HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – You ever wonder how many Euros it takes to buy a box of Fruit Loops in Greece?
Are you curious about Allen Iverson‘s next move or the Miami Heat’s chances of chasing records this season with their “Super Trio” (or whatever we’ve decided to call LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh these days)?
We’ve got the answer for you, along with a whole lot more, on Episode 21 of the Hang Time Podcast.
Few men on the planet share the perspective on the game of basketball that our first guest, Hall of Fame coach John Thompson, can and did with us.
Thompson played on a Celtics “Super Team” of yesteryear. He competed for and won a championship as a coach at Georgetown. He’s served as a tutor and mentor to some of the game’s all-time great talents. And now he’s an acclaimed broadcaster in his post playing and coaching career, including his fine work for TNT (check the sample above) and the radio show in Washington that he has turned into a must-listen for sports fans from all walks of life.
Former Hawks and Olympiacos star Josh Childress makes his debut on the HTP this week, navigating freeway traffic (hands free, of course) to share some of his thoughts with us about his journey from California schoolboy star to NBA trailblazer and now back to the league (he was also kind enough to share his cereal adventures from abroad).
For those of you blinded by all the free agent news from elsewhere this summer, Childress will return to the league with the Phoenix Suns (and the two old guys, Steve Nash and Grant Hill, in the video above talking) this season after the Hawks traded his NBA rights to the Suns.
