HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Just because you are born and raised in Brooklyn doesn’t mean you have to pledge your allegiance to the hometown team, the Nets.
Sometimes the ties that bind go beyond the borough limits. For Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and NBA blogger extraordinaire Damaris Lewis that means never cutting ties with her beloved New York Knicks.
Yes, she has love for the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Miami Heat and all seven of her teams (it’s a League Pass thing, trust us). But the nearly 6-foot fashion model, dancer and member of Prince‘s famous New Power Generation band joined us on Episode 108 of the Hang Time Podcast, doing whatever she could to school us on the art of being a true basketball fan.
That’s much easier to do when you have a captive audience (as you might imagine, everyone but Rick Fox was on best behavior). And don’t let the beautiful face and runaway fashion fool you, Damaris knows the game! She weighs in on Kevin Durant and the Thunder, LeBron James and the Heat, Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers the wise old men in San Antonio and a whole lot more.
We also discuss the Derrick Rose toughness saga in Chicago as well as check in on Braggin’ Rights. Check out all of that and Damaris Lewis as she drops knowledge on Episode 108 f the Hang Time Podcast.
As always, we welcome your feedback. You can follow the entire crew, including the Hang Time Podcast, co-hosts Sekou Smith of NBA.com, Lang Whitaker of SLAM Magazine and Rick Fox of NBA TV, as well as our new super producer Gregg (just like Popovich) Waigand and the best engineer in the business, Jarell “I Heart Peyton Manning” Wall.
