Darius Bazley's mom, Lynnita Bazley

Court-side moms

Our guest today, Lynnita Bazley, mother of Darius Bazley, forward with the Oklahoma City Thunder, joins the show to talk about her son’s unorthodox journey to the NBA, including a decision to pursue the NBA G League instead of college, and an internship with one of the most iconic shoe brands, New Balance.  She talks about the first time Darius picked up a basketball and how that turned into a realization that he could one day turn professional. She takes us through Darius’ abnormal career path, including the process of committing and de-committing to colleges, his intentions to play in the NBA G League instead, and an internship with New Balance.  We talk about ‘Swish’, the book she wrote about raising Darius, her experience at the NBA Draft Night, his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder organization, and what life is like for her as a Court-Side Mom!
