Bleacher Report recently spoke with TNT NBA analyst Steve Kerr about the 2013 NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs. Within that conversation were a number of tangents and tidbits about shooting, particularly in the playoffs. It's a task with which Kerr is intimately familiar.
The five-time champion piled up a plethora of iconic moments during his 15-year career as a pro. Certainly, far more such moments than you might otherwise expect from a guy who never averaged more than nine points or seven field-goal attempts during any single season.
Shooting, though, is a skill that always seems to be in short supply in the NBA—and just so happened to be the one at which Kerr excelled.
Kerr still stands as the most accurate three-point shooter in NBA regular-season history, with a career mark of 45.4 percent. He previously held the single-season record for accuracy until 2009-10, when Kyle Korver bested Kerr's 1994-95 mark of 52.4 percent.
It's no wonder, then, that he lasted as long as he did in the Association. If ever there were someone to ask about battling out of a slump, having a hot hand like Danny Green's, and shooting in general, it's Steve Kerr. We did, and here's what he had to say.
