22. Steve Kerr

Steve Kerr only debuted as a head coach for the 2014-15 NBA season, as he took over the Golden State Warriors. They immediately won the 2015 NBA championship, made the 2016 NBA Finals, and won the 2017 NBA championship, So, it’s safe to say Kerr found success on the sidelines.

Those two championships weren’t Kerr’s first, though. He picked up three on the Chicago Bulls from 1996-1998, playing on the same teams Jud Buechler had a role on. Both players marksman from 3-point range, with Kerr getting more on-court time and as arguably the best long-distance shooter in the league (47.9 3-point percentage with the Bulls).

After Kerr left the Bulls, he joined the San Antonio Spurs in the 1998-99 season. Luckily for the Arizona product, he continued where he left off in Chicago, winning the 1999 NBA championship. This also featured him playing two more seasons in a limited bench role.

After one year in Portland, Kerr returned for a last hoorah in the 2002-03 season. There, he provided the same, consistent 3-point shooting (39.5 percent) in 75 games (his most since 1997) to help win the 2003 NBA Championship. Kerr retired after that year’s NBA Finals.

Kerr had a lengthy NBA career with six teams and was just as successful as a coach. He may be more known for the titles in Chicago, but nearly matched that in two stints with the Spurs.
