Kerr steered the Warriors to 4 straight NBA Finals and 3 championships. The 52-year-old also holds an incredible 265-63 regular-season record and 63-20 in the playoffs.
He also led the Warriors to the best regular season record in NBA history last 2016 at 73-9, edging the 72-10 record set by the 1996 Chicago Bulls, where he was a key rotation player. However, the Warriors blew a 3-1 Finals lead to the eventual 2016 champion Cleveland Cavaliers. – with reports from the Associated Press
