guest on The Athletic's "Hoops, Adjacent" podcast with David Aldridge and BIG Wos.

"Originally when it was announced that the 22 teams would go to Orlando, we felt like the other eight of us would probably be allowed to do some kind of an in-market training camp. And that is the most preferable scenario for us and frankly for most of the teams," Kerr explained. "But like everything else in the world, there are just so many factors here.

"I respect where the NBA is coming from, where the players' association is coming from, where the guidelines are coming from -- so this is really complex.

"We're gonna do whatever the league asks us to do. If that means going to Chicago for a bubble, then we'll do it."

Well there you have it.

But don't expect players like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins to join the team in the "Windy City." In fact, it's very possible Kerr doesn't make the trip either.

When Aldridge said, "I got to imagine at the very least, younger guys would be the core of your group, right? And maybe some of the younger coaches, frankly, might make that trip," Kerr was transparent.

"We really haven't had a chance to talk about it, but I think those are pretty good assumptions to make," the eight-time NBA champion said. "It would feel like a summer league. If we go to Chicago, it's purely for development."

So guys like Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole, Alen Smailagic and Marquese Chriss would be expected to take the floor.

It's safe to assume new details will emerge at some point this month, but the overwhelming majority of the league's focus right now -- understandably -- is on Orlando.

Watch Steph Curry, Canelo Álvarez spar at celebrity golf tournament

Watch Steph Curry, Canelo Álvarez spar at celebrity golf tournament

Oh no! Steph Curry got in a sparring match.

Just kidding. But the Warriors superstar did have a fake fight with legendary boxer Canelo Álvarez while the two were waiting to play a practice round at the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe.

Canelo made Curry look the least athletic he probably has ever looked -- and that’s saying something. 

Canelo swiped from the left side at Steph and he couldn’t believe it. 

“You’re supposed to move, dude,” somebody shouted as Steph laughed. 

Canelo has just one loss across his career with 53 wins in 56 fights -- 36 of those wins by knockout. That’s probably why he’s dubbed the world’s best active boxer by BoxRec.

Glad it’s Steph and not me.

Don’t worry, nobody was hurt in the making of this Instagram story.
