Steve Kerr’s coolest congratulatory text? Tiger Woods

June 15 2018 4:18 PM

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr got a load of congratulatory text messages after winning the NBA Finals.

The Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers for a third title in four years, with Kerr's phone blowing up as those close to him offered compliments.

When 14-time major winner and golf superstar Tiger Woods popped up among them, the Golden State boss could not hide his delight.

"I don't want to be a name-dropper, but I guess the one that kind of stood out was Tiger Woods," Kerr told 95.7 The Game.

"That was pretty cool. He and I connected last year over our back problems, so we've kind of stayed in touch."

Woods' back issues are well-documented, but it was just last year when Kerr missed parts of the playoffs with recurring back issues that caused migraines.

Kerr missed the first 43 games of 2015-16 while rehabbing from back surgery, and the Warriors went on to win an NBA-record 73 regular-season games.
