In this episode of Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles, the guys are joined by Celtics’ stars Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum. You’ll be surprised to learn the identity of the first person to put a number on Kyrie when he was a rookie. Everybody then shares their best Coach K stories, and we also learn how Drake almost got Kyrie to wear Kentucky blue, and what it was like for Jayson to be the next prodigy in St. Louis. Kyrie then explains the origin of his absurd layup package, as well as what his dad used to have him do that made his handles second to none. He and Jayson also touch on the influence that Kobe has had on both their games. Jayson tells the story of being starstruck last year when Kobe reached out to him during the playoffs, and then explains what he learned from working out with him in the off-season. Kyrie says that Kobe was one of the few people he went to for advice when he was debating his decision to leave LeBron and the Cavaliers. Finally, laugh along as Kyrie and Jayson joke about the time they almost squared up. Knuckleheads keeps on rolling.
At a time when I was on the fence as to what I was going to do, it was actually Coach K who convinced me to make the leap.
