It's official, Steve Kerr is back in the broadcast booth

Steve Kerr is back with TNT. He will be in the booth next year, taking the place of Doug Collins, who has gone to Philadelphia to try and slow down the great running team they are building.

Kerr had been in the booth four years then left to run the show in Phoenix. He started out with some big mistakes of style — hello Shaq — but eventually corrected them and helped put together a good bench that brought the Suns back to the Western Conference finals.

But broadcasting is the ultimate retired player gig. You work a couple days a week, so you’re home with your family more. You’re not stuck between a coach (and fans) asking for more players and a penny-pinching owner. If you’re wrong, nothing really happens. So you can bet Kerr will be happy to be back.

“I’m fortunate to have worked with two great organizations since the end of my NBA playing career; Turner Sports and the Phoenix Suns,” said Kerr. “As I resume my broadcasting career, I’m excited to return to the Turner Sports family and proud to be associated with such a great group of people.”

Kerr’s a good choice, but I’d still prefer more Hubie Brown.

    Hubie Brown over Steve Kerr? Let’s say you are Hubie Brown. You are old and use the second person way too much. Fine. You sound like you smoke fifty packs a day and you use the same cliches every game. Now you’re Steve Kerr. You bring a fresh viewpoint to the game and your chemistry with Marv Albert was fantastic. You have to choose Steve Kerr in crunch time.
