Reminder: Toni Kukoc was European which made him awesome

Many people forget that Toni Kukoc played an important role in the Sixers’ magical run to the NBA Finals back in 2001. Kukoc was one of the important pieces — along with Nazr Mohammed, Theo Ratliff and Temple great Pepe Sanchez — that were traded away by Billy King to bring in Dikembe Mutombo to town to make that serious push.

They obviously didn’t win but we all remember that season and its car flags rather fondly.

We remind you of this because Steve Kerr recently told a rather hilarious Kukoc, uh, nugget that’s worth a watch.
