Golden State Head Coach and former Bulls star Steve Kerr first underwent back surgery in July of 2015. It was months after he gave the Warriors’ their first- ever NBA title (and took home the Coach of the Year award). The former Michael Jordan teammate was on top of the world.

“He does everything right,” said his assistant coach, Luke Walton, at the time. “He takes care of himself; he treats people the right way. Karma should be on his side.”
Steve has made some improvements since then, but thanks to his back pain, his entire future is uncertain.

He was forced to sit out the first half of the season. The pain in his back was soon accompanied by terrible migraines. He had them almost daily and would occasionally see spots. His team was enjoying the greatest regular season in the history of the sport, and he couldn’t enjoy it.
