Steve Kerr repeats Stephen Curry is the “modern Michael Jordan”

To get an idea of ​​the effect Stephen Curry in an NBA room, just listen to the Capital One Arena audience when the Warriors arrive on Monday night. Each point guard’s basket generated a collective enthusiasm, sometimes trembling with amazement because the difficulty of converted shots was high.

The high point of this local craze was his transition to free throws, at the end of the game, where the crowd chanted “MVPs! MVP! ” for him. A rare sequence for an opposing player.

This scene inspiring Steve Kerr the ultimate simile, which he had used many times in the past. ” This is the GM (Michael Jordan) modern. I used to see him playing with the Bulls. Half the room wore red #23 jerseys, and now half the room wore blue and yellow #30 jerseys “, said the coach, mentioning the numbers of the two respective players.

The coach of the Warriors is probably the best placed person in the world to dare this parallel. Stephen Curry’s coach for almost a decade now, he was with the Bulls legend in his second treble (1996-1998). The public was still very excited at that time for his flights in the circle, where Stephen Curry admires the fans today in his away address. Two styles of play for two charismatic players who changed the game.

Not a “superhero”

Steph is going beyond the game. He excites people because he is so amazing with his game that everywhere you go people are cheering for him and can’t wait to see him play because you have never seen anything like it. And I think people will recognize him because he’s not a superhero, in terms of size or power. He is 1m88 and 83 kg Steve Kerr recalled, before adding: Many people are this big but no one can do what it can do. »

Its leader judges this comparison, made by the technician, ” interesting “and” singular “. ” I never take it for granted because it’s not always like that. And that’s what we play for, in the sense that the fans are part of the adventure, they come and spend their hard-earned money for tickets, and create an atmosphere like tonight. From the moment we stepped on the court for the warm-up and throughout the game, it was amazing », the leader is qualified.

The latter undoubtedly used this strength to sign his big project with 41 points (12/28 on shots including 6/15 from distance) and 7 rebounds. ” Fortunately, we feel that in most of our travels, and at home of course. It means a lot. So I leave it to him to make a comparison, but especially to know what our achievements have done to create this atmosphere every night, even outside. “appreciates Stephen Curry.
