Hall of Fame point guard Jason Kidd, an assistant coach with the Lakers, looked at his sneakers while standing on the court. His eyes fixated on the logo atop the tongue of the white and black low-top shoes, the sheath that’s become synonymous with Kobe Bryant. It might seem like a little thing, but a lot had to happen for Kidd to be here, inside the NBA bubble, wearing one of his favorite pairs of shoes. He packed four pairs for the team’s trip. “When you’re on the other side, you never want to wear the enemy’s shoe. That’s an old-school thing for me. If Kobe saw that, he’d think, ‘Oh, he idolizes me. I’ve got him,’” Kidd said.
Oakleys says like everyone else in the NBA world, he had no idea Nash was even interested in a coaching gig … “but that’s how the world is.” “People hire their friends, people that they believe in. Somebody must believe in Steve Nash, a great player.” But, Oakley says there are plenty of Black coaches — like Mark Jackson, Pete Myers and Jason Kidd — who have been waiting for jobs … and got beat out because “this guy comes out of the blue.” “That goes to show you we’re still behind the 8 ball,” Oak says … “That’s what we’re trying to fight for, equal opportunity.”
