Steve Kerr has been very close to signing with the New York Knicks

The current coach of the Golden State Warriors Steve Kerr, told a decidedly interesting market anecdote, that he was very close to do the agreement with the New York Knicks in the summer of 2014, also and above all by virtue of his great relationship with Phil Jackson, at the time within the leadership of the big apple franchise.

Steve Kerr played five seasons under the guidance of Phil Jackson as a member of Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls but, after some opinions from coaches active in the NBA, he decided to accept the coaching position in California.

“They all said the same thing:” Despite your relationship with Phil Jackson, the most important thing in the NBA is talent, and the Warriors team has a lot of talent”, Steve Kerr told Ernie Johnson of TNT.
