The Golden State Warriors have been one of the most dominant NBA teams in recent years, and while their All-Star packed roster is a testament to their success, much credit is also due to head coach Steve Kerr. As a retired five-time NBA Champion, Kerr has transition from a skilled player on the court to a tenacious coach that seems to have a grip on every thing.
In a recent profile on Steve Kerr on Sports Illustrated, it was reveal that as a player is openly acknowledged the lack of total control by writing a small reminder on his sneakers.
"He might go a week without playing, then enter a game in a high-leverage situation, expected to hit a big shot. So, as he related a few years back, he eventually began writing “FI” on the toes of his hightops. F*** it. That way, every time he looked down he’d see a reminder. You can only control so much. Let it fly."
Right now, the Golden State Warriors are 1-0 against the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals and are showing no signs of letting up. Tune in to Game 2 tonight at 9 p.m. EST to see if Kerr's old "F*** it" attitude will make a return as the Spurs host.
