ATLANTA (Ticker) - Guard Steve Kerr, who won five championships during
a 14-year NBA career, announced his retirement Thursday and was hired
as an analyst by Turner Network Television.

The announcement came less than two months after Kerr captured his
fifth title and second with the San Antonio Spurs.

"It was tough to pass up the opportunity to play another year for the
Spurs, but I'm so thrilled about the opportunity to work with TNT,"
Kerr said. "It was the only way I'd pass up another year of playing in
the NBA."

Kerr, 37, leaves the NBA as the most accurate 3-point shooter in
league history at 45.4 percent. He also holds the single-season record
for long-range accuracy at 52.4 percent in 1994-95 and won the 1997
Long Distance Shootout during All-Star Weekend.

Contract not renewed and no league interest.

This is bad news for the Spurs.

 Don't worry, as long as Rick Fox is injured, the rest of the league
still have a chance.

This is true.  Without the magic 6 points, the Spurs might actually
win a game or 8 against th Lakers.

I don't think this is true....word from good sources on the
Spurs boards was that they really wanted to re-sign him,
he just decided the time was right to get out and try
broadcasting.

Realistically, I think it's a good decision. But had he stayed, the Spurs
would have had both Horry _and_ Kerr. Given how the last ten NBA
championship teams have had either Horry or Kerr, what kind of karma would
that have brought? : )
