On Your (Book) Marks

This is an article from the April 15, 2002 issue Original Layout

Steve Kerr, guard,
Portland Trail Blazers

Time spent on the Internet: "Probably an hour a day."

Computer: Toshiba Protege laptop

Sites he regularly visits: "I use Google as a search engine to
find things I need. I play Scrabble on the plane and on the road,
but I use the computer mainly for communication. I receive and
send about a dozen e-mails a day."

E story: "I had a group of about six students from a small
university in Toronto e-mail me. They told me they named their
intramural team after me. I looked up their website, and, sure
enough, they called themselves the Steve Kerr All-Stars, which is
an oxymoron. When we played up there, I got them tickets to the
game, and then I hung out with them."
