    Episode 7: Kendrick Nunn | “It’s just preparation”

    Episode 7: Kendrick Nunn | “It’s just preparation”

    Kendrick Nunn can flat out score. Everyone in the NBA is well aware of that now. But while his game was always there, the recognition and respect he deserved seemed to be overlooked at times. Coming from a high school career with 4 straight state titles, then a college career where he nearly led the nation in scoring, K-Nunn thought he was a sure-fire pick in the NBA draft. But then he wasn't. That's where his path took a turn to the G-League, and just like Duncan, he had to make his minutes count. The league started to take notice in the 2019 Summer League and from that point on, Nunn has been expanding his game, his minutes, and his reputation. In this humbling interview, K-Nunn talks about how hard it was to wait his turn, what it's like know that he has truly arrived, whether or not he feels like his journey was destiny, and much more.

    Episode 5: Georges Niang | “Make sure your bag has two suits”

    Episode 5: Georges Niang | “Make sure your bag has two suits”

    Georges Niang had all the accolades in high school, and racked up plenty more at Iowa State. He was a 2x All-American and a dominant force for the Cyclones who proved time and time again that he was a big-time player. Yet, when the NBA draft arrived, he lasted until #50 and many doubted he could contribute at the next level. While getting drafted in the NBA is an incredible accomplishment in itself, Georges quickly realized he had to make changes to his game to become a mainstay in the league. And did he ever. In this honest and humble interview, he sits down with Duncan and Davis and details the journey he took from a decorated college player, to the G-League, to the NBA bench, and now ultimately a key role on the court with the Jazz. Plus, he keeps it real on what he thought of Duncan's NBA chances when they were growing up in the same area. Did we say he was honest? Maybe we should change that to brutally honest.
