Steve Kerr and his contribution to the NBA
In this particular "The Pie Hole" internet column of ESPN's Dan Patrick in 2003 (http://espn.go.com/talent/danpatrick/s/2003/0603/1562404.html), he describes former NBA player Steve Kerr and his contribution to the game of basketball by "emphasizing the importance of preparation and attention to details and fundamentals."

Kerr is the ultimate role player who specializes in coming through in the clutch. He's the NBA's version of the designated hitter. His work ethic remains consistent regardless of how many minutes he's on the floor. And, according to Spurs assistant coach P.J. Carlesimo, the average guy doesn't work as hard as Kerr. His Game 6 performance vs. the Mavs spoke volumes to the younger players in terms of emphasizing the importance of preparation and attention to details and fundamentals.
