    Dikembe Mutombo | Stay Yo A** at Home w/ Knuckleheads

    Dikembe Mutombo | Stay Yo A** at Home w/ Knuckleheads

    Y’all. This might be the best interview we’ve ever done. Not bragging. Just facts. The Big OG. Mr. No-No-No Dikembe Mutombo rolls up on Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. The Hall of Famer has a story so unbelievable it has to be true. Hear how he went from the Congo to Georgetown on an academic scholarship. How coach John Thompson found him at school and invited him to practice with Alonzo Mourning’s squad. And how Dikembe got extra reps playing intramural ball — yes, intramural ball, dunking on everyday students. We hear about his record-breaking first big game in college, his summer battles with Zo and Patrick Ewing, and his decision to go pro. You learn how Bill Russell shaped his mind. And why the story about Jordan dunking on Dik was seven years in the making — and how Mutombo never hears the end of it. We hear about just how cold the business of the NBA really is. Why Atlanta was heaven for a Black Congolese. And the story behind Adidas’s Mt. Mutombo basketball shoe. Just like the big man himself, there’s so much here. Mutombo built an entire hospital to honor his mother. Now he’s building an entire school. It’s a personal look at the career of one of the best defenders ever to play the game. Y’all be shaking your heads with amazement and laughing with pure joy during this one. We’re closing out quarantine season with the larger-than-life legend, Dikembe Mutombo. Swat that shot. Wag that finger. Tune in.

    Robert Horry | Stay Yo A** at Home w/ Knuckleheads

    Robert Horry | Stay Yo A** at Home w/ Knuckleheads

    Seven. Read that again. Seven-time NBA Champion Robert Horry drops in for this week’s episode of Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. He comes in to set the record straight on Sexy Rexy and what really happened in Phoenix with the towel and Danny Ainge. But Big Shot Bob is a walking legend. A lot bigger than that moment. Truth. And so he leads us down the incredible pathway that led him to win NBA championships with three historic teams. We go from his days in Alabama to being drafted by the Rockets. He gives us insider knowledge on Dream. The reason why his Rockets would have beaten the Bulls. The series of trades that ultimately landed him in Los Angeles. What it was like playing with Peak Shaq and a young Kobe. Those shots he hit. What he thinks of his nickname. And man, we’re not even finished. Because Big Shot then travels to San Antonio to play with Duncan, Parker and Ginobili. Few played with so many legends and even fewer put up stat lines like Horry. His view of the game--and the game within the game--is original, distinct and nuanced. There’s a reason why this kid became the player you better get the rock to at the end of the game. Big Shot Bob. The OG with more rings than Thanos. Y’all better tune in for this one.

    Rasheed Wallace | Stay Yo A** at Home w/ Knuckleheads

    Rasheed Wallace | Stay Yo A** at Home w/ Knuckleheads

    Mr. “Ball Don’t Lie himself,” Rasheed Wallace is up in the joint for this week’s episode of Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles! Sheed breaks it alllll down. From those UNC vs. Duke rivalries, with his boy Stackhouse, all the way to the 2004 Finals, when he smelled the blood in the water after Game 4. And that feeling when they actually won? His whole life flashing before his eyes. Sheed breaks down all the reasons why Larry Brown is The Man. Then he goes back to that time he played just one game for Atlanta. How his first practice with the Celtics quickly turned into KG and Sheed trash-talking each other. The true secret to hooping in Air Force Ones. Who he has to thank for his jump shot. How he doesn’t think anyone will beat his record for technical fouls in a season (41 by the way). And how, yeah, sometimes that first technical foul did ignite him into that beast mode we all know and love. Sheed Wallace, ladies and gentlemen … tune in.

    Derrick Coleman | Stay Yo A** at Home w/ Knuckleheads

    Derrick Coleman | Stay Yo A** at Home w/ Knuckleheads

    Big, tough, and ready to punch you in the mouth, Derrick Coleman ain’t here to play around on this week’s episode of Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. DC gets it crackin' early, talking about growing up in Detroit and how quickly he knew he was the best. He touches on Syracuse, what it's like to be one of the greatest in school history, and explains why he stayed all four years. Then we get to the league, coming in early and dominating at a tough position. DC looks back on his time with the Nets, how great it was playing with Kenny Anderson, and he laughs about being one of the few people to posterize Shaq. DC has no problem saying Dream Team II is the best Dream Team — and you just may be swayed! Later on the guys get into the incredible social work Derrick is doing for Michigan and how he’s trying to make an impact on future generations."From the ghetto to the gold medal," DC brings the heat!
