In an interview with Sports Illustrated's Chris Ballard, the five-time champion NBA player and two-time champion NBA coach questioned if 'anyone ever thought that Donald Trump was a great leader?
'In a transcript that didn't make Ballard's article, he asked Kerr if Trump's personality could work as an NBA coach.'I think it probably could have worked twenty or thirty years ago,' said Kerr.
