Ron Harper RumorsAll NBA Players
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.”
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.”
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.
NBA Legends Horace Grant, Ron Harper and Peja Stojakovic, who collectively have won 10 NBA Championships, will participate in NBA Jam.

The traveling interactive basketball festival combines exciting on-court competition with concerts by well-known local musicians and authentic NBA entertainment and experiences for fans of all ages.
Ron Harper understands the desire of LeBron James to win NBA championships. He just would have handled the execution of “The Decision” a tad different, starting with a phone call. The former Cavaliers star is playing in the 87th annual Ohio Open this week at Quail Hollow. After shooting a first-round score of 98 among a field of 199, Harper gave his take on James’ choice to sign with the Heat after spending the first seven years of his NBA career with the Cavaliers. “He was a free agent, and (leaving) is his choice,” Harper said. “I think the first thing I would have done if I was LeBron James was to call up the owner of the team and tell him of the choice I made.”
