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'!
Episode 76: Denver Nuggets Takeover
Trey Lyles makes his debut as Mason Plumlee, Paul Millsap (cameo) & Ally Sturm ride alongside Richard for another episode of RT! At the start of the NCAA tournament when this episode was recorded, the start of the Nuggets 2 week long road trip - the crew dove into everything NCAA. Kentucky, Duke & Arizona all in one room makes for a fun conversation (don’t believe me - just listen). They then get into epic and/or first hand experienced “NBA scuffles” which Channing and Trey have had one of their own ... as well as spend some time simply getting to know the Kentucky Wildcat Alum, turned NBA Pro! Is Richard a trash talker? Apparently only to his own teammates - although Clevelanders may disagree (Raptors/Cavs: Playoffs; Valanciunas anyone?) Happy Monday!
Episode 75: Channing, Jose Calderon, Savannah Werner
Guests. Guests. & more ... CHANNING! Yes, that’s right, Channing makes his way back to RT and in only Channing Fashion, prepare to laugh, hurt because you're laughing & cry because laughing hurts. You get it! Fun connection between our two guests as Allie’s BFF/former college teammate at Toledo, Savannah spent some time hooping overseas, in Spain. So her and Jose dive a lil into the culture, we talk NCAA, life w/out Channing of course & a whole lot more. (Take note: Episode was recorded when Cavs were on their most recent trip in LA)
Episode 74: Jordan Clarkson & Larry Nance Jr
On this episode of RT we take you back to the start of the Cavs most recent, longest road trip of the season where in Denver we are joined by the two former Lakers turned Cavaliers (along w/ their guest: Chucky) .. we go all over the map talking fashion, life motivations, charities, movies. We talked about the two and their return to La La Land for the first time as well as playing along side two of the Greatest to ever play. At times, LBJ who stops by, makes his cameo in the background as the conversation stays comical and insightful. Penny Wise. Chucky. Pop-eye. & more - Episode 74!
Episode 73: Harrison Barnes
We call this episode: a trip down memory lane. You will soon understand why - but here's what you need to know now. Richard & Harrison make, "real" seem easy. The two dive heavily into the 2016 NBA Finals (from both sides) and leave nothing to chance. From being on the winning side, to coming up short & the off-season that followed... this episode is enlightening. If you didn't know the connection between the two Champs themselves, you soon will & you won't be disappointed.
Episode 72: Tim Duncan on Assistant Coach Becky Hammon
Happy ‘International Women’s Day’. Today we take a minute to celebrate one of the greats amidst the NBA world - stretched far across the globe off the court as well. Tim Duncan took time during Episode 18 to share his thoughts on Spurs Assistant Coach Becky Hammon. A man of few words already, Tim kept is short and simple but real & raw in describing the impact & magnitude Becky Hammon has had on the NBA. A position she has earned & continues to prove, why females belong.
Episode 71: Paul Millsap
For the first time, making his debut on RT #TeamRichard … welcome to the fam, Paul Millsap. Following his debut after missing 40+ games due to injury, Paul weighs in on his first game back, the emotions that went into it all as well as the kindness (or lack thereof) from certain teammates - bet you all would never guess. Movies, celebrity resemblances, Richard’s take on what is going on with his Alma Mater and a whole lot more. Happy Friday!
Devin Harris (Maverick style)
Flashback Friday to that one time Devin Harris was a Dallas Maverick & the Mavs were in town to play the Denver Nuggets. At that time as Richard likes to say: To my teammate twice over. The two former teammates (at the time) along with Katy Winge catch up to talk a little bit of everything.
Episode 69: LeBron James & DJ Montage
As promised #TeamChanning ... lives on (kind of). We should probably come up with a new hashtag but none the less as #TeamRichard & Mason Plumlee said last week, “the show must go on,” .. it does/it did. King James & the one & only DJ Montage take RT to a whole new side of the map: low key chatter while playing NBA 2k & getting treatment the crew talks everything from All-Star Weekend 2018 to the new look Cavs. Respect to what had happened around the NBA trade deadline & more. What sport is LBJ taking up in his spare time & what does DJ Montage not believe in (2 things)?? ... find it all out here, NOW!
Episode 68: Gary Harris, Will Barton, Mason Plumlee
#TeamRichard still going strong, as the 3 guys join Richard to talk everything that went down in the NBA at the deadline. For the Nugget fans, hear from “Money” aka Gary Harris & “Will the Thrill” for the first time in this fashion & you won’t be disappointed. Stump the Schwab anyone? Numbers worn. Richards hair style. College chatter. ... Happy Friday!
Malik Beasley Was Present... Kind Of
The title is one you’ll soon understand. Malik Beasley joins the RT crew and he is a little on the shy side. From his love for his alma mater Florida State, the Hollywood Family he is a part of, the early NBA growth he’s gone thru - his routine, his needs... you’re in for it all.
