When the Cleveland Cavaliers are away from #TheLand, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye bring you along for the ride as they discuss a wide array of topics including sports, travel, music, food and more with host Allie Clifton.
Episode 86: Devin Harris
Media Day, Monday we'll call it - S/O to the NBA officially getting underway today and how ironic that this summer, Devin Harris had just committed back to The Dallas Mavericks moments before we sat down to record another edition of RT (this episode). It was a little of what we talked about, but given the fact that Richard persuaded Devin to live his off seasons in the South Bay, we found ourselves off the rails again from the Red Cup Lounge. Surprise, Surprise. We had just completed the South Bay workout as a Trio, and Channing was feeling it all ...but none the less, it made for another great episode of back and forth - the perfect one to get your week started exactly how you like; laughing. Cheers!
Episode 85: Iman Shumpert
Now this is a throwback in every stretch of the word. Not only are we throwing it back to the hour spent with Iman back in July at the UN Studios at NIKE HQ, but to have such familiarity back on one episode - it doesn’t get much better than this. From style, to tracks, babies building an empire to reminiscing of the “good ol’ days” ... need we say anymore?? Happy Monday!
Episode 84: Bismack Biyombo
Time to travel back - not only was it an episode recorded back in the summer months but it was the FIRST time since LAST OCT that the trio was back together & we wasted no time! On this episode not only did we make up for lost time together but we got to know a little bit more about Charlotte Hornets' big man Bismack Biyombo, both on and off the court. From his journey thru the NBA thus far to his philanthropy off - we covered it all.
Episode 83: Frye Family Foundation/Children’s Cancer Association @ L’Angolo Estate
What a special night it was as we flash back to an evening spent in God’s Country, at L’Angolo Estate. Thanks to The Frye Family Foundation & their commitment to The Children’s Cancer Association & willingness to give back to their community, many gathered for an evening of great laughter, fine wine & dine - all for a GREAT cause. Over the next hour plus, hear from Jacob Gray (Hospitality & Brand Director at L’Angolo) & Chase Renton (wine maker & cancer survivor) as they speak on behalf of L’Angolo Estate (anything you didn’t know about vino, now you’re covered). Andrea Corradini who serves on the board at CCA & Nike (Compelling & Inspiring). & Lastly, from two of the greatest chefs around: Peter Cho & Sam Smith (creations are to die for). Music, fine dinning & GREAT vino, again celebrating a CAUSE much bigger than life itself. Cheers!
Episode 81: ESPN - Dave McMenamin (PART 1)
It may have felt like forever, but we picked up where we left off ... or at least we like to think so. YES! The trio is back together & we couldn’t be more excited - especially given the space we posted up at to record several podcasts. The Just Do It Nike HQ UNINTERRUPTED Podcast Studio is quite the place ... especially when it comes to sitting down with guests to simply just shoot the sh*t, like only we know how. On this first episode back together we are joined by ESPN’s very own Dave McMenamin to cover past, present & future life in the NBA (both on and off the floor stories). A recording that lasted around 2 hrs, has been split up into 2 parts (Part 2: next Monday) & is full of lessons, memories & plenty of laughs. SO, with that said - CHEERS! We are so glad to be back!
Episode 80: Jeff Green Reflects
As the Cavs gear up for the 2018 NBA Finals, we recap the battle thru the East and the story of Cleveland’s Conference Finals Game 7 unsung hero: Jeff Green. As once told here on Road Trippin, Jeff takes us thru the open heart surgery that forever changed his life & has him currently playing for his dream: a NBA Title.
Episode 79: Tristan Thompson
Just like old times: kind of. Richard was back in #TheLand, for longer than 24 hrs, covering the Cavs vs Raptors ECSF series & so OF COURSE we had to do a lil road trippin’. And so for the first time since early on, Tristan comes along for some fun! From missing the most he ever has in his NBA career, to dressing alike as a team ... Baby Prince & True, to an EPIC FaceTime moment with the one and only “Killa Slaya” aka Channing Frye - we take a break from playoff hoops to catch up with the Cavs' big man! (Nothing like championship teammates taking some time)
Episode 78: Charles Barkley
What a special episode we have for YOU - the one & only, “Chuckster”, “Chuck”, Charles Barkley joins us & boy does he waste no time. People always say when it comes to Chuck: what you see is what you get. Couldn’t be more honest & true. From adult beverage advice, to his stardom on the hardwood & now off - we travel all over the map for the next 90 min! His days as a youngster growing up in Alabama, the influence of the Great Moses Malone, the leagues current superstars and this seasons ROY ... fishing, pigs & what life on “Inside the NBA” is really like - be ready to laugh your tail off. Despite no wine for this edition, you learn real fast when it comes to Chuck & Richard - life, it remains the same - & so with that we say, CHEERS!
Episode 77: Best Of 2017-2018
With the 2017-18 NBA regular season coming to an end this week, we thought we would take a look back at the season that was, podcast style. Although it was hard to narrow it down to just our top 5, we took a stab at it and pulled our favorite moments from the podcast over the last season, that we have all grown to love. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this 'Best Of' episode of Road Trippin'!
