As it stands, Steve Kerr has the reputation of being one of the most influential and authoritative figures in the NBA.
The Golden State Warriors are one of the most successful franchises in NBA history. Outside of the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics, the Warriors have won the most championships to their name.
Much of this success is due to the trinity of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green who revolutionized the game of basketball as we know it. Still, it was Steve Kerr who made the franchise flow better.
The Warriors’ long-term dominance has been established over the past decade. More notably, the front office appointed Steve Kerr as his head coach after being named his five-time NBA champion.
Steve Kerr has named Giannis Attecumpo as a star and wants to coach him!
Since the start of his tenure in the “Bay Area,” Kerr has mentored several future Hall of Famers. So Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson.
When asked which NBA player the marksman would love to coach today, Kerr didn’t hesitate to name two-time NBA “MVP” Giannis Attecumbo.

Steve Kerr has undoubtedly carved his name into NBA folklore. The systems and structures implemented and executed by his players have earned him four NBA Championships in eight years.
With Kerr having a knack for turning contenders into victors, a potential alliance with someone like Atetekunpo could be seen as devastating for the NBA.
Warriors dynasty led by Steve Kerr
Kevin Durant, who worked with the Warriors from 2016-2019, created the now-famous “Warriors Superteam.” Their relationship worked out well for both sides.
The franchise unfortunately won two championships and made it to all three finals as the “All-Star” duo of Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant missed the third due to an injury.
The idea of a “superteam” is no longer an uncommon topic, as the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers revolve their teams around that concept. It’s worth noting that despite having “superteams”, the two organizations had little or no success.
Only time will tell if it proves beneficial. What do you think of the Warriors-Giannis coalition?
