With the amount of substantial contracts extended by teams, Pelicans assistant coach and New Orleans native Robert Pack, 47, wished he was 20 years younger so he could be part of this current era of NBA players. Pack, entering his second season on Alvin Gentry’s coaching staff, played in the NBA as a point guard from 1991 to 2004. During the 2002-03 season, Pack played in 28 games for the then-New Orleans Hornets.
”I had that conversation with my mom, I was born too early,” said Pack, who is the head coach of the Pelicans’ summer league team that opens on Friday in Las Vegas against the Lakers. ”I talked last night about that. It’s a good time to be a player.” Pack was a member of the 1991-92 Portland Trail Blazers that advanced to the NBA Finals before losing to the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls. Pack also was a member of the 1993-94 Denver Nuggets that made NBA history as the first No. 8 seed to a defeat a No. 1 seed (Seattle Supersonics) in the first round of the playoffs.
We focus so much on the imagery that we forget what he did to earn it. Mutombo averaged slightly more than six blocked shots per game in that upset of the Seattle SuperSonics, setting a record for a five-game series. “You think about the six blocks,” his Nuggets teammate Robert Pack said. “But you think about maybe the other seven that he altered and maybe the five more that he just discouraged guys from coming into the lane.”
Gentry said he is still looking to fill the one remaining spot on his staff. But Gentry retained Kevin Hanson and Fred Vinson, who both were assistants on former Pelicans Monty Williams’ staff. Hanson will continue working with Davis, while Vinson is expected to remain as a shooting coach to help players like swingman Tyreke Evans. Gentry hired Darren Erman as his lead assistant and New Orleans native Robert Pack earlier this month
New Orleans native Robert Pack will be joining Alvin Gentry’s staff as an assistant, league source said Tuesday afternoon. Although Pack has yet to sign a contract with the Pelicans, a source said, but a verbal agreement has been reached. Pack is expected to work with the guards. Pack graduated from Lawless in 1987 and spent two years at Tyler Junior College before playing at Southern Cal. Pack, a point guard, played in the NBA from 1991 to 2004. He played for the then-New Orleans Hornets as a backup guard during the 2002-03 season under former coach Paul Silas. He returned to the franchise as an assistant coach in 2009-10.
