- Magic Johnson has added Steve Kerr to his Mount Rushmore of NBA head coaches.
- Kerr joins four other coaches on his list.
- For those keeping up at home, that makes five names.
Magic Johnson’s Twitter account is the gift that just keeps on giving. His ability to tweet the most generic, already known information is unmatched.
Take these two tweets, for example, Magic literally just tweeting out game stats anyone can find. Top-notch analysis.
The Warriors were led by Andrew Wiggins tonight, who had 26 points and 13 rebounds! Four other guys ended in double figures: Klay Thompson with 21, Curry 16, Payton 15, and Poole ended with 14.

One of the big reasons the Warriors won Game 4, besides Steph going off for 43 points and 10 rebounds, was GSW dominated on the boards 55 to 42.

While those tweets are pure gold, Johnson truly outdid himself on Friday morning reflecting on the Warriors winning the NBA title over the Celtics.
With Steve Kerr winning his fifth NBA championship as a coach, and his ninth ring overall, Johnson officially added him to his Mount Rushmore of NBA coaches.
GSW Head Coach Steve Kerr is on my Mount Rushmore of NBA coaches with Pat Riley, Phil Jackson, Red Auerbach and Greg Popovich.

Kerr joins the likes of Pat Riley, Phil Jackson, Red Auerbach, and Greg Popovich on Johnson’s Mount Rushmore of coaches. Johnson forgot the extra ‘g’ on Gregg Popovich’s name, but that’s not the takeaway here.
The takeaway is obviously Johnson’s inability to count.
Mount Rushmore consists of just four faces: Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. Apparently, Johnson’s Mount Rushmore is made up of five names.
At the end of the day, it’s no big deal that Johnson doesn’t seem to know how many faces makeup Mount Rushmore. There are undoubtedly hundreds of thousands of Americans who have no idea how many faces are on Mount Rushmore.
Johnson isn’t a typical American, however, he happens to be one of the greatest basketball players to ever live with over 5 million followers on Twitter alone.
