We tend to think of Steve Kerr as the guy Michael Jordan trusted enough to pass to for an NBA finals-clinching jumper over the Jazz in 1997.

But Kerr had been in the league long before then and been in awe of Jordan long before then. On the new NBATV show Open Court — which was quite good, by the way — Kerr recounted his first memory of Jordan in the league.

Hat tip to I am a GM for finding this.

    I remember when Kerr was with my hometown Blazers back in 2001. What a very nice man. Back then it was the JailBlazers. He brought some stability to an otherwise embarrassing time for my time.
