Steve Kerr not too impressed by LeBron James’ memory
LeBron James has floored many with the capabilities of his photographic memory, but Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is not one of them.
Addressing the media on Monday before Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, Kerr was asked if he was at all surprised by The King’s memory.
“No, not for a great player. I think great players remember everything. It’s like a quarterback,” he replied, according to 95.7 The Game in San Francisco.
“Draymond [Green] would be the same way,” added Kerr. “We’ll be watching tape of a game from, we played Houston in December or something, and guys will be like, ‘Oh yeah, I remember that. This is what happened next.’ I don’t think it’s that rare. But the best players generally remember the most and have the sharpest memories.”
James definitely stunts on people with his mnemonic exploits every now and then, most recently after a loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday. But Kerr, who has coached and played with more than his fair share of transcendent talents, clearly thinks that it is just par for the course for players of that caliber.
