Steve Kerr’s Chicago Bulls shorts — rocked by the sharpshooter when he knocked down one of the most historic shots in NBA history — just hit the auction block.
The white Champion brand shorts are from Game 6 of the 1997 NBA Finals … where Michael Jordan’s Bulls squad took on Karl Malone, John Stockton and the Utah Jazz.
The Bulls led the series, 3-2 … heading in to Game 6 at the United Center on June 13, 1997. It was a super tight game that went down to the wire.
With 5 seconds left in the game — and the Bulls trailing by 1 point — the Jazz defense expected Jordan to attempt the game-winning shot.
However, Jordan kicked it out to a wide-open Kerr — who nailed a 17-foot dagger of a jump shot — securing the Bulls 5th NBA Championship.
FYI — Kerr scored 9 points. Jordan dropped 39.
The shorts — photomatched to ensure authenticity — are on the auction block at Lelands Auctions.
Kerr — who autographed the shorts — has called the shot the most memorable moment of his 15 season NBA playing career.
The auction is currently underway … and there have been multiple bids around $1,500.
But, expect the price to skyrocket before bidding closes late next week.
