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.
The Blazers, though combustible, were talented and ridiculously deep, with five current or future All-Stars—Scottie Pippen, Rasheed Wallace, Steve Smith, Detlef Schrempf and Jermaine O’Neal—plus potent offensive players like Damon Stoudamire and Bonzi Wells. It was arguably the strongest team the Lakers faced in their three-peat—and one of the best ever to miss the Finals. “It’s probably the best team I’ve ever faced playing basketball, period,” says Robert Horry, who won seven championships in his 16-year career, including three with the Lakers. “They were the toughest team,” Shaq says, “and they were the only team that wasn’t scared of us.”
As former NBA players Grant Hill, Steve Smith and Jason Collins began a private tour of the National Civil Rights Museum on Jan. 14, Kevin Lloyd proudly stood alongside them in place of his late father, who first opened the NBA door for black players. Hill, Smith, Collins and every African-American NBA player past and present should know Earl Lloyd’s story. On Halloween night in 1950, Lloyd became the first black player in NBA history when he debuted for the Washington Capitals. “I had the good fortune of meeting Earl Lloyd back in Detroit during the mid-’90s,” Hill told The Undefeated.
