Ron Harper RumorsAll NBA Players
The defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers announced Tuesday that they’ll turn back the clock this season with six Hardwood Classic Night games at Quicken Loans Arena, starting on Dec. 9. In addition to commemorative in-game videos, music and entertainment, the Cavs will rock the retro bright-orange uniforms that the team wore in the mid-1980s, paying homage to rosters headlined by World B. Free, Ron Harper, Mark Price and John “Hot Rod” Williams.
Ron Harper: Kobe destroyed him. Brian Shaw: This is 22-year-old Kobe. Crazy athletic. Unlimited stamina. I mean, he kicked his ass. He pulled out everything in his bag — dunk, up-and-under, pull-up, crossover. Devean George: Fadeaway. Left hand. Right hand. Blowing by him. Brian Shaw: We were on the sidelines gassing it up. People are laughing, yelling, “Hey J.R., be careful what you wish for.”
Kerr: Ah, well that’s interesting. The only thing I know for sure is I had no chance to guard Steph. So I would say, we would probably have had to put a combination of Scottie [Pippen] and Harp [Ron Harper] on Steph. You didn’t expect this to be hard, did you? Kerr: No. I do think that we would have — when I say “we,” I’m saying from a playing standpoint. I mean, this is hard to even know whether I’m saying “we” or “they.”
One day after Steve Kerr said he “anticipates” speaking to Phil Jackson about the Knicks head-coaching job, Ron Harper told The Post he believes he will interview for a position with the Knicks, as well. Harper won NBA five titles under Jackson as a combo guard, playing five seasons in Chicago for the new Knicks team president and two seasons with the Lakers. He was also a teammate of Kerr’s in Chicago and Cleveland.
Harper said he has texted with Jackson a few times since he got the Knicks job. “I would expect so,” Harper said of interviewing for a coaching job. “A few guys are expecting to hear from him. We’re in a wait-and-see mode. Whatever he needs me to do, I will do. He knows that.”
NBA Legends Horace Grant, Ron Harper and Peja Stojakovic, who collectively have won 10 NBA Championships, will participate in NBA Jam.
