Steve Kerr, Golden State Warriors head coach: (It) happened just as practice was beginning, and we have a regular warmup routine that we do and guys were starting to go through their stretching. And Jarron Collins walked up to me, my assistant coach, and he whispered. He had his phone in his hand, and he said, “Coach, Kobe Bryant just died in a helicopter accident.”
An offshoot of the longstanding voter registration organization Rock The Vote, Hoopers Vote took part in this week’s National Voter Registration Week by having ambassadors from the NBA and WNBA communities, including media that cover the league, publicly push people to make sure they’re registered to vote on multiple social media sites beginning on Thursday. A new website, hoopersvote.org, links to Rock The Vote and its various initiatives. Emmy Award-winning actress and producer Kerry Washington is taking part in the campaign. Current NBA players including Jackson, Duncan Robinson, Collin Sexton and Langston Galloway are taking part; WNBA stars Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart, Nneka Ogwumike, Elena Delle Donne and Renee Montgomery are on board, along with Hall of Famers Lisa Leslie and Rebecca Lobo. NBA Hall of Famers taking part include James Worthy and Alex English, along with media members such as Kenny Smith and Steve Smith of Turner Sports and Jalen Rose of ESPN. Warriors assistant coach Jarron Collins and his twin brother Jason, the former NBA big man, are also ambassadors.
“I think it’s super beneficial for me as one of my player-development coaches,” forward Marquese Chriss said of working with Collins. “I feel like I have the same kind of mind-set with guys like that, so it’s been helpful for me and helpful for other players on the team.” Other franchises have taken notice. Over the past two years, Collins has interviewed for head-coaching jobs with the Hawks and Grizzlies. Many in the Warriors’ organization believe that his basketball IQ, experience under respected mentors and ability to relate to players ensure that he’ll soon lead a team of his own.
Though he understands the Memphis Grizzlies have also interviewed other candidates for their head-coaching vacancy, Warriors coach Steve Kerr argued that assistant Jarron Collins “is highly qualified to make his next move in the league.” Collins interviewed recently with the Grizzlies almost a year after interviewing for the Atlanta Hawks position. Although the Hawks hired Lloyd Pierce, the Hawks were impressed with Collins’ interview and resume. The Warriors have also been pleased with Collins during the past five years on Kerr’s coaching staff.
