It's one thing to watch the NBA Finals from the seat of your couch as a die-hard fan or a casual observer. It's another entirely to see star-studded teams like the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs duke it out for the Larry O'Brien Trophy if you've lived and breathed that level of competition.
And if you have five rings to show for it.
For an insider's take on this exciting, unpredictable, back-and-forth series, we turned to TNT NBA analyst Steve Kerr, who participated in five Finals with the Chicago Bulls and the Spurs during his playing days. Kerr played a pivotal role in some of the most memorable moments in the history of the NBA's championship round.
His postseason stature is remarkable, considering he started just three times in 128 playoff games, averaging a mere 4.3 points on 3.5 field goal attempts in 15.6 minutes therein.
Check out what Kerr had to say about LeBron James, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, what's at stake for these two teams historically and what the future holds for each.
