If you've experienced the pain of losing a parent at a young age, you cherish any and all old images and videos of them.

If your parent happened to pass away before cell phones became so prevalent, then those photos and videos mean even more.

Uncovering old images or videos you hadn't seen before is an emotional moment.

For Steve Kerr, the final two episodes of "The Last Dance" on ESPN last weekend provided that feeling.

The current Warriors coach and former Chicago Bulls guard revisited the assassination of his father, Malcolm Kerr, in 1984. During the sequence of the documentary, footage was shown of Malcolm Kerr speaking at the American University of Beirut.

"I had emails from my siblings," Kerr said during an interview on KNBR 680 on Friday. "They hadn't seen, nor had I, the footage of our dad speaking when they showed him being interviewed on campus in Beirut. We had never seen that footage, so to hear his voice and see him like that was pretty emotional.

"These guys who are doing the documentary are people who look back at these stories. They have access to stuff we don't know about. So we are able to see and read things that we had never seen before."

We all watched Kerr get emotional during the ninth episode of "The Last Dance." But we had no idea he was getting emotional watching that exact some clip, but for a different reason.

I can relate to Kerr. A few years ago, nearly 20 years after my mom had passed away, I was given footage of her speaking at a work event prior to her death. I had never seen the clip before. I was 12 years old when she died, so it's hard to recall her voice in my head. That day was very emotional.

So I imagine last Sunday was a very emotional day for Kerr and his entire family.
