Steve Kerr

Short bio: 

Stephen Douglas "Steve" Kerr (born September 27, 1965) is a retired professional basketball player and the current head coach of the Golden State Warriors. Kerr is a six-time NBA champion, winning three championships with the Chicago Bulls, two with the San Antonio Spurs, and one as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors. He and Frank Saul are the only two players in NBA history to have won championships with two different teams in consecutive seasons. Kerr shot 45.4% from 3-point range over his career, which is the highest in NBA history for any player with at least 2,000 shot attempts.

On June 2, 2007, the Phoenix Suns named Kerr the team's President of Basketball Operations and General Manager. Kerr helped Managing Partner Robert Sarver buy the Suns in 2004 and became one of Sarver's trusted basketball advisors. Kerr announced his retirement from the Suns in June 2010. Afterwards, Kerr returned as a color commentator for NBA on TNT until 2014 when he pursued a career in coaching.

On May 14, 2014, the Golden State Warriors named Kerr the team's head coach. On April 4, 2015, with a win over the Dallas Mavericks, Kerr broke the NBA record for the most regular season wins for a rookie coach. The Warriors went on to win the 2015 NBA Finals, making Kerr the first rookie coach to win a championship since Pat Riley in the 1982 NBA Finals.

I had a very similar thing happened to me after a surgery where spinal fluid was leaking. I had horrible headaches. They were able to go in and do what they called a blood patch. They drew blood out of my arm and injected it into my back in my spine and somehow the blood fills the space and heels whatever it was going on. My migraine stopped immediately just a thought if it's not something that they have already tried with you.

Leonard,
That is exactly what I had also! I had a spinal tap and it was TERRIBLE!!!!! I had severe migraines and constantly threw up!!!! I couldn't be vertical I had to lay down!! I went to Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ and did a blood patch also!! After, I was back to normal and felt great!! It was life changing!!!!! Hope this helps Steve Kerr!!!! I hope you feel better soon!!

Steve I wish you a full and speedy recovery. Nobody should have to endure what you've gone thru.
Hi, I've suffered from debilitating headaches for the last few years. Thank gd we have ruled out all major issues via imaging but the one thing that sticks out is that I have multiple herniated discs in my back. I'm convinced that this is causing the headaches. No doctors will listen to me. The headaches are unbearable. Can this all be from my back somehow? Anybody with similar experience? Nothing helps.

You may want to try CranioSacral Therapy. It's a non-invasive modality that has been known to help. You can find out more info at www.upledger.com. This site will also help you find a local practitioner.

Dear Sir, I do understand the game of basketball, from a fan's point of view. Without the fan's there is no game, with that said, I love your team, I believe in them, but my heart is breaking. The actions of Draymond Green are not the same as regular season, his demeanor is more angry, or ego driven. Now I say this with respect, I think Draymond is an incredible player on the greatest team in the history of basketball. He is a driving force for the rest of the team, his actions send a ripple affect to his team mates. I believe your team will find themselves, but Draymond needs to fine himself now, with all the respect in the world. Because I care! Arturo Davila

Steve . . . Please don't tarnish your awesome playing and coaching careers by displaying a jaw dropping ignorance of the US Constitution . . specifically the 2nd Amendment.

Kerr is absolutely right about guns. The 2nd Amendment leaves much more room to regulate guns... and they should be. Thank you, Coach, from a Cavs fan, for expressing your opinion. My respect for you continues to grow!

Steve, I will never forget when Jordan passed you the ball, and you made the basket to win the game.
I really do respect you for that. You didn't freeze up ! My concern is the fact that you backup Kaepernick,
he is 100 % wrong. You are right about him having the right to protest, but he still crossed the line. There are too many Black violent thugs in our Cities. I will never forget the Case of Stephanie Neiman, that poor young girl was kidnapped, raped, and then buried alive by Violent Black Thugs. I know that there are some very good Black people out there, but the police have to deal with the bad ones, and during some of these encounters the police have had to use deadly force.

Please consider starting Durant(5) Green(4) Iguodala(3) Thompson(2) and Curry(1)...

I love your team and all that the Goldenstate Warriors do.

Mario,Loosing mo hurt team defense as we now have no one who is strong under the basket. KD may be great but he isn't a center. Can't trade for a center Mid-season? With Igudala starting the line up is not big enough defensively or on the boards.

You spoke at your press conference about how disgusted you are with Trump, esp when facing your wife and daughter (I'm assuming because of his comments).
Did you ever consider how you would face your family is Hillary won ? You would have to explain how Bill (who would be living in the White House) not only commented about but actually lied about sex with all his aides in the White House being a sexual predator, how he travelled with Jeff Epstein to Epsteins sex slave island to have sex with underage girls and how Hillary went after ALL the woman bill was taking advantage of. If you think that would be an easier argument, your sadly mistaken. I live in the Bay Area and was a Warrior fan. You brought politics to the game, which was a huge mistake and now I no longer will support, watch or attend your games.

My son lost everything in a fire on November 15th 2016. Please see link. One of his most prized possessions was a picture he had of Draymond Green. It was destroyed in the fire. He received that picture from Draymond at a field trip to city Hall in San Francisco. Is there a way you can send us another signed picture to replace that one.

I also experienced the same thing when my son was born via C section. To stop the pain, they drew blood from my arm and injected it into my spine. There was instant relief. Just thought this might be helpful or they may have already tried it.

I'm a diehard Golden St fan. In a close late game situation like against Cleveland why not put Kevin Durant on Kyrie Irving. KD has more length than Thompson. KD is athletic to stay with Kyrie and force him into a higher launch point. I wouldn't worry about LeBron because he DOES NOT want the pressure of taking the last shot. Iggy can hold him just fine. But PLEASE use KD on defense more in key sutuations. I have been more impressed with KD defense. I knew he could play offense. Go Warriors

To Steve Kerr,
I am 60 years old and been a Warriors fan since a young boy. Your a great coach but lack critical thinking skills when it comes to politics.
Have you read Trumps executive order banning 7 counties from the USA? Have you read the existing Federal law on the books reguarding alians and the presidents right to ban them or groups of them from entering the USA?
My guess is probably not. Because if you did then you logically would not be speaking against the executive order. First take your eyes and read the order and immigration law for your self.
No where in the order does it mention the 7 nations banned. It only refers to a 2013 ruling by the Obama administration that identifies those 7 nations as being a serious threat to the USA.
Stop letting the main stream media be your teacher or guide. Trump is fulfilling his campaign promises. He is protecting all USA citizens. Even those who don't practice critical thinking skills like you...

Congratulation Coach Kerr & the Golden State Warriors on an outstanding basketball season. With the utmost respect you are 57-14. Let's aspire to close out this basketball season with a 68-14 by playing Man-To-Man defense to stop your opponent outside shot and dribble penetration. Meanwhile, I have a request. I like the GSW to do the following drill 5-days a week from both end of the court "shoot 100 shots from the following spots on the basketball court: backboard, backcourt, ball side, baseline, basket, blocks, center circle, court, cylinder, downcourt, end line, floor, free throw lane, free throw line, front court, game clock, hashmark, help side, high post, hoop, in-the-paint, key, lane, low post, midcourt line, midline, out of bounds, paint, perimeter, post, shot clock, sidelines, strong side, ten-second line, three-point line, three-second lane, time line, top of the key, and weak side. Then challenge yourself (GSW) in transition basketball from each spot fast. THE 2017 NBA CHAMPIONS GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS!!!!

Best wishes to The great Steve Kerr and a quick recovery in time to put Cleveland away.

1 tip to stop Lebron - drop back, pack the paint and let him shoot wide open.

There is one line I hope to hear from Coach "I'll be ready" as he was in 97.

Steve, I and my whole family are so saddened by your illness. We are season ticket holders and follow you and the team closely in the news. We are all fervently hoping that your pain recedes and resolves quickly. I feel that you are a great coach and a great guy and you have our best wishes for a speedy full recovery.

I am so sorry for the pain you are experiencing. I have two grown daughters who both had scoliosis. One had a severe double curve and had spinal fusion surgery at age 18. While her side effects were difficult, she now in her early 40's is doing well and has had 2 children by C-section since normal childbirth was not possible. My older daughter had a milder curve which "supposedly" did not need further treatment back in her teens after she wore a brace for two years. Now, in her mid-40's, she has had ruptured disc surgery after experiencing severe pain. Now the same disc is in danger of rupturing again. She can only sit and lie down. She can also walk slowly, but cannot stand still at all without pain. She takes pain medication daily and is going to UC Davis looking for options other that spinal fusion. I am so sorry for your spinal fluid leak, but at the same time have realized that this could have happened to either of my daughters during their procedures. You are in my prayers for a complete recovery.

Wishing you a full recovery. We met at the Warrior's celebration at the White House last year. I'm still working at my recovery. Hope yours is going well.
