Tim Hardaway Sr. Joins Q and D | Knuckleheads Quarantine: E14

Chicago legend Tim Hardaway joins the fellas this week on Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. Tim takes us through his journey growing up in Chicago, getting his handles on the city sidewalks, heading off to UTEP, and creating the ‘UTEP two-step’. Laugh along as Tim tells us how Don Nelson snatched him late in the draft and then just how confident he got after his first All-Star Game. Hear about the creation of Run TMC and learn why that scoring phenomenon lasted for only two seasons. Then Tim gets into his Miami years, what it was like ballin’ in the mid ‘90s, and how great it feels to have his jersey retired by the Heat. Tim then discusses Tim Jr. playing in the league and tells a hilarious story about the last time they’ll ever play one-on-one. Tim Hardaway is no joke but he’s got a lot of ‘em! You won’t want to miss this one.

It’s the one we’ve been waiting for. That walking bucket, Will Bynum, finally drops by to talk shop on Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. Just some backstory: Bynum is the reason for this podcast. We wanted to highlight players that the casual fan might not know, but who the NBA community reveres and honors. Will the Thrill is that hooper. We hear about his start in Chicago, the myth being made. His move to Lute Olson’s Arizona and why he left for Georgia Tech. The hours he spent on his craft. His overseas journey. Finally busting into the NBA. To his new life as a trainer. Will talks about the game like the craftsman he is. But don’t let his humble nature fool you. The man is a basketball savant and a teacher. He helped D-Rose get his game back solid. He can also hit you with the oral history of how the Shammgod traveled the world and back again. You can’t miss this one. It’s extra-extra-special. Will means everything to Chicago hoops. His impact is felt throughout the city. It’s an honor to have Will Bynum join the show.

Nick the Quick Joins Q and D | Knuckleheads

Nick the Quick showed UP for this week’s episode of Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles! The Lakers legend looks back on his Exel-lent career: From playing on Bobby Huggins’s tenacious Bearcats squad to bringing his flash to the Lakers, Nick Van Exel’s grind never stopped. He shares stories of what a kid named Kobe was like as a rookie and about that time the Lakers had four All-Stars on the same roster. That leads the guys into a discussion of stacked teams that just can’t seem to win. Nick gives credit to Steve Kerr, who showed up in that ’03 playoff series to send Nick and the Mavs home. He also breaks down the role of sixth man and makes it clear that real basketball players know that what really counts isn’t starting, it’s being on the floor in the last two minutes of the game — when it’s “winning time.” Darius and Nick reminisce on their Portland days together. Nick reveals that Nick the Quick is his favorite nickname simply because of who gave it to him. Tune in to hear the full basketball journey from our main man Nick Van Exel.
