#5 – Steve Kerr
Steve Kerr might seem like an odd choice for this spot as he doesn’t have the type of statistics that jump right out at you. Nevertheless, there is no doubt he achieved an incredible amount during his playing career. Not only did he win five NBA championships (including four in a row), but, as the career leader in three-point percentage, he is also one of the greatest shooters in history.
Kerr was a pretty clutch player during his time as well making an impact during some key playoff moments. After receiving a pass from Michael Jordan, Kerr hit the series-clinching shot in Game 6 of the 1997 NBA Finals. He also hit several big three’sin Game 6 of the 2003 Western Conference Finals to help the Spurs move onto and win the NBA Finals.
Steve Kerr was never an All-Star. He was never even a consistent starter. However, he was a valuable contributor on several championship teams, not to mention a deadly shooter. Unfortunately, the Suns never got to see this side of him. They drafted the University of Arizona product late in the second round. After only seeing him play for 26 games, they traded him to Cleveland.
