Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has revealed the differences between Michael Jordan and Stephen Curry’s fame.
Speaking with Scott Van Pelt on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Kerr said, as transcribed by Ali Thanawalla of NBC Sports:
“I think there was almost a mystical quality to a famous team or athlete like Michael back then. Nothing is left to the imagination now. Back then, you could get away from it as an athlete, as a player, as anyone in the public eye. When the camera wasn’t on you, you could escape it.”
Michael Jordan played for Chicago Bulls from 1984 to 1993 and 1995 to 1998. Later he played for Washington Wizards (from 2001 to 2003).
“But today, with social media, with people seeing every single aspect of your life, you look at Steph Curry as a great example of someone whose every movement is analyzed and judged and criticized, so I think back then, there was a little more freedom that came with fame. You could escape it. And now it just seems like it’s impossible to do so,” Kerr added.
