So what’s a marketing rep and why are NBA teams now so interested in hiring such people? Among other duties, the rep is a liaison between superstar and sneaker company. Many are former high-level athletes, but nearly all, almost without exception, are cool. This is the rare high-paying “no nerds allowed” job. If you’re doing it, you have to be smooth like Rick Fox in He Got Game. Those are the rules.
As much as the Lakers’ previous championships this century have relied on mostly Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, they also had Robert Horry, Derek Fisher, Rick Fox and Ron Artest make critical 3-pointers when their stars needed help. The current Lakers have not extended that same courtesy. Any excuses about adjusting toward playing without fans or having playoff jitters won’t cut it. Neither does the Blazers having superior momentum over the Lakers because they played a heavier workload during the season restart to secure a playoff berth, while the Lakers coasted to maximize health. “You’ve got to erase your memory. That’s part of being confident,” Kuzma said. “If you miss 10 in a row, or you make 10 in a row, you’ve got to forget about them and keep shooting them. I like to say, ‘Just shoot until you get hot,’ and I think we have that capability.”
Draymond Green said his championship Warriors would beat your Lakers. Any thoughts on that? Shaquille O’Neal: I have a hard time believing that the greatest coach of all time, plus me and Kobe, wouldn’t match up quite nicely against Steve Kerr and his gang. Kobe takes Steph and dominates him. Fisher takes Klay and manhandles him. Fox takes Draymond and makes him foul out in the first half. Horace would do his thing with K.D. But let’s be real, K.D., is a beast, and you can only do so much with him. And then I’d remind Pachulia why I am in the Hall of Fame and he is not.

Roland Lazenby: I think that’s probably sort of the attitude; Kobe and his family was trying to jump line at the cafeteria or something you know? They thought that he was trying to jump in front of people. I know Rick Fox told me that. When Kobe came to the Lakers as a teenager, you know there’s all these veterans working hard for their money and here’s this kid being shoved in front of us and so it created – and he never once bothered to say, ‘Man I wasn’t planning any of this, this stuff just happened to me’… he was granted by working as hard as he did, smart as he was, but he wasn’t out there schemin’…
