Why Kerr picks Giannis as non-Warrior he'd love to coach originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Warriors coach Steve Kerr has seen and done it all in his illustrious career. However, there's one thing that he would still like to do if he ever gets the chance: coach Giannis Antetokounmpo.

When asked by FilGoal, a sports news website in Egypt, about which non-Warrior he'd love to coach someday, his answer was simple.

"I would love to coach Giannis," Kerr said. "He's a great player, but he seems also like a great person."

For Kerr to pick Giannis as someone he would like to coach is a no-brainer.

The Milwaukee Bucks' 27-year-old star is a two-time NBA MVP, 2021 NBA Champion and NBA Finals MVP, a six-time All-Star and All-NBA selection, the 2020-21 Defensive Player of the Year and so much more.

Seemingly improving every year since being drafted at 18, Giannis, like Steph Curry, is one of the select few players in the league, who can have a legitimate claim on being the NBA's best player.

Off the court, Giannis has been known to be personable and kind, a testament to his upbringing. Additionally, Giannis has portrayed himself to be humble and his willingness to keep getting better is indicative of who he is as a person and why people gravitate toward him.

The same can be said about Kerr and his coaching style.

Laid back and collaborative, Kerr is able to get the best out of his players and cares about them off the court, a few reasons why those around the NBA, including Charles Barkley, hold Kerr in such high regard.

Those aforementioned reasons are why JaMychal Green signed with the Warriors when he was a free agent.

At any rate, despite being fierce competitors, Kerr's admiration for Giannis is immense.

Though the Bucks' star is signed to a long-term contract, perhaps Kerr can coach Giannis in an All-Star Game in the near future to fulfill his goal.
