    Episode 77 - Pioneering AAU Basketball with Dana and David Pump

    Episode 77 - Pioneering AAU Basketball with Dana and David Pump

    On this episode, we take it back with the two guys who started it all for some of the most legendary hoopers. David and Dana Pump, were pioneers of the AAU scene in LA in the late 80’s/early 90’s. With what began as a scouting service, the Pump brothers recognized a need to establish organized basketball and a pipeline to put west coast players on the national stage. With the Pump-N-Run, they did exactly that. From James Harden and Paul George, to Klay Thompson and of course a prodigy from the valley...Gilbert Arenas.
    Gil gives big props to the Pumps for what they did for him and a long line of LA players. We get into how they built it, where they knew it would go and the system as it is today. The guys also share a great perspective on Gil’s journey from LA to Arizona and his stardom in DC. They want to see him back in the picture with the Wizards -- and so do a lot of people!

    Episode 76 - Trial By Fire with Kyree Walker

    Episode 76 - Trial By Fire with Kyree Walker

    On this, we have a guy you may have dropped off your radar, but make no mistake about it, he hasn’t gone anywhere. The last time you saw Kyree Walker he was doing damage on Dream Vision, following a standout junior season at Hillcrest Prep, earning him five-star recruit rankings. Instead of playing as a senior, Kyree opted to save it for the next level, and instead of the unpredictable route for a teenager overseas, he’s going underground before popping up on NBA draft boards.
    Kyree has crossed paths with Frank Matrisciano aka “Hell’s Trainer”, the same guy who put Gil through black ops training following the 2006 playoffs. Frank’s program at Chameleon BX resolves around putting Kyree through extreme mental and physical punishment to make him both an ultra conditioned athlete and an elite level competitor. Think Christian Bale when he went into the mountains to become Batman. It won’t be an easy road, but we’re all in to see how Kyree comes out on the other side.

    Episode 75 - Changing the Game with Juju Watkins

    Episode 75 - Changing the Game with Juju Watkins

    On this episode, one of the most dynamically skilled players of her age group...number one ranked to be specific, Juju Watkins comes through. Juju had a sensational freshman season at Windward High School in LA. In addition to her top ranking, Juju was named LA Times Player of the Year -- as a freshman! She was also invited to the Team USA trials for 2020 and was first team All-CIF in California. Decorated to say the least, and building on her resume, along with her skillset...as we speak!
    For Gil, he sees her as a leader for era, and the up-and-coming dominant female hooper to re-establish LA on the basketball map. Beyond that, he thinks she can change the game by pushing the expectations for a women’s player professionally as well as financiallyl. You can say Juju is built for it!

    Episode 74 - Blending Old School and the Next Wave with Destiny Lunan

    Episode 74 - Blending Old School and the Next Wave with Destiny Lunan

    On this episode, we have a true one-of-a-kind talent. She even coined her own nickname. Destiny Lunan, aka “Ky-She” as the skill and bop as influenced by her NBA namesake, Kyrie Irving himself. Thanks to the influence of current players, blended with golden era 90’s playground creativity and new school skill work, she is way ahead of schedule. To double down, she also subscribes to Gil’s school of thought, playing levels up to make herself even better.
    If that’s not enough, Gil found her on Instagram and without knowing her background, she passed his eyeball test with flying colors. Now as she’s realizing where her ability can take her, Gil is encouraging her to push limits and lock in on what she wants to accomplish. For everyone out there, it’s a basketball story you want to hear and take away from for yourself.

    Episode 73 - Raising Expectations with Ben Shtolzberg

    Episode 73 - Raising Expectations with Ben Shtolzberg

    On this episode, we have the very motivational story of Ben Schtolzberg. As Gil would naturally take a shine to, Ben is a valley kid that has worked his way up the ranks with very little hype or attention. A starting point guard as a freshman at Notre Dame High School, he went from running an offense on an upperclassmen heavy team, to taking over the squad the next season. Now, heading into his junior year, he’s putting up numbers that get him visits to UNC, Davidson and programs across the country.
    Still, what makes Ben interesting is his ability to remain humble, while shouldering a great deal of responsibility, all with big time expectations. He wants to be pushed, is never satisfied and is absolutely locked in on getting to the league. Throw in legit talent and Agent Zero is crafting another SoCal scoring guard that can do it all. Gil has been watching him for a few years now, seen the work Ben puts in with his trainer Dash Lovell, and the proof is in the results on the court year-to-year.

    Episode 72 - Let Me Be Great with Josh Christopher

    Episode 72 - Let Me Be Great with Josh Christopher

    On this episode, we’re joined by one of the most sensationally talented players of his era. Josh Christopher is a top-ranked, dynamically skilled, incoming freshman headed to Arizona State. Only isn’t planning on staying there long. Josh has all of the tools and ability to go to the league early and make an impact. For the kid that goes by "Jaygup", he’s not looking to make it, he’s working to be great.
    As Gil sees it, wanting to be an all-time great, means you’re already on your way there. At this point building on a solid foundation over the next year will get Josh primed for the jump. Also, as a Cali kid, Josh is made to shine when he gets there. If you haven’t seen Josh, get familiar, and get ready to watch a few more Arizona State games next year.
