Rams coach Shaka Smart likes to end practice on a lighter note, so when he saw TBS analyst Steve Kerr on the sidelines watching VCU’s shootaround Thursday at the Alamodome, he couldn’t resist bringing the former NBA sharpshooter onto the court. It was time for a 3-point contest, Kerr against Rodriguez.
"I thought for sure Steve would win because he’s the best shooter I’ve ever seen," Smart said. "But Joey stepped in there and knocked them in."
"That was cool," Rodriguez said after, the smile creasing both sides of his face. "I’m sure if he had a couple more warm-up shots he would have killed me. It was cool shooting against someone like that. And you could kind of see at the end he wanted to win. He’s a great shooter, probably the best clutch shooter of all time, one of them at least."
