  • What They're Saying: Steve Kerr

    "If I were the czar of American basketball and I had to say, 'all right, I'm in charge of youth basketball in America.'

The problem in basketball today [is] the young players are coming up and they just try to beat everybody one-on-one with the dribble. They're unbelievably gifted dribbling the ball, but they don't understand the pass and the move. Which is what football would teach them."
