Steve Kerr says Steph Curry shares one thing with Michael Jordan

Steph Curry has arguably become this generation's Michael Jordan.

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."

This calls for some MJ highlights.

And Steph Curry.
