As one of MJ’s former teammates, Warriors coach Steve Kerr is particularly qualified to make comparisons between him and some of today’s biggest stars.
Most recently, in the context of Steph Curry, Kerr Jordan mentioned that her constant show of greatness has become a routine for fans around the world:
“It reminds me of MJ because you just get used to the brilliance and excellence that somehow it blends in with everything else.” Kerr said about ESPN. “It just becomes routine. It’s crazy to say that what you see is otherworldly and yet somehow you are expecting it. That is probably the purest sign of greatness. “
For years, Curry has miraculously lit up the league, often to the amazement of viewers and commentators.
With tons of broken records and a career average of 24.1 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.6 rebounds per game with 43% downtown shots, Steph is the guy who always does his best. He’s the type that Warriors have consistently relied on for nearly a decade, and even now he’s still at the forefront of his game.
While MJ was obviously different in many ways, he and Curry share a level of consistency that very few players have ever been able to maintain.
Despite the amazing things Steph has done, it has become normal for fans who are likely to take it for granted.
It’s the mark of true greatness, and Kerr definitely took note of it.
