Steve Kerr

NBA Coach and Championship Player


Steve Kerr engineered the most successful campaign of any first year coach in NBA history in 2014-15, culminating in the Golden State Warriors winning the fourth NBA Championship in franchise history and the first in 40 years. This year, the Warriors won their second NBA final in three years which was Kerr’s seventh after winning five during his 15-year playing career, he led the Warriors to a then-franchise-record 67 victories, establishing NBA records for most wins and highest winning percentage (67-15, .817) by a rookie head coach. With this year’s final, the Warriors are now one of five teams in the NBA to have won 5 or more NBA finals. Kerr followed his inaugural campaign by winning the 2015-16 NBA Coach of the Year Award for leading the Warriors to an NBA-record 73 wins in 2015-16, eclipsing the previous mark of 72 set by a Chicago Bulls squad in 1995-96 that featured Kerr as a key reserve. In addition to the single-season wins record, the Warriors set new league marks for single-season road wins (34), consecutive wins to begin a season (24) and consecutive regular-season home wins (54). After seeing a 16-game improvement over the previous season in 2014-15 (51-31 in 2013-14), an NBA record for the biggest improvement by a 50-win team in league history, the Warriors improved by six wins in 2015-16, joining the Chicago Bulls (1995-96 & 1996-97) as the only teams to win at least 65 games in back-to-back campaigns. Originally named to the position on May 19, 2014, Kerr is the 25th head coach in franchise history and the 20th since the team moved to the West Coast in 1962. He is the fourth Warriors coach to win an NBA title, joining Eddie Gottlieb (1947), George Senesky (1956) and Alvin Attles (1975). Kerr, 51, owns 28 years of NBA experience as a player, coach, television analyst and front office executive, including a three-year stint (2007-10) as president of basketball operations and general manager for the Phoenix Suns. During his time as the Suns GM, the club posted a 155-91 (.630) record and earned a pair of playoff berths, including a trip to the 2010 Western Conference Finals. Having made the playoffs 11 times during his playing career, Kerr is one of only 26 players in NBA history to win five championships, earning three rings with Chicago and two with San Antonio. A key reserve for Chicago during the team’s three-peat championship run from 1996-98, Kerr famously hit the game-winning, title-clinching shot in Game 6 of the 1997 NBA Finals. He won his fourth consecutive championship in 1999 with the San Antonio Spurs to become one of only two non-Boston Celtics to win four-straight NBA titles (joining Frank Saul, 1951-54). His fifth ring came in his second stint with the Spurs during his final NBA campaign in 2002-03. The NBA’s all-time three-point percentage leader, having converted on 45.4 percent (726-of-1599) of his attempts from long range, Kerr amassed career averages of 6.0 points, 1.8 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 910 regular-season games with the Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs (twice) and Portland Trail Blazers.

Optiv

In this age of organizations scrambling to finally include identity as the core of their security strategy we still divide the world into a fictitious construct of “insiders” and “outsiders”. Phishing has exposed the truth of what many already knew; that an “outsider” does not truly exist once internal credentials have been breached. That “outsider” is now fully an “insider” and due to our security frameworks still being highly oriented towards protecting the perimeter, monitoring and management of internal user credentials is still highly deficient in most companies. Instead of thinking about “insiders” and “outsiders”, it is time to acknowledge that there are no more “outsiders”. There are only actors that you are in relationship with and those you are not yet in relationship with. Learn how you can rethink the problem of identity and uncover new methods and approaches to protect your company by attending this session, led by the former global head of identity for JPMorgan Chase and current Executive Advisory consultant for Optiv, Richard Bird.
