AIR012: Sedale Threatt – NBA veteran and L.A. Lakers great | Podcast

Play

NBA veteran and L.A. Lakers great, Sedale Threatt.

We begin by talking about the sad loss of Lakers owner, Dr. Jerry Buss. Sedale discusses his rise to the NBA and being drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers. Our chat covers his days playing with Michael Jordan and the Bulls, including a great MJ story. We talk about his three full seasons playing for the SuperSonics, his trade to the Lakers and the players-only meeting, prior to Magic Johnson’s shock retirement in 1991. He speaks about his post-NBA playing career, his thoughts on the 2013 Lakers and his passion for teaching the game – having established the Australian Basketball College.
