CJ McCollum, a journalism major at Lehigh University, is known for his media savvy and ability to get behind the microphone. Now he’s adding a podcast to a resume that already inlcudes a weekly radio show and multiple interviews with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.
Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune recently sat down with McCollum to discuss his new podcast, “Pull Up”, which debuted last week:
Tribune: Looks like your first “Pull Up” podcast already has created some controversy. You’re getting plenty of run for your comment that LeBron James signing with Philadelphia this summer is “a bigger possibility than people think.”
McCollum: Oh goodness. It’s interesting. Whenever you speak your opinion, there are going to be mixed reviews. I was asked about the likelihood of him leaving. I said with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons being there and their mix of other talent, possibly it’ll happen. Some people will agree with my comments, some people won’t, but that’s the way the world works. That’s the fun thing about it. Hopefully the podcast will give listeners a different perspective on not only the NBA but conversations we’ll have about life in general.
