STEVE KERR: THE NEW MATT MILLEN

Like the rest of America, we just can't get over the Shaq deal. WHAT THE HELL ARE THE SUNS THINKING? More specifically, what the hell is Steve Kerr thinking (on a serious note, are we the only ones that didn't know Kerr's dad was assassinated when he was 18? That's just about the worst thing we've ever heard).

Then we realized it all sounded vaguely familiar: The journeyman player with way more rings than he deserved turned insightful color analyst turned shitty GM.

Hmmm, who else does that describe? The one, the only: Matt Millen.

Take a look:

MATT MILLEN

Teams: 3 (Raiders, 49ers, Redskins)
Rings: 4 (1981, '84, '90, '92)
Ill-Advised Move: Calling Johnnie Morton a "fag"
In The Booth: Fox/CBS Color Analyst (1995-2000)
Current Title: President and CEO, Detroit Lions
Weakness: Wide Receivers
- Roy Williams
- Calvin Johnson
- Mike Williams
- Charles Rodgers
Bone-Headed Moves:
- Mike Williams
- Charles Rodgers
- Joey Harrington
- Tatum Bell for Dre Bly trade

STEVE KERR

Teams: 5 (Cavs, Magic, Bulls, Spurs, Blazers)
Rings: 5 (1996, '97, '98, '99, 2003)
Ill-Advised Move: Getting TKOd by Michael Jordan
In The Booth: TNT Color Analyst (2003-07)
Current Title: President of Basketball Operations/GM, Phoenix Suns
Weakness: Old Guys
- Grant Hill
- Shaquille O'Neal
Bone-Headed Moves:
- Shaquille O'Neal for Shawn Marion & Marcus Banks trade

OK, so it's only one move. But that's all it takes to ruin a franchise when the move is picking up a 35-year old that will count 20 million against the cap for 2 more years.

Let's just hope it doesn't end up like this for Kerr:

When Kerr was in college, rival Pac-10 fans chanted P-L-O at him, because Pac-10 kids are classy.
