Two-time NBA Champion, NBA Finals MVP and Boston Celtics radio analyst Cedric Maxwell joins the show to discuss his book "If These Walls Could Talk", where he opens up about his life and career, and shares some incredible insight into the Celtics Dynasty in the 80's. Cedric also shares stories about his time spent with the LA Clippers as a teammate of my dad, why he sacrificed his numbers to stay in Boston, and what led to his departure after helping led the team to a championship. I asked Cedric about his recent Draymond Green beef and if the game is better or worse off with league's emphasis on less physical play and shooting more 3-pointers.

KJ Live - Dijon Thompson

We caught up with UCLA Basketball alum and 2005 NBA Draft pick (54th) Dijon Thompson about his unconventional basketball journey, growing up the son of a single mom, and how his life changed when his stepdad entered the picture. Dijon opens up about his early influences, his high-school recruitment, and why he chose UCLA over UConn, Syracuse and Arizona (a nice tidbit in the pod about his visit to Zona). Dijon also shares why he is at peace with where he was drafted, why his game didn't mesh in Mike D'Antoni's "seven seconds or less" system, playing for Lakers legend Michael Cooper in the G-League, his career overseas, and transitioning back into the "real world." #allballSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
