Steve Kerr talked about the moment he found out the Golden State Warriors were on their way to greatness.
Kerr revealed that moment was when they were about to eliminate the Houston Rockets in the 2015 Western Conference Finals.
“For me, the moment was when we beat Houston in the West Finals in 2015. We had maybe a 12-point lead with about 45 seconds left, and I was standing up near halfcourt, kind of leaning against the scorer’s table.
There was a dead ball, and that was the moment when we realized we were going to win, the crowd realized it, our team realized it. And I just soaked it all in, I remember just looking (at) the entire panoramic view around Oracle and just soaking it all. It was such an incredible moment to be heading back to the Finals for the first time in 40 years,” George said on 95.7 The Game, via Alex Didion of NBC Sports.
Kerr led Golden State to five straight NBA Finals (2015-2019) and three titles (2015, 2017, 2018).
