They also dive into pre NBA life. Did you know Jordan was accused of cheating on a test in high school? He almost gave up basketball, applied for a Nike job in fact. & Quinn?

Variety of topics are discussed such as Amin’s pick for this years League MVP – he and Evan have two different choices. They talk the best fight in NBA History. What it’s like going from a front office position to ESPN for Amin. What seems crazier, LBJ missing the playoffs or Kobe? And not to be forgotten the moment Evan met Shaq at the age of 12. Such good insight, great stories, get to it.

Talking just about anything you can imagine we take this time now to flashback to Jan for some time spent with the CLE crew and this week’s episode guest, Alec Burks.
Episode 102: Enes Kanter
This week the Portland duo is joined by the newest name Trailblazer, Enes Kanter. Several topics are discussed but the two that jump out without question: for Kanter, his inability to go anywhere ALONE due to the issues he has had with the Turkish government as well as, for those of you who are social savy you already know where this is going … can you say elevator?

The trio also talk about if the guys really were nervous coming into the league, how they handle social media trolls & clapping back & as if we have never talked about it before, it continues, anyone have time for some conspiracy theories? Another great episode in the books and I am excited for y'all to hear it for yourself.
Episode 90: Jordan Clarkson
It wasn’t his first & wont be his last ... Jordan Clarkson aka “Bucket Getter” (Thanks Channing) stops by to join RT. It was short but sweet as he opened up on various topics.

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!

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!

What a special night it was as we flash back to an evening spent in God’s Country, at L’Angolo Estate.

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 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

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.

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.
