Dorell Wright

This week on Knuckleheads we got one of the OG’s of South Central L.A. hoops, Dorell Wright. D Wright chops it up with Q and D about starting basketball late and still getting drafted out of high school. He recalls being a rookie when Shaq got to the Heat, why he and D Wade were so tight, and what it was like to learn from Pat Riley. Dorell looks back on the early years of Steph and Klay, and what led up to his leading the league in threes during his Golden State tenure. D Wright is straight family — tune in!
