Jerome Kersey remembered at public memorial in Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Former Trail Blazers coach Rick Adelman remembered Jerome Kersey as a gifted athlete who made himself a solid NBA player through hard work.

"He had the athletic skills; he could run, he could jump, and he was strong. Every camp he came to - I told him one time, `Are you trying to be a linebacker or are you trying to be a basketball player?' He always came in and worked his tail off," Adelman said.

Adelman was among those who attended a public service Monday for Kersey at the Memorial Coliseum. Ex-teammate Terry Porter, current Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts and Kersey's widow, Teri, also were on hand.
