Redwood Day Speaker Series presents "All The Conversations at Once!" with W. Kamau Bell with Steve Kerr
Comedian, TV host, and three-time Emmy winner W. Kamau Bell sat down to talk to five-time NBA championship player (Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs) and three-time NBA championship head coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr during this engaging and informative event. They covered Steve’s life before the NBA, playing with and coaching NBA superstars, mixing sports and politics, getting into and out of controversy, his love of the Bay Area, and his unusual path to success. Kamau was especially excited to sit down with Coach Kerr as he has been following Steve's career since they both lived in Chicago in the '90s. At the time, Steve was a member of The Chicago Bulls and Kamau was a guy who couldn’t afford tickets to The Chicago Bulls. After a life that has led Steve to work with Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan, and Steph Curry and has seen him get into a war of words (or tweets) with President Trump, Steve took on his smallest challenge yet, an evening with W. Kamau Bell.
Since both Steve and Kamau believe that you can’t just talk about it, you have to be about it, a portion of the proceeds are going to one of Steve’s favorite charities, Oakland Promise.
