'One of the great accomplishments of all time' - Kerr on LeBron's six straight Finals
LeBron James and his run to six successive NBA Finals is "one of the great accomplishments of all time", said Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr.
James finally delivered a championship to Cleveland after guiding the Cavs past the Warriors 4-3 in the Finals last season.
It marked a third title for James - a four-time NBA MVP - and a sixth straight run to the championship series, with the Cavs and the Miami Heat.
And as Kerr reflected on the record-breaking Warriors - who set the regular-season wins mark at 73 in 2015-16 - and their gruelling campaign, he lauded James' achievements.
"The toll [for the Warriors] was more emotional than anything," Kerr said on Friday.
"Over time, that stuff adds up. That's why LeBron [James] going to the Finals six straight years is, to me, one of the great accomplishments of all time. Like, how many guys have done that? Maybe Bill Russell was the last guy.
"I know Michael didn't do it because he took a couple of years off. Larry Bird, Magic [Johnson] never did it. ... Six is incredible."
