    We took a few weeks off but we are coming back hot! We have been asked by many listeners to get a USC alumni on this show and who better to get than one of the most exciting players from the program? Jeff Trepagnier joins us to share his basketball experiences for an episode that we know you'll love. Trepagnier is without a doubt one of the most explosive players to wear a USC uniform. A fun fact that most hoop fans might not know is that he was a phenomenal track athlete and took 2nd place in the Pac 10 Championships for 2 years in a row with a high jump of 7'1'' which is tied for 5th best in USC school history. As for basketball, he helped lead USC to a Sweet 16 run then went on to get drafted 35th overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers. He had a great career in both the NBA and overseas and holds the record for most steals (12) in a EuroLeague game. He shares great stories about growing up in Compton, USC, college dunk contest, Henry Bibby, Brian Scalabrini, Draft night, Jerry Stackhouse, experiences overseas, Compton Magic and MUCH more. Big thanks to Jeff for taking the time to share his journey and excellent stories with us. His story is inspiring being a kid who was not a big time recruit but put in the work to carve out a successful career to do something he loves. We love that he is still involved with the game, giving back to the program that helped him make his NBA dream come true. Thank you Jeff Trepagnier!You can find this episode on Apple, Spotify or any source for podcasts.Follow us on social media for news, updates and highlight reels!Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/notin.myhouse.79Instagram- @Not_in_my_house_podcastTwitter - @NOTINMYHOUSEpc

    Some episodes just deserve love for both basketball and non-basketball reasons. Isaiah Thomas should be every young hooper's role model and recognized by all. From growing up with very little opportunity to be seen in the hoops world, to developing into an overseas star, Isaiah carved his own path to success and made a name for himself. You saw the desire and will in his game along with his high arching jumper, hypnotizing moves off the dribble, and the occasional electrifying posters. The highlights caught our eye, but it's what he continued to do when the ball stopped bouncing that touched us the most. A career-ending accident would defeat or completely break most people but for Isaiah Thomas, it is quite the opposite. You see the same heart and desire in his day-to-day life after his accident and his willingness to be open and help inspire others. We just had to reach out and learn more.We love Isaiah and it was important for us to recognize him as a player but to also learn more about his story after basketball. He is doing big things with his clothing brand and we know that his greatness will only continue to grow. We know this because thats just the type of dude he is. This is the one person we know that will never give up.

    The real hoopers know just how special this one is. However, not all know just how incredible his journey in basketball, life and transformation is. We are blessed to have Jelani Gardner join us for a conversation that will move and motivate you in whole different way than what you're used to on this podcast. Jelani Gardner grew up in the Los Angeles area in an incredible era for high school hoops. The 6'6'' guard from St John Bosco High School dazzled packed gyms with the smooth handles, no-look passes, jaw-dropping dunks, and undeniable passion, love and desire for the game. After working his way to being the number one ranked player in California, Gardner was selected to the McDonald's All-American game and played at both Cal and Pepperdine. You may have wondered why Gardner was not in the NBA. The average person would look at Gardner and see a physical speciman who seems perfectly fit and healthy to be an NBA star. Gardner was diagnosed with a kidney disease during his college career, playing through this whole college and pro career with his kidneys working at 40 percent. Unable to pass an NBA physical, he still managed to have an incredible career playing overseas even after a kidney transplant. The desire and will it took on day to day basis is one of the most incredible feats we have ever heard on this podcast and we know you will have a whole new respect for Gardner, his game, his desire and overall view on life. His commitment to the game, his faith, his family and giving back to the youth speaks volumes of the person he is today.Kind of like watching Jelani throwing over-the-head passes or skying high for a dunk on a fastbreak on the court, this is one of those episodes where you just shake your head in disbelief. He is without a doubt a fighter and true warrior both on and off the court. This won't be the last time you hear about Gardner as his kids have serious game too! Keep an eye out for the Gardner brothers. They have some incredible guidance from their pops so we have a feeling that you're all in for a treat!Thank you Jelani Gardner!Support JAG Basketball at https://jagbasketball.comYou can find this episode on Apple, Spotify or any source for podcasts.Follow us on social media!Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/notin.myhouse.79Instagram- @Not_in_my_house_podcastTwitter - @NOTINMYHOUSEpc

We have been wanting to do this episode for quite some time and it did not disappoint one bit. Closs was ahead of his time. In an era where 7 footers played on the block with their back to the basket, the 7'3'' Closs could handle the ball, shoot the rock from outside, and is without question one of if not THE best blocker of all time.

    Believe in yourself or nobody else will. This really is one of the most inspiring hoop journeys that we have had the honor to learn about. It's our pleasure to have Darryl McDonald in the house! Of course like any hoop fan we can watch his highlight reels on repeat in awe, but it was truly special to look beyond the highlights and hear about the work put in and the obstacles that had to be overcome to reach success. The no-look passes, incredible handles, and knack for steals make the nickname “Mr. Excitement” more than fitting. The Rucker Park legend dropped out of high school and never played a minute of High School basketball. His path from the blacktop to Westchester CC to Texas A&M itself will earn your respect, but the grind isn't even close to ending there. He was not selected in the 1988 NBA Draft and would be cut multiple times from the CBA and other professional leagues. Nearly every hooper's basketball dreams would be shattered, but D-Mac kept hooping, kept grinding, and found a home in the NBL. He is the NBL's all-time leader in steals, 2nd All-time in assists, a 3x NBL Champion, 2x Allstar game MVP and his fingerprints are all over the growth of basketball in Australia. We are very grateful for our time with D-Mac. This episode will inspire a lot of young athletes and he shared some great stories about growing up in Harlem, Rucker Park, Joe Hammond, Texas A&M, the draft process, both the lifestyle & grind of the CBA, Brett Brown, NBL, coaching, kangaroos and MUCH more including perhaps one of the most bizarre overseas stories we have ever heard on this show!
