Steve Kerr Discusses When Michael Jordan Punched Him In The Face

(WSCR) Michael Jordan led Steve Kerr to three straight NBA Championships, but today on The Dan Patrick Show, Kerr discussed a lesser-known incident with Jordan.

Kerr told Patrick that Jordan had actually punched him in the face during a practice. At first, Kerr explains that he was only joking, but when pressed by Patrick, he explains the full story.

"I disagreed with him one time," Kerr said with a chuckle. "I think he punched me in the face.

"It was one of the best things that ever happened for me, I needed to stand up and go back at him, I think I earned some respect. But we have a great relationship ever since... you gotta prove it and then once you prove it, you're fine."
