Kerr recalled hitting the game-sealing shot in Game 6 during an episode of the “Runnin’ Plays” podcast. He described the moment Michael Jordan told him he may be getting the ball.
“Hey, if [John] Stockton comes off, I'm going to pass you the ball,” Kerr said. “I s—t my pants.”
The play happened almost as Jordan had planned it out. Jordan drew the double team and passed out to Kerr, who hit the shot to put Chicago up by two points with four seconds left.
Kerr said the play was similar to one that was run earlier in the series.
“I want to say it was Game 3 or Game 4 in Utah. And the exact same situation,” Kerr said. “John Stockton had come over to double-team him and stole the ball and made a great pass to Karl Malone that basically sealed the game. So Michael, he was a savant. He remembered everything.”
Kerr said it was an “amazing moment” and just what you “dream of as a kid.”
