Kudos to Kerr
The NBA finals start this week. No Bulls, but plenty to get excited about. LeBron vs. Steph. Star Power vs. Team Power. Two down-on-their-heels cities (Cleveland/Oakland) that deserve some fun.
I'm for the Warriors and it's because of Steve Kerr. Yes, he was a sharp shooter for the Bulls. And yes, he made a game-winning finals shot inches away from Michael Jordan. But, there's more.
Steve Kerr was born in Beirut, Lebanon. His parents were teachers at the American University of Beirut. He father Malcolm was an international expert on the middle east and he wrote with compassion about Arab life. That didn't stop a terrorist from shooting him dead.
Steve was back in the U.S. attending college. He was 18.
Let's tip the scales of life a little for Steve.
