Steve Kerr

In this in-depth biography, an award-winning sports journalist assesses the life and career of Steve Kerr, the championship-winning basketball player and head coach of the record-breaking Golden State Warriors. Few individuals have had a career as storied--and improbable--as Steve Kerr. He's been part of eight NBA titles, General Manager of a franchise, and a respected broadcaster. Playing under three Hall of Fame coaches, including Phil Jackson, and a fourth destined for enshrinement, Gregg Popovich, Kerr was on five championship teams before winning three more as one of the most accomplished coaches in the NBA, with three NBA titles. Kerr's teammates have included the greatest of the greatest: Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan, Scottie Pippen, David Robinson, and Dennis Rodman. In this fascinating biography, Scott Howard-Cooper looks at the man and the facets of his unusual life that have made him a legend, from his childhood growing up in the Middle East as the son of academics, to the tragedy of his father's murder by terrorists; the inauspicious years of his early career at the University of Arizona and in the NBA; his championship-winning seasons with the Chicago Bulls and the Antonio Spurs; his success as head coach of the Golden State Warriors, leading the team to the NBA title in his first year, and adding two more championships in the next four seasons. The only NBA coach other than Red Auerbach to lead a team to the Finals five consecutive seasons, Kerr seems destined for the Basketball Hall of Fame. Steve Kerr is his incredible story, offering insights into the man, the game he personifies, and what it takes to be--and make--a champion. Steve Kerr includes 24 photos.
