He was an outstanding All-City shooting guard at Palisades HS. His decorated playing career then brought him to Lute Olson and the University of Arizona, where Kerr became a second team All-American in 1988 when he set an NCAA record for 3-point percentage in a season (114–199, 57.3%) and helped U of A to its first Final Four. He then went onto a successful NBA playing career where he won five championships with the Chicago Bulls and the San Antonio Spurs in a career spanning from 1989-2003. Kerr holds the NBA record for highest three-point shooting percentage (45.4%) for any player with at least 250 three pointers made in NBA history.

After retiring, he served as General Manager of the Phoenix Suns as well as serving as a broadcast analyst for Turner Network Television (TNT) on two different occasions. Kerr then turned to coaching and has quickly become one of the most highly respected coaches in the NBA. He led the Golden State Warriors to the 2015 NBA championship; giving him six NBA rings. His 2016 Warriors’ team set an all-time NBA record for wins in a single season with 73 earning him NBA Coach of the Year honors.
