The sharpshooting Kerr may not have put up huge numbers (he only averaged 15.6 minutes per playoff game), but he made the most of his opportunities to post a solid .370 shooting percentage from three to cement his reputation as a reliable threat from outside. No more was that apparent than in Game 6 of the 1997 NBA Finals, where Michael Jordan actually deferred to Kerr and allowed the former Arizona Wildcat to bury the championship-clinching shot. He again emerged a hero in the 2003 Western Conference Finals, this time for the Spurs, as he buried four key three-pointers in Game 6 to bury the Mavericks.
