A Further Note on Steve Kerr

As a follow up to my post, The Assassination of Steve Kerr's Father, here is a sidebar story on Kerr, via The San Francisco Chronicle:
In attempting to break down the NBA Finals’ coaching matchup for Fox, former NBA center Luc Longley offered an interesting take on Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.
“I know Steve really well, and he’s a cold-hearted bastard,” Longley wrote.
Longley and Kerr played together for five seasons in Chicago. Kerr was asked about Longley’s comment before Sunday’s game.
“That’s what Luc wrote? That’s fantastic,” Kerr said, laughing. “I will be sending him an e-mail tonight or maybe a phone call. Knowing Luc as well as I do, it’s tongue in cheek.
“He tried to elicit a response, and apparently, he got one from you guys and from me. Luc’s one of my all-time favorite teammates.”
Looks can be deceiving: Despite his spindly 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame, Stephen Curry can dead-lift 400 pounds — second on the team to 6-11, 255-pounder Festus Ezeli.
“He’s probably 10 times stronger than what people think,” Warriors director of athletic performance Keke Lyles told ESPN. “We knew he was strong, but when he started pushing that kind of weight, I was like, ‘This guy is just a freak.’”
