The Weekly OT #36: Craig Hodges’ Long Shot and Others
Without a doubt, the highlight of my podcast listening this week was Open Run’s interview with Craig Hodges. He has just released a new book, Long Shot: The Triumphs and Struggles of an NBA Freedom Fighter and Jesse and Stefan talk to him about the era he covers in the book:
Craig Hodges is many things: NBA Champion, 3-point sharpshooter, social justice activist, and now, author. He joins us to talk about his days playing alongside Michael Jordan on the legendary Bulls squads of the ’90s, facing off against the Bad Boys, the ins and outs of the Triangle offense—and the visit to the White House that would change his life forever.
Most interesting quote was about the Bulls and MJ: “..and the cool part, people, youknow, love MJ to death, but we would not have won one championship without Bill Cartwright.”
Conan: Exiles continues to (greatly) surprise and differentiate itself from Ark, but my concern is that it I won’t feel good after a session. Bad juju, or taking pleasure in the wrong things. Hmmm…
