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.

Chris Webber
C Webb is in the building! He’s the man who’s always been at the center of the culture – from his star-studded AAU team to the legendary Fab Five years to his 15-year run in the league. The Midwest legend begins by breaking down his insanely stacked AAU teams and explaining the wild Midwest basketball culture he thrived in while growing up. Then it’s all about Michigan and the Fab Five. The boys who defined college basketball at the time. He gets into the baggy shorts and the buzz cuts, what that ride to fame as a group of college friends was like, and how painful it was experiencing losses in back-to-back championship games. Then he chats post-college, how his mother creatively helped him get over The Timeout, and how the draft process saw him through some hard times. From there, the guys take turns imagining what a C Webb-Shaq duo would’ve done to the basketball world, and Chris gives the backstory of why Shaq pushed for Penny Hardaway. It all worked out, as C Webb linked up with part of Run TMC in Golden State and snatched Rookie of the Year. He goes on to explain his Godfather-like contract, which allowed him to be a free agent after his first season, and what sent him to the East to reunite with Juwan Howard in D.C. The guys then get into C Webb’s finding out that he’d been traded to Sacramento ... while in a grocery store, and why he was so adamant about not wanting to play there. Things changed fast, though, as teammates made him love it there and his arrival led to the Kings’ most successful stretch. C Webb then touches on the final years of his career, what it was like to play with AI in Philly, and what he’s been doing since he retired, including growing his collection of African-American artifacts and teaching a master’s class at Wake Forest. We see you, Professor! C Webb has truly done it ALL. From the game of basketball to the game of life, Chris Webber is a hands-down inspiration. Tune IN!
