Kirk Lacob Rumors

But while with Idaho in the D League in 2012-13, Holiday caught the fancy of Warriors assistant general manager Kirk Lacob, and along with fellow assistant G.M. Travis Schlenk, they continued to keep tabs on his progress. Lacob and Schlenk convinced general manager Bob Myers that Holiday might be a good summer league invite, and the rest is history. “Kirk, who was our D League G.M. (in Santa Cruz), had always liked him,” said Myers. “Justin put in some really good time in the D League, and we were excited to get him in the summer league. Then he was very good there. Finally, in camp, he showed up really early. Most of the guys play pick-up in September, and he just continued to elevate himself.”

Santa Cruz (Calif.) Warriors coach Casey Hill and staff are fully integrated and invested in the mission of the parent club, the Golden State Warriors. Hill, son of former NBA head coach Bob Hill, was promoted after two seasons as a Santa Cruz assistant. “The foundation of what we’re doing (in Santa Cruz) has a lot to do with what Golden State is doing,” said Hill, 30, who reports to Kirk Lacob, the Santa Cruz Warriors general manager and son of Golden State owner Joe Lacob. “I really paid attention during (Golden State) training camp. I got all their (offensive) actions, and we’re using all their terminology, using their actions. I feel I’m obligated to do that, because: A) It’s Golden State that’s running it. It’s their team, and this thing needs to be implemented where we’re developing players. … And, B) It’s my obligation to make it kind of a synergic kind of relationship where they send a player to us, he understands the system to us right away. Or if we send a player to them, he’s got a really good base knowledge of what they have set.”

Bob Myers has a fabulous job, with a salary that allows him to live anywhere he likes, visit any place he chooses. On this particular day, as soft clouds hover above the Bay Area, the Warriors general manager chooses state prison. He’s not alone. Another member of the one-percent club, Warriors coach Mark Jackson, a former NBA star, also arrives at the joint. These two one-percenters are voluntarily rubbing shoulders — literally — with men serving time at this world-famous lockup on the north shore of San Francisco Bay. Myers and Jackson and Warriors assistant coach Brian Scalabrine, one year removed from playing in the NBA, are joined by other members of the Warriors organization, including assistant general manager Kirk Lacob, the son majority owner Joe Lacob.
