Steve Kerr was one of my favorite players growing up as a kid (outside of MJ obviously), I had to beg my mom to get me a black bulls Steve Kerr jersey back in 97, but I had no idea he was going to have this type of career.

While his numbers are not that great, he played a huge part in the second 3 peat for the Chicago Bulls including the game winner for the 97 Championship.

In 03 WCF, he came off the Spurs bench COLD and drained 4 huge 3s against the Mavs which changed the entire series and on his way to his 5th title.

He won his 6th title as a coach winning 67 games in his rookie year.

He has the opportunity to beat the best record to win 73 games. He would be the only person to be a part of both teams and the opportunity to win his 7th ring.

If his coaching career continued the way it has, would you put him in the HOF?

I also forgot to add that he owns the highest 3pt % in the NBA.

easily. remember, it's the Basketball HOF

All American at Arizona, twice. All Pac-10, twice. Gold Medal for the US in 1986. Decent NBA career. Now has a championship as a head coach.

He will sail in, because it's all wrapped into one big resume.

His career is just ridiculous if you think about it...think about all the HOF coaches he also had the opportunity to play for

Lute Olson
Lenny Wilkins
Phil Jackson
Greg Popovich

All the amazing players he got to play with
Mark Price
Tom Chambers
Craig Ehlo
Shaq
Jordan
Pippen
Rodman
David Robinson
Duncan

Saved me the trouble. When you combine his college, pro, and coaching careers he is already in.

Sure why not. The basketball hall of fame puts everyone in when you factor in college and influence stuff. If he continues an impressive coaching stint he's easily past the bar that has been set.

I'm not really familiar at all with how the bball HOF works (apparently), but as a player my answer to this would be no way. Yeah he's a great shooter, was on all time great Bulls teams, but dude was a backup. I don't really get why a backup goes to the HOF but I guess bball works differently.

Also as a coach... the guy has fallen into the easiest coaching gig possibly ever. I mean maybe he's a really good coach, but I honestly can't really judge that based off him coaching this team. He's basically coaching an allstar team. But he sails into the HOF? Okay I guess whatever.

are you aware it's the Basketball HOF? He was a stud in college, won a gold medal, had a sustainable NBA career, and has now won a championship as a head coach.

That is literally an automatic shoe-in to the Basketball HOF.

LOL that is not a HOFer. Decent NBA career, a gold medal in 86 that's not an olympic gold medal. He was never the best player on any of his teams. As a coach he might get in if he wins multiple titles but he is not even close to a HOFer as a player.

yao ming at least made all nba teams and all star teams. steve kerr in the NCAA averaged 11.2 points in his 4 years at Arizona and made one ap 2nd team. In the nba he averaged 6 points per game and only started 30 nba games in his career. as for the gold medal he didn't even finish because he blew out his knee. There are hundreds of more deserving guys until potentially his coaching carrer allows him to make it.

If there was a college basketball HOF he wouldn't be in it. If there was a international basketball HOF he wouldn't be in it. If there was an NBA HOF he wouldn't be in it. Combine them and he's not a HOFer

One can make a clear case against/for Yao Ming with his watered down numbers. But, Steve Kerr?!!!
STOP IT!!!! Steve Kerr was weak!! He had ZERO defense! He couldn't run, he couldn't jump, he could only shoot. AND ONLY SHOOT IF HE WAS W-I-D-E OPEN!

Someone must have not reminded you that it doesn't take much to be an NBA HOF'er. You don't strictly have to be a player or coach. Just someone who has accomplished a lot in the basketball world. Three point champion, relatively decent college career, FIBA champion, he will no doubt be a COTY for many years, and he will no doubt win a few more rings.. dude, this guy will accomplish so much in every facet of the NBA game. It doesn't matter how great he was as a player.. his coaching ability will skyrocket him into the HOF. Just look at who are already in the HOF.. it doesn't take much, really.

Fantastic commentator (which people get into the hall for), NBA Executive (GM for the Suns), and incredibly media friendly and savvy (might win him some votes).

people get it. Sabonis' great international career matters. christian laettner's great college career matters. same with Ralph Sampson. Kerr has never been great anywhere. He was a good college player and bit piece in the NBA. He has been a head coach for under 2 seasons. Kerr has not had a HOF career. if he goes on to be an all time coach OK but that is the only way he is getting in

Rookie coach wins championship. Role player hits game winning, and championship winning shots on 5 teams.

Yeah.

As a player or coach though? As a coach... his resume is not long enough. As a player, not impressive individual stats outside of 3pt%. Together... yes.

PSD should force people to learn to read the OPENING POST. We are taking into account that Steve Kerr will continue being a coach of this dominant Warriors until his career ends. If he can do that, there is a 100% chance he gets in... because there is no way he won't win more rings and COTY and God knows what other record he will break with that team. So this is an easy yes... some of you can't seem to comprehend that.

Do people realize you are put into the HOF in separate categories and it's not rolled into one?

He's not good enough as a player
He's not good enough as a coach (yet)
He's not good enough as a contributor
He's not good enough as an analyst/play-by-play/media

Easily, so easily the answer is no.

Why even bring Steve Kerr name up then?!! He may get fired over the summer. Luke Walton may take his place on the bench. Only thing I know about Steve Kerr is: he had obvious inside connections to get the Warriors coaching job. Open jump shot shooter only, and he got punched in practice by MJ. THAT'S ABOUT IT!!

Do you know why he got punched by MJ? He got under his skin during practice - not many people can do that.


“I took exception to something he said,” Kerr says. “So I was talking back and I don’t think Michael appreciated that ... and we got in the lane and he gave me a forearm shiver to the chest and I pushed him back. And next thing you know, our teammates were pulling him off of me.”


“It was a totally different relationship from that point on,” Kerr says.

There was mutual respect, with Kerr feeling that Jordan trusted him on the court more in important situations. In Jackson’s new book, "Eleven Rings," he says the punch was a wake-up call for Jordan and a turning point for the championship-winning 1995-96 Bulls who won 72 regular-season games, a record that will likely never be broken. Who knows what the wake-up call would have been if the fight never took place? Who knows if there even would have been one?

Except the question assumes that Kerr will continue his dominance as the coach of the GSW. So based on that assumption, he will undoubtedly be in the HOF.

You can get into the HOF as a GM and as a game announcer too.

He's done every job at a high level.

There is a reasonable chance but he's got to stick around into his 60s.
