Adam Caporn never seriously thought he’d have a NBA career when growing up in Baldivis. He certainly didn’t think he’d be in the NBA after injury forced him into a premature retirement from the Perth Wildcats at just 26.

But when Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Patty Mills and Ben Simmons take to the court for the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday, Caporn will be helping head coach Steve Nash in the quest to open the NBA season with a win over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Being a NBA assistant is a world away from his first job as head coach of the East Perth Eagles when he was trying to figure out his life beyond the NBL. But it’s a clear sign of the talent and dedication he’s shown to becoming elite in his field.
