For The Win: What has it been like learning more about this different sort of (eSports) world? Rick Fox: That we’re not so different. Just mastering excellence is I think what defines you as a pro. Playing and competing and winning under pressure, having a career where you’re idolized by young men and women who want to do exactly what you’re doing, jumping out of bed and being passionate about your career, I like at all those things and I look at the people that surround the players that are on Echo Fox. I see their dedication, their focus, their work ethic, how much time they put in, and it mirrors a lot of what it took for me to get as good as I got. And then I interacted with them just as I interacted with many of my former teammates. There’s so many different forms and expressions when it comes to professional sports and what makes it a professional athletes. I know eSports in general is grabbing more respect and inclusion is something that I subscribe to in general, so having them join the fraternity of professional athletes actually is no longer a debate. It must happen.

Fox eventually did. After O’Neal was traded to Miami and Jackson’s contract wasn’t extended, Fox wasn’t sure he could deal with the Black Mamba unchained. He already had a bad foot injury and a neck problem. So he told the Lakers he was going to retire with one year left on his contract. The team tried to change his mind. He wouldn’t, and so they traded him to Boston. He never played another game. “I knew [he] was going to be hard-core all the time,” Fox said. “I thought I would reinjure myself and be walking with a cane the rest of my life. … I just couldn’t do it.”

Three-time NBA champion Rick Fox is now the owner of a professional League of Legends team, and on Monday Echo Fox’s website went live with a job opening for a head coach and a message to fans written by Fox. The former Lakers and North Carolina star makes it clear he’s going to run his new team as he would any other traditional sports organization, and that Echo Fox’s philosophy is heavily inspired by his two legendary former coaches Phil Jackson and Dean Smith.
