Together they touch on, managing time with the season up in the air, how Simons works on skills development, what players he looks to take moves/skills from, Hassan Whiteside’s 2K Game, whether or not he’s afraid of ghosts, what coaches expect of him out on the floor, listener questions and a whole lot more!
