Kerr carving out own legacy

Nick Kerr admits there's some pressure that comes with being the son of a former NBA star.

And he says it doesn't bother him one bit.

The Torrey Pines junior, whose father Steve was one of the most prolific perimeter shooters in NBA history during the heydays of the 1990s Chicago Bulls, is busy carving out his own legacy these days.

Nick Kerr is a budding Falcons star who has shown a pretty sweet 3-point stroke himself, leading his team to a 5-0 start. Kerr was the MVP of the Dec. 4-11 Hilltop tournament in Chula Vista.

"I know people have some expectations, but I don't really worry about it," Kerr said. "I just go out and play."
