We visit with old friend Edy Tavares, who used to play center for the Atlanta Hawks, but who now does his thing for Raptors 905 of the NBA’s Developmental League.
Edy and I discuss life in Canada, playing 1-on-1 over the summer against Dwight Howard, his unlikely journey to becoming a professional basketball player, and what’s it’s like being coached by Jerry Stackhouse.
Edy also weighs in on Christiano Ronaldo vs. Messi, and he tells the unlikely story of the Atlanta pro sports jersey that he owned several years before he set foot in the United States.
