Stephen Douglas Kerr (born September 27, 1965) is an American professional basketball coach and former player. He is the current head coach of the Golden State Warriors.[1] Kerr is an eight-time NBA champion, having won five titles as a player (three with the Chicago Bulls and two with the San Antonio Spurs) as well as three with the Warriors as a head coach. Kerr has the highest career three-point percentage (45.4%) in NBA history for any player with at least 250 three-pointers made. He also held the NBA record for highest three-point percentage in a season at 52.4% until the record was broken by Kyle Korver in 2010.

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. On April 13, 2016, the Warriors broke the record for the most wins in an NBA season, breaking a record previously held by Kerr's 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls. The Warriors returned to the Finals for three straight years, losing in 2016 and winning again in 2017 and 2018.

Early life

Kerr was born in Beirut, Lebanon to Malcolm H. Kerr, an American academic who specialized in the Middle East, and his wife, Ann (Zwicker).[2] He has three siblings.[3] His grandfather, Stanley Kerr, volunteered with the Near East Relief after the Armenian Genocide and rescued women and orphans in Aleppo and Marash before eventually settling in Beirut.[4] Kerr spent much of his childhood in Lebanon and other Middle Eastern countries. He attended Cairo American College in Egypt, the American Community School in Beirut, Lebanon, and Palisades High School (now Palisades Charter High School) in Los Angeles.

Malcolm Kerr was killed by the Islamic Jihad (later, elements of Islamic Jihad formed Hezbollah) on the morning of January 18, 1984 at the age of 52 while he was serving as president of the American University of Beirut.[5][6][7][8] He was shot twice in the back of his head, by gunmen using suppressed handguns, in the hallway outside his office.[3][6][7][8] Kerr was 18 years old at the time, and a college freshman;[5] regarding his father's death, he has said: "Before my father was killed, my life was impenetrable. Bad things happened to other people."[2] The Kerr family sued the Iranian government under the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996.[9] While warming up with the Arizona Wildcats for a game at arch-rival Arizona State in 1988, Kerr had to deal with many ASU Sun Devil fans in the crowd chanting "PLO" and "your father's history."[10][11] Though tearful, Kerr led the Wildcats to victory, scoring 20 points in the first half, making all six of his three-point attempts.[11] The athletic director of Arizona State, Charles Harris, sent a letter of apology to Kerr a few days later.[12]

Kerr graduated from the University of Arizona in 1988 with a Bachelor of General Studies, with emphasis on history, sociology and English.[13][14]

Collegiate career

Minimally recruited out of high school, Kerr played basketball for the University of Arizona from 1983 to 1988. In the summer of 1986, Kerr was named to the USA Basketball team that competed in the FIBA World Championship in Spain. The team was the last American Men's Senior Team composed strictly of amateur players to capture a gold medal. He blew out his knee in the tournament, usually a career-ending injury, forcing him to miss an entire season (1986–87) at Arizona. After returning to the team, Kerr became a fan favorite due to his leadership, his ability to triumph in adversity, and long-range shooting. Virtually every time he got the ball, the Arizona fans would chant "STEEEVE KERRRR." It became a rallying cry. He helped the Wildcats reach the Final Four of the NCAA Division I basketball tournament in 1988 along with fellow All-American teammate Sean Elliott. Kerr also set an NCAA record for 3-point percentage in a season (114–199, 57.3%).

Kerr was selected by the Phoenix Suns in the second round of the 1988 NBA draft. He was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 1989. He spent over three seasons (1989–92) there and then part of the 1992–93 season with the Orlando Magic.

Chicago Bulls

In 1993, he signed with the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls made the playoffs in the 1993–94 and 1994–95 seasons, but without Michael Jordan's presence for all of 1994 and much of 1995, the team could not advance to the Finals. However, with Jordan back full-time for the 1995–96 season, the Bulls set a then NBA-record of 72–10 and defeated the Seattle SuperSonics in the 1996 NBA Finals.

Kerr played a major part of the Bulls' championship victory in the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz. In the final seconds of Game 6 with the score tied at 86, he took a pass from Jordan and hit the title-winner. The Bulls won, earning the franchise's fifth title. Kerr also won the 3-Point Shootout at the 1997 All-Star Game.

In the last minute of Game 2 of the 1998 NBA Finals against Utah, Kerr missed a 3-pointer, grabbed his own rebound and made a pass to Jordan who made a crucial three-point play, putting them in the lead for good. The play helped Chicago win the game and tie the series at 1. The Bulls won the series in 6 games.

San Antonio Spurs

In January 1999, Kerr was acquired by the San Antonio Spurs in a sign-and-trade deal with the Bulls, whereby Chuck Person and a first-round pick in the 2000 NBA draft was sent to Chicago.[16] The Spurs reached 1999 NBA Finals and won their first NBA Championship with a 4–1 series victory over the New York Knicks. Kerr became one of two players to win four straight NBA titles without being a part of the 1960s Boston Celtics dynasty—the other being Frank Saul, who won four straight with Rochester and Minneapolis from 1951–54.[17] Kerr and Saul are also the only two players in NBA history to have won two championships with two different teams in consecutive seasons.[18]

Portland Trail Blazers

Kerr was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers alongside Derek Anderson on July 24, 2001 in a deal that brought Steve Smith to the Spurs. He would remain in Portland for the 2001–02 season, playing in 65 games.

Return to the Spurs

After his brief stint in Portland, he was traded back to San Antonio, along with Erick Barkley and a 2003 2nd-round pick, in exchange for Charles Smith, Amal McCaskill, and Antonio Daniels on August 2, 2002. He supported the Spurs from the bench in nearly every game (75) the following year, in what would be his final season in the league.[19] In Game 6 of the 2003 Western Conference Finals against the Dallas Mavericks, Kerr made four second-half three-pointers that helped eliminate Dallas. The Spurs eventually won the NBA championship by beating the New Jersey Nets in the 2003 NBA Finals, 4–2.

Kerr announced his retirement after the 2003 NBA Finals. He played 910 regular-season games but started only 30 of them, 20 of those games coming in the 1991–92 season. His career totals are: 5,437 points (6 ppg), 1,060 rebounds (1.2 rpg), and 1,658 assists (1.8 apg). He also retired as the league's all-time leader in three-point shooting percentage for a season (.524 in 1994–95) and career (.454).

Post-playing career Television analyst Kerr in 2013

In 2003, Kerr became a broadcast analyst for Turner Network Television (TNT), offering commentary alongside renowned analyst Marv Albert. During his tenure, he performed a segment sponsored by Coors Light called Steve's Refreshing Thoughts in which he brought up interesting facts in NBA history. This segment continued through sponsorship, and became known as Steve Wonders, sponsored by Sprint. In the same time period, Kerr also contributed to Yahoo! as an NBA commentator.

He has provided his voice for the in-game commentary of EA Sports video games NBA Live 06, NBA Live 07, NBA Live 08, NBA Live 09 and NBA Live 10 with Albert. He has also provided his voice as a color analyst for NBA 2K12, NBA 2K13, NBA 2K14 and NBA 2K15. He remains a commentator in NBA 2K15 despite becoming the Golden State Warriors coach for the 2014–15 season several months prior to the game's release.

Kerr left broadcasting in 2007 to work as a general manager for the Phoenix Suns, but it was confirmed on June 28, 2010 that he would return as an NBA analyst for TNT starting with the 2010–11 NBA season. Since 2011, Kerr has also called the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship on Turner Sports and CBS, teaming up with lead broadcasters Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg for the First Four and Final Four games, and with Albert in other rounds.

Kerr was a regular contributor to the website Grantland from 2011 until it closed in 2015.

Phoenix Suns front office

On April 15, 2004, Kerr was announced as a member of a potential group of buyers that would acquire his old team, the Suns, from Jerry Colangelo for $300 million. He became part of Suns management, acting as a consultant.[20][21] During the 2006 NBA All-Star Weekend, he was a member of the San Antonio team that won the Shooting Stars Competition.[22]

On June 2, 2007, Kerr announced his departure from his broadcasting position at TNT and his commentating position at Yahoo! to assume duties as the general manager of the Phoenix Suns beginning with the 2007–2008 season. On February 6, 2008, reports surfaced that Kerr was planning to trade Suns forward Shawn Marion and guard Marcus Banks to the Miami Heat in exchange for Shaquille O'Neal, which he did. The Suns were eliminated by the San Antonio Spurs in five games in the first round of the playoffs.

Kerr in 2008

On December 10, 2008, Kerr continued to remake the Suns roster by trading away Boris Diaw, Raja Bell, and Sean Singletary to the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for Jason Richardson, Jared Dudley, and the Bobcats' 2010 second-round draft pick, which was used to draft Gani Lawal of Georgia Tech.[23] On June 25, 2009, Kerr traded O'Neal to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Ben Wallace, Sasha Pavlovic, a future second-round draft pick and cash.

On May 5, 2010, the Suns wore Los Suns jerseys in Game 2 against the Spurs to be united against the controversial Arizona immigration law. Kerr himself compared the law to Nazi Germany.[24]

On June 15, 2010, Kerr stepped down as president and general manager of the Suns, but still owned a 1% share of the Suns' organization that he kept until 2014.[citation needed]

Head coaching career Golden State Warriors (2014–present)

On May 14, 2014, Kerr reached an agreement to become the head coach for the Golden State Warriors, succeeding Mark Jackson.[25][26] Kerr coached in the 2014 Summer League for the Warriors. During the 2014–15 season, the team's offense employed elements of the triangle offense from his playing days in Chicago under Phil Jackson, the spacing and pace of Gregg Popovich in San Antonio, and the uptempo principles Mike D'Antoni and later Alvin Gentry used in Phoenix when Kerr was the GM.[27][28]

After the Warriors beat the Houston Rockets to win their 14th consecutive game, Kerr became the first coach to start his career with a 19–2 record.[29] This beat out Al Cervi and his 18–2 start with the Syracuse Nationals. On December 10, 2014, Kerr became the first NBA rookie head coach to win 21 of his first 23 games.[30] He was named the head coach of the Western Conference team for the 2015 NBA All-Star Game after Golden State had the best record in the conference.[31] On April 4, the Warriors beat the Dallas Mavericks 123–110 to clinch home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, and Kerr got his 63rd win of the season to become the highest winning rookie head coach in NBA history, passing Tom Thibodeau and his 62 wins with the Chicago Bulls in the 2010–11 season. In the NBA Coach of the Year voting, Kerr was runner-up to Mike Budenholzer.

The Warriors ultimately finished with one of the best regular seasons in NBA history, and the greatest in the team's 69-year history. Golden State ended with an overall record of 67–15, becoming the 10th team to win 67 or more games in a single season. It was the first time the Warriors had ever won as many as 60 games in a season; their previous high was 59 in the 1975–76 season. The Warriors also ended with a 39–2 home record, which is tied for the second best home record in NBA history. The Warriors were first in defensive efficiency for the season and second in offensive efficiency, barely missing the mark that the Julius Erving–led Sixers achieved by being first in both offensive and defensive efficiency. They became the first team in NBA history to have two win streaks over 15 at home (18 and 19).

In the opening round of the playoffs against the New Orleans Pelicans, Kerr led the Warriors to their first four-game playoff sweep since the 1975 NBA Finals. Afterwards, the team surpassed the Memphis Grizzlies (4–2, in the second round). Down 2–1 in the series, Kerr made an unconventional adjustment in Game 4 to leave the Grizzlies' Tony Allen open and have his defender, center Andrew Bogut, guard the interior. His strategy was lauded after Allen, Memphis' best wing defender, was benched and limited to 16 minutes after missing wide open shots.[32][33][34] The Warriors then defeated the Houston Rockets (4–1, in the Western Conference Finals), making the NBA Finals for the first time in 40 years.

The Warriors faced the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals. Kerr and rival coach David Blatt were both in their first season as NBA head coaches, and this was the first time a pair of rookie head coaches faced each other in the NBA Finals since the NBA's first year of existence, in 1947 with Eddie Gottlieb of the Philadelphia Warriors and Harold Olsen of the Chicago Stags competing.[35] After the Warriors went down 2–1 to Cleveland, Kerr started swingman Andre Iguodala in place of Bogut, jump-starting their stagnant offense for a 103–82 road win that evened the series. It was Iguodala's first start of the season, and the small unit came to be known as the Death Lineup. After the game, Kerr admitted to lying to the press in response to pregame questions about potential changes to his starting lineup.[36] The Warriors went on to win the championship in six games, defeating the Cavaliers, 4–2, in the series, to give Kerr his sixth championship and first as a head coach.

After the first two days of the defending champion Warriors' training camp, Kerr took an indefinite leave of absence to rehabilitate his back, which had caused problems since the 2015 NBA Finals.[37] Around this time, assistant coach Luke Walton assumed Kerr's coaching duties. Kerr missed all of 2015 and most of January 2016, although technically the NBA credited Walton's win-loss record to Kerr.[38] Kerr said "I think it's ridiculous", when asked about getting all of Walton's wins.[39] On January 22, 2016, Kerr returned to coaching after missing 43 games, but warned he might need to miss games occasionally if there was a recurrence of the headaches and pain related to the spinal fluid leak that sidelined him. The Warriors went 39–4 with interim coach Luke Walton.[40] The Warriors went 34-5 after Kerr returned to coaching. Golden State broke the 1995–96 Chicago Bulls 72–10 record by winning 73 games.[41] Kerr became the first person in NBA history to be a part of 70-win teams as a player and head coach. He was named 2015–16 NBA Coach of the Year.[42] Kerr would lead the Warriors to the 2016 NBA Finals where they would again face the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Warriors lost in seven games.

On November 20, 2016, the NBA announced that Kerr had been fined $25,000 for public criticism of officiating during a radio interview with KNBR 680 on November 17.[43] Kerr missed time during the 2017 playoffs due to recurring back issues.[44] Associate head coach Mike Brown has acted as acting head coach during periods of Kerr's absence, and Brown continued head coaching into the playoffs leading the Warriors to a 12–0 record in the postseason. Kerr returned for the 2017 NBA Finals where he led the Warriors to victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in five games. The Warriors finished the playoffs with a 16–1 record, the best postseason winning percentage in NBA history.[45] Kerr is the fourth coach in NBA history to win two championships in his first three seasons of coaching. Kerr won his third championship as a head coach when the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2018 NBA Finals in four games to give Kerr his eighth championship of his career.

Kerr is third on the Warriors' all-time wins list behind Don Nelson and Eddie Gottlieb, and only Nelson has won more games in the West Coast portion of Warriors history.

Personal life

He married Margot Kerr, his college sweetheart, in 1990. They have three children: Nick, Maddy and Matthew.[46]

Since the conclusion of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Kerr has been critical of Donald Trump and his election victory. In an interview following the election, Kerr voiced the opinion that Trump's rise to power was based on insults against women and minorities. He compared Trump's campaign performances and the crude responses of his supporters to The Jerry Springer Show. Although he expressed hope that Trump would be a good president, he made clear his "disgust" with Trump's disrespectful public discourse and his disappointment with the election results.[47]

Kerr has been a strong supporter of gun control.[48]

The Team Building Strategies of Steve Kerr: How the NBA Head Coach of the Golden State Warriors Creates a Winning Culture
The Team Building Strategies of Steve Kerr: How the NBA Head Coach of the Golden State Warriors Creates a Winning Culture
Learn the management principles of the 2016 NBA Coach of the Year.  Since Steve Kerr took over as the Golden State Warriors Head Coach, the team has been on a historic run. In his first season as head coach, Kerr led the Warriors to the NBA championship. In his second year, he coached the team to the best NBA regular season record in history, surpassing the record previously held by Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. In addition, he has coached and guided Stephen Curry to the NBA MVP award for two straight years. How does he do this?

In Steve Kerr: The Inspiring Life and Leadership Lessons of One of Basketball's Greatest Coaches, you will learn the story of one of basketball's premier coaches, Steve Kerr. Since joining the Warriors organization in the summer of 2014, Steve Kerr has catapulted the Golden State Warriors to become a perennial championship contender. He has demonstrated admirable leadership in his ability to create a sustainable system where players play like family and have fun. Some could argue the Golden State Warriors' approach to basketball is an evolution of what has made the San Antonio Spurs so successful for two decades. It is disciplined, yet loose at the same time. While he is still early in his coaching career, Steve Kerr will undoubtedly go down as one of the most effective coaches of all time when he retires, mainly because of his ability to relate to his players and maintain their composure in the most clutch in-game moments. There are a number of key leadership lessons that can be learned from Steve Kerr, such as maintaining your humility, maximizing the potential of each individual player, and communicating often with your team. Whether you're a basketball player or a coach looking for inspiration, this book will help you discover the incredible story of Steve Kerr and the many leadership lessons that can be learned from studying his success. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Background and History NBA Career as a Player Life After the NBA Steve Kerr's Head Coaching Career What Makes Steve Kerr a Good Leader How Steve Kerr Maximizes Player Potential What is Steve Kerr's System Key Takeaways Conclusion and Steve Kerr's Legacy An excerpt from the book: Rarely do NBA head coaches immediately make an impact in the league where all the greatest minds in basketball coach the best athletes of the sport. It takes months or even years to try to convince the players and entire organization to buy into the system you seek to sell. It would take even longer to perfect that system while several other teams in the league are brandishing strategies and plays they have been using for several years already. What is even more difficult is to try to lead a young team that has minimal playoff experience on your first stint as a coach at any level of basketball. But the Golden State Warriors' Steve Kerr did it. He immediately made an impact in a league that already had established title favorites coming into his first season as a head coach of the Warriors. He would shake the heads of contenders, critics, and fans alike by leading a young and inexperienced Golden State Warriors to a remarkable 67-15 regular season record and an eventual NBA title in his first season.

Golden Days: West's Lakers, Steph's Warriors, and the California Dreamers Who Reinvented Basketball
Golden Days: West's Lakers, Steph's Warriors, and the California Dreamers Who Reinvented Basketball
The bestselling author of Dream Team tells the interconnected stories of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors and the early-1970s Los Angeles Lakers, two extraordinary teams playing in extraordinary times and linked by one extraordinary man: Jerry West.In Golden Days, acclaimed sports journalist Jack McCallum uses two teams—today’s Golden State Warriors and the L.A. Lakers of the early 1970s—to trace the dynamic history of the National Basketball Association, which for much of the last half-century has marched memorably through the state of California. Tying together the two strands of McCallum’s story is Hall of Famer Jerry West, the ferociously competitive Laker guard who later became one of the key architects of the Warriors. With “the Logo” as his guide, McCallum takes us deep into the locker rooms and front offices of these two era-defining teams, leveraging the access and authority he has amassed over his forty-year career to create a picture of the cultural juggernaut that the NBA has become.   Featuring up-close-and-personal portraits of some of the biggest names in basketball history, from Wilt Chamberlain to Steve Kerr to the transcendent duo of Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, Golden Days is a history, not just of a changing sport, but a changing America. Featuring vintage photos and contemporary shots of NBA greats including Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Pat Riley, and more. “Full of juicy anecdotes and wagging fun . . . McCallum holds legitimate claim for being the greatest NBA writer of all time.”—The Wall Street Journal“Only one writer I know could pull all this together: two iconic champions, two roundball revolutions, and the deadeye legend whose silhouette binds them both. If basketball writing had a logo, it would be the image of Jack McCallum.”—Lee Jenkins, senior writer, Sports Illustrated “I had the pleasure of playing with, coaching with, and coaching for Jerry West, one of the great influences in the history of the NBA. Golden Days gets at the essence of the man as a player and an executive, while also exploring today’s game through the Golden State Warriors.”—Pat Riley, president, Miami Heat “An original, fascinating, and breezy read . . . With his classic eye for detail and deadpan wit, Jack McCallum connects two of the greatest teams in sports history and manages to unearth new details about some of the giants of the game.”—Zach Lowe, senior writer, ESPN

Betaball: How Silicon Valley and Science Built One of the Greatest Basketball Teams in History
Betaball: How Silicon Valley and Science Built One of the Greatest Basketball Teams in History
The definitive, inside account of how the Golden State Warriors built a basketball juggernaut from the inside out"A smart, breezy read." -- The Wall Street JournalNamed one of 2017's best tech books by WIRED: "A deeply reported look at seven dramatic years of the Warriors' team history, zeroing in on vivid characters and suspense-filled moments to deliver a gripping narrative. ... A compelling and important case study of how startup-style thinking can be applied outside the tech industry.""Buckle up for the sports book of the year." -- Don Van Natta Jr., ESPN investigative reporter, New York Times bestselling author, and Pulitzer Prize winner"Instructive reading for every coach and every player in every sport -- and fun, too." -- Kirkus Reviews"An insightful portrait of one of the all-time great NBA teams." -- Booklist"Malinowski describes the on-court action with humorous flair while also capturing the sophistication required to properly run a professional sports team." -- Publishers WeeklyMoneyball meets The City Game in this compelling look at how the world champion Golden State Warriors embraced savvy business practices, next-generation science, and Silicon Valley's technocentric culture to not only produce the most talented basketball team ever assembled but revolutionize the modern NBA. Betaball is the definitive, inside account of how the Warriors -- under the leadership of venture capitalist Joe Lacob and Hollywood producer Peter Guber -- quickly became one of the most remarkable success stories ever witnessed in sports or business. In just five years, the duo turned a declining franchise with no immediate hope into the NBA's dominant force, facilitated the rise of All-Star point guard Stephen Curry, produced the best single-season record in league history, and won two championships over a three-year span. Lacob and Guber (along with their executives, coaches, and players) did so by urging employees to speak out; encouraging cross-collaboration; investing in bold, new technologies; and never resisting the urge to innovate, no matter how successful they became. In the tech industry, the term for this development stage -- when your product isn't quite fully baked, so you're always in flux and open to change yet focused on the end-goal -- is "beta." By operating in "beta," the Warriors morphed into a model organization for American professional sports, instituting the best workplace principles found inside the world's most successful corporations and instilling a top-down organizational ethos that allowed all of their employees to thrive, from the front office to the free-throw line. With in-depth access and meticulous reporting on and off the court, acclaimed journalist Erik Malinowski recounts a gripping tale of worlds colliding, a team's reinvention, ordinary people being pushed to extraordinary heights, and the Golden State Warriors' unending quest to remain the best.

Golden State Warriors: Strength in Numbers
Golden State Warriors: Strength in Numbers
How do you build a champion? For the Golden State Warriors, it started with a vision. That vision was of a team that Head Coach Steve Kerr described as having the magic that occurs when a group of players, coaches, and an organization come together and achieve something special. After 40 years of waiting, Golden State Warrior fans have witnessed that magic. STRENGTH IN NUMBERS is the Golden State Warriors official team commemorative, celebrating the historic games, plays, and personalities that brought an NBA championship back to the Bay Area. This is the story of how the Warriors came together to realize their potential, becoming a powder keg on offense and unleashing synchronized chaos on defense. The Warriors unique blend of efficiency on both ends of the floor resulted in a franchise-record 67-win season, a 16-game winning streak, and a 39-2 home record powered by the most electric crowd in basketball. The best sports photographers in the business provide the definitive perspective on this record-setting season, chronicling such landmark events as the team s 26-point comeback win over the Boston Celtics, Klay Thompson s NBA-record 37 points in a single quarter, Stephen Curry s miracle 3-pointer to force overtime against the Pelicans in Game 3 of the Conference Quarterfinals, the team s relentless defensive stand against LeBron James one-man wrecking crew in the Finals, and the celebration of Warrior fans around the world as the final buzzer sounded and returned the Larry O Brien Trophy to the Bay Area. With original contributions by team and media insiders, STRENGTH IN NUMBERS is a tribute to the sacrifice, determination, and, most importantly, teamwork that defined the magical NBA Champion Golden State Warriors.
