Stephen Curry, Steve Kerr make Fortune's 50 World's Greatest Leaders
Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry and head coach Steve Kerr have been named to the list of Fortune's 50 World's Greatest Leaders.
“Together, the two men thrive on being underestimated but, as anyone who’s watched their end-of-practice free throw shooting duels knows, they are fierce competitors,” SI's Chris Ballard writes in Fortune. “Strive to win; enjoy the process. This is the combination that fuels the Warriors.”
Curry and Kerr are listed at No. 15, which is three spots ahead of Lin-Manuel Miranda, writer and actor of the hit Broadway show Hamilton, and one spot behind U2's Bono. Amazon's Jeff Bezos is the top leader on the list.
The Warriors sit atop the NBA with a league best 64–7 record, which may challenge the record 72 wins by Michael Jordan and the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. Curry leads the NBA in scoring while averaging 30.1 points, 6.5 assists and 5.4 rebounds per game.
Kerr went 67–15 in his first season as head coach of the Warriors, which ended with an NBA Finals championship. He missed time earlier in the season as he recovered from back surgery but is still credited with the Warriors' record for the year.
Alabama football head coach Nick Saban is also featured on the list at No. 11.
