The one common thread between this season’s Warriors and the 72-10 Chicago Bulls is Golden State coach Steve Kerr.
The former sharpshooter played alongside Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and the rest of that legendary ’95-96 Bulls team that rolled to the title. So comparison questions are inevitable. Especially the ones that pit Steph Curry vs. Jordan.
But Kerr opted to focus on their off-court presence than their on-court skills.
"There is an aura that’s similar," Kerr told reporters. "Steph is obviously a worldwide phenomenon now and you see a thousand people watching him warm up or you see a couple hundred people at the hotel at 2 a.m. trying to get his autograph, that’s similar to the Michael phenomenon."
