Word on the street is Kerr's first interaction with Jordan was in the form of a quick locker room BJ pre-game.

Steve kerr is a liar. He makes comedy jokes diminishing his skills and his worth. The truth is he hates mj and his life goal is to have more rings than mj. Right now kerr has 8 rings. His legacy is quickly moving up into legand status. If he gets 10 rings, he is more important to basketball than jordan ever was. Right now Jordan is still more important

james jonas are you dumb? He’s only got 5 rings when he was playing and being a coach with rings isn’t counted as player

I wonder why don't Michael Jordan be in these shows?

Man what a career Kerr has so far. As a player he thought he would not last long in the NBA, gets 5 rings and be part of perhaps the greatest team in NBA history. Then 3 more rings as a coach and be part of the team with the most wins in NBA history.

Bob I live in Chicago as well. Reggie Theus used to be my favorite (whom they let go to make room for Jordan). Yes, Scottie was a rail-thin, timid rookie. Jordan, like Bird, competed in practice like they were playoff games. Scottie's mental growth and inability to handle the physical play and mind-games of the Pistons probably resulted in the Bulls needing another year before they got over the Piston mountain. Dennis was an interesting add-on, because of his behavior in San Antonio. I never liked him but always respected him. But it speaks to Jordan and Pippen's professionalism (and frankly Phil's handling of Dennis when the rest of the league didn't want him) that they picked him up. No one wanted him, and then he goes and helps the Bulls win 3 more titles! He was a FANTASTIC addition, and while I hated his antics even in Chicago, he fit perfectly into that rebounding PF position. They were a better, more versatile team on both ends than with Horace. Rodman was the epitome of a workhorse who beat men he was giving up 5" and more to.

I lived in Chicago and watched or attended 100s of bull games. Scott was a great player , but only because Micheal gave him the courage to excel. Scotty was from a small school, was a great athlete ,he was tall, had long arms, was tenacious but 1 level below the greats we aren't giving Dennis Rodman enough credit for the bulls success. He played on Detroit when they won the championship, went to San Antonio where they one the championship, then the Bulls, he was a truly one of a kind athlete, and played a style they wouldn't allow today he lead the league in rebounding 7 times.

Bob Lang You've seen a lot my friend and there's clearly a lot of wisdom about you. Keep keepin' on !

I'm 73 yes young, always played basketball, so I've watched the NBA since the late 70's,
Wilt was easily the best besides Russell
Oscar game was near perfect . He wasted 10 yrs in Cincinnati, but when he was traded to Milwaukee and Kareem joined him they won the NBA championship
No doubt there is only one Micheal Jordon, extra ordinary athlete, best dunker , scorer and defender also the best competitor.

Bob Lang I can agree with you that he was the best pure shooter and I'd add he was the smartest player I ever saw play. For the record, I don't need to (but I do) watch him on YouTube, because I saw his entire career. He was a more complete player than Magic and even a better passer. But as far as basketball skills, I though when I saw Larry Bird, I'd seen the best until Michael showed up. Frankly, Jordan did not have a flaw in his game. Today, you'd have to make the argument that Curry might just be the best pure shooter the game has ever played but he's not as versatile or smart as Larry (there is video of Curry sinking 97-100 3-pointers in practice). Could Larry have done that? I believe so, but having seen the 'old' NBA, we both know that 3-pointers weren't the premium back then. I can only recognize your appreciation for Larry but for me Michael was the best player on offense in the league as well as the best defender at his own position in the league which is remarkable. Nor was he a one-dimensional center, which elevates both he and Larry.

And here we are now with Kerr on 7 rings an probably more to come.. Wow. I bet he'd credit some of that down to his time playing with MJ.

I'm a huge Jordan fan but I'm getting sick of these fake-ass stories that didn't happen, why do people insist on telling pretend stories just to exaggerate ... this never happened.

Johnnie Harlor Did you watch Jordan's entire career? Read the books? Read the beat reporters? Most of the stories are a matter of record if not evidenced by thousands in attendance and millions who watched it in real time. The stories are legendary because we were witness to a genuine legend. It's pretty arrogant to question Steve Kerr who's telling the story to a national audience and call him a liar.
