Three-time Olympian / NBA Champion and Australia’s first ever NBA player, Luc Longley.
We chat about Luc’s early sporting career, his formative years playing basketball and representing Australia at the Olympic Games. Luc tells us how he was recruited to play college basketball for the University of New Mexico. We discuss his 10-year NBA career and how he prepared to match-up against an era of dominant big men, unlikely to be ever seen again. We also examine Luc’s championship years with Chicago and his experiences playing alongside Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman. The conversation is very candid and Luc’s sense of humour is notable.
