Ime Udoka beat long odds and made an NBA team after getting a last-minute invitation to training camp
...Saw this, couldn't ignore it.
@ 31:00+ Chandler talks about his free agency leaving Dallas and how Portland courted him BUT what’s most interesting is that he talks about how and why he chose Memphis over us. Basically, our front office wanted him to do a physical before we signed him and Memphis did not. We dodged a bullet. This guy was a swindler.
Does he know something we don’t?
I feel like all fans should listen to this podcast. I think they touch on some really inciteful points about players priorities/mentalities, high IQ basketball and so forth. Really reaffirms that todays game has changed so much you have to play with far more than just talent alone.
Yes there are some awesome ones mixed in big way too many staged photos vs classic images. Help me make a much better list of the top NBA SI covers of all time!
He came and worked out in Portland with Dame and he's like the proverbial kid at Christmas talking about it.
Seems like a pretty big get, right???
Good stuff and always good to hear from coach. Chauncey seems like a cool dude. I'm stoked to see how he can turn the team around.
