Episode 7: Kendrick Nunn | “It’s just preparation”
Kendrick Nunn can flat out score. Everyone in the NBA is well aware of that now. But while his game was always there, the recognition and respect he deserved seemed to be overlooked at times. Coming from a high school career with 4 straight state titles, then a college career where he nearly led the nation in scoring, K-Nunn thought he was a sure-fire pick in the NBA draft. But then he wasn't. That's where his path took a turn to the G-League, and just like Duncan, he had to make his minutes count. The league started to take notice in the 2019 Summer League and from that point on, Nunn has been expanding his game, his minutes, and his reputation. In this humbling interview, K-Nunn talks about how hard it was to wait his turn, what it's like know that he has truly arrived, whether or not he feels like his journey was destiny, and much more.    RUNDOWN • Duncan and K-Nunn discuss their history together  • K-Nunn discusses the development of his game and how he has turned into a 3-level scorer  • Did playing in Oakland and being counted on purely as a scorer help advance his overall game • Was not getting drafted demoralizing or adding to the chip on his shoulder • Was going undrafted actually beneficial for him and why did he choose Golden State • Did he get the opportunities to show his game when he was in Warrior's preseason camp with Steph, KD, Klay, and Draymond • How did he accept the role of coming off the bench in the G-League when he knew he could start • Was it hard to be patient in the two years of balling out before truly getting his shot • Does he view the summer league of 2019 as his coming out party to the NBA • How did that summer influence his first year in the NBA • Where does his confidence and belief in himself come from • On his ability to always be ready • Discusses his legendary high school career and the 4 straight state championships • Have the practices been toned this year because of the crazy schedule • Does he suffer any imposter syndrome or does he feel it's destiny and he was meant to be in the NBA • Is there a specific moment that stands out that was pivotal to his success • UNDrafted Learn more about your ad choices.

Game of Zones Co-Creator, Adam Malamut - Going ISO
Adam Stanco & Noah Coslov go ISO with Adam Malamut, the co-creator of the enormously successful Bleacher Report series Game of Zones. Malamut reveals everything you always wanted to know about the show, including why it ended, which owner they angered, and why meeting Sam Hinkie was awesome (and awkward). He shares hilarious childhood memories of getting suspended for drawing a sexually explicit cartoon about his teacher and explains how Philly’s sports talk radio station, 610 WIP, influenced his impressions. Malamut also details his career in animation and how Game of Zones actually got started. Plus, he gives us a hint at what’s next for him and his brother (Game of Zones co-creator) Craig. -- If you missed the special 2-part Kobe Stories series on Rejecting the Screen, check the feed for the episodes from January 26th & 28th and enjoy hearing from former teammates, opponents, coaches and the media that go back to HS with Kobe all the way through his HOF career with the Lakers. -- Please subscribe to Rejecting the Screen, rate, review and share with your friends! -- Rejecting the Screen is part of the Locked On Podcast Network and is released on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
