Warriors coach Steve Kerr made pro sports history with 200th win

Ever since Steve Kerr was named head coach of the Warriors, his teams have been almost unbeatable. He took over at the start of the 2014-15 season and went 67-15 in his first year. He then made NBA history with a 73-9 record the following season, and is 60-14 in the current campaign.

The team's 60th win, which was recorded Tuesday night against the Rockets, marked Kerr's 200th as a head coach. What makes that stat amazing is that he only needed 238 tries to win 200 games, which made pro sports history as the quickest ever to reach that milestone (previous was Phil Jackson, 270).

Kerr's 38 losses in almost three seasons is almost impossible to believe. The Trail Blazers and Heat each have 38 losses this season and are currently playoff teams. Other franchises would kill for this type of consistency.

Not only are his cumulative stats impressive, but the team now has 60 wins in three straight seasons, becoming the first team to do so since the 1995-98 Bulls (who featured Kerr as a backup guard).

Pretty much the only thing Kerr can't do is hold on to a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.
