Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr once had a huge series-clinching shot in the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz. The shorts he wore are now available for auction.

  • No, we’re not kidding.

What’s going on:

  • Lelands auction house has put a pair of shorts from Kerr up for auction this week. Kerr wore the shorts during the 1997 NBA Finals during Game 6, a game in which Kerr hit a series-clinching shot to help the Chicago Bulls take the series.
  • The starting bid sits at $1,500.
  • There are 14 days left to bid on the shorts.
  • The moment when Kerr wore these shorts was featured in Michael Jordan’s “The Last Dance.”
  • “Covered in champagne stains from the locker room victory celebration, these historic shorts have also been signed by Steve Kerr in black prominently in the front.”

Steve Kerr’s impact on ‘The Last Dance’

  • Kerr became one of the biggest topics of “The Last Dance”when it aired back in April and May. The documentary showed brief clips of him, which forced Twitter to wonder if the now-NBA coach ever aged because he looks to be about the same age, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.
