Warriors go for season sweep of the Bulls tonight in Chicago

Can Coach Kerr lead his current squad over the team he used to play for?

My earliest memory of Steve Kerr, the basketball player, was during his tenure with the Chicago Bulls of the late-90’s. He was a long-range threat and trusty role player to Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. It was his dagger in the 1997 Finals that thwarted Karl Malone and John Stockton’s first best chance at a title, a shot that always gets replayed when the NBA’s clutchest buckets gets mentioned.

My latest memory of Kerr AGAINST the Bulls was right around Thanksgiving when he broke a clipboard with his hand while coaching the Golden State Warriors to a win.

What is it about Chicago that seems to get “punches” and “Kerr” in the same sentence?

The Warriors will need to come in swinging tonight against a Chicago team that is as desperate for a win as Golden Sate is. The Bulls currently have a record of 8-14, while the Warriors are stuck at 4-19. Somebody’s gotta win tonight, and here’s hoping it’s the Dubs!

BULLS!

WARRIORS!

NEXT!
