Hersey Hawkins Rumors
MassLive: Can you describe your current job with the Portland Trail Blazers? Hersey Hawkins: I’m the director of Player Programs. I deal strictly with the players and a lot of their off-the-court stuff…Mentoring, helping them. I deal with their families, their agents, pretty much whatever I can do to help make their job a little easier for them to perform. Keep as few distractions in their life. The interesting thing about it is with 15 players, everybody has different needs. I get to work with everybody on whatever they need to be better.
It’s been 15 years and Hawkins has yet to watch a game from that series. He reviewed game tape, but he’s never sat down to watch it since. “I thought we were better than the Bulls and we should have won the championship,” Hawkins said. “It’s sort of heartbreaking to think about.”
