Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - Could you imagine coaching in your first all-star game... in your first season ever coaching? Might be pretty stressful, you might over complicate things, put pressure on everyone to win. Well you're not Steve Kerr.
The former Wildcat guided the West All-Star team to a record breaking 163-158 victory. It was the most points ever scored in an NBA All-Star Game. So what in the world did Steve Kerr draw up with all this firepower at his disposal? Nothing, he winged it, the whole game. Kerr explains,
"One of you guys get it, and, like, throw it to one of the other guys, and then you throw it to someone else, and then shoot" play can't be stopped.
The best part about all of this, it worked. Kerr was mic'd up during part of the game to catch some of his free wheeling coaching strategies courtesy of deadspin http://deadsp.in/1EhSPpp.
Kerr returns to his day job Friday in a match up with the Spurs. Right now Kerr's Warriors are a league best 42-9, safe to say he knows what he's doing in Golden State.
