And in the process, Myers and Kerr have become closer friends than either thought possible when Kerr took the job in 2014. “The thing that attracts people to Steve is he’s very gracious,” Myers said. “It’s not about Steve; it’s about the players. And I think maybe, that’s who he is; you can say that’s just who he is. He’s learned compassion from what he’s gone through in his life. And also, he’s played in and won five championships. So he’s not chasing the Holy Grail of a championship; he wants it for these players. He’s done it five times (as a player). So I think players, more than anybody else, can feel when a coach makes it about them as opposed to him. And I think that’s when you have people following a coach, when they believe, you know what? He’s just trying to help us win a championship. That’s his whole agenda. And Steve, on those two fronts, has been pretty unbelievable.”
