Kerr: Curry's Impact on Defenses More Dramatic Than Michael Jordan's

You probably know the story by now:

At the Warriors' championship parade, Steve Kerr forgot to mention Steph Curry during his time with the microphone.

A couple days later, Kerr apologized and called himself an idiot.

On Wednesday, Kerr joined Tim Kawakami on the TK Show and doubled down.

"Everything we do is based on Steph," Kerr reiterated. "From the very beginning of this run, Steph was the guy who started it ... I feel like our foundation is built around not only his talent, but his character, his selflessness, his joy, his work ethic.

"Literally our offensive system is built around the chaos that he creates for defenses. I've never seen a player who elicited so much of a defensive schematic response because of his ability to shoot from 30 feet and dribble around everybody."

Kerr was fortunate enough to play with Michael Jordan. And over the last couple of seasons, the head coach has found himself comparing Curry's impact to Jordan's.

On Wednesday, Kerr made a pretty strong declaration.

"Even Michael Jordan -- people had the Jordan rules -- but nothing has ever been as dramatic as what I've seen from opponents' defensive schemes as how they have to deal with Steph."
