TNT analyst Steve Kerr says Celtics are a long shot

Steve Kerr is looking forward to the return to NBA normalcy. The former sweet-shooting guard won five championships during his 15-year career, including one with the Spurs in the lockout-shortened 1998-99 season. But that doesn’t mean Kerr, now a standout as an amiable and incisive analyst on TNT telecasts, has any affinity for abbreviated seasons.

After last season’s lockout essentially wiped out training camp and condensed the schedule to 66 games, Kerr is glad to have the league back in full, with 82 games for all.
