Trivia question: Who has both the highest career three-point percentage of anyone on the Golden State Warriors? Nope, not Steph Curry (44.1%). Not Klay Thompson (42%) either. It’s actually coach Steve Kerr, who hit 45.4% of his shots from behind the arc, the highest percentage of all-time, in a 15-year NBA career.
On Monday, Kerr showed off that range at a Warriors shootaround, hitting an underhand half-court shot, to Curry’s amusement.

Kerr has never been afraid to show off his shooting prowess with his players, sometimes holding free-throw contests with Curry.
Kerr has yet to coach this season due to back issues, with Luke Walton (a 32.6% career three-point shooting, for the record) serving in an interim role in his absence, but he should be nearing a return. After all, if you can hit trick shots from half-court, how hard can coaching really be?
Golden State plays the Cavaliers tonight in Cleveland.
