PLAYERS: Steve Kerr
TEAMS: San Antonio Spurs
Steve Kerr has become a pretty well respected analyst for TNT, so his predictions for the NBA season will surely warrant some attention. Kerr seems to be agreeing with the majority of the population, narrowing it down to just a few possible teams. “The way Kerr sees it, there are three true championship contenders: the Heat, Lakers, and Thunder, with Los Angeles starting slowly but eventually overtaking Oklahoma City in the Western Conference.” The San Antonio Spurs are notably absent from the list. Even after winning the Western Conference two years in a row with the best record, Kerr isn’t giving his former team much of a shot. You might think after playing under Coach Popovich for a few years and seeing what the team is capable of, he might at least put them on the short list, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Since this interview with Kerr was done with a Boston news source, they asked him about the Celtics. He gave them a small glimmer of hope, but it still came back to the Heat. “Boston has a shot, an outside chance to win the East and get to the Finals,’’ Kerr said. “After that, I don’t see anybody that can possibly win a title. It’s hard to envision anything other than an injury to LeBron [James] from keeping [the Heat] from the Finals. Like I said, Kerr’s opinion isn’t uncommon. Most people seem to be picking between the powerhouses in Los Angeles, Oklahoma City and Miami. I think if he did pick the Spurs, people would probably think he was crazy.
