Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala on white players in the NBA

Ever wonder what Black NBA players have to say about their white colleagues? Former Boston Celtics assistant coach and player Evan Turner joined the host of his “Point Forward” podcast Andre Iguodala on JJ Redick’s “Old Man and the 3” podcast recently, and a discussion on this topic broke out with Redick enjoying the exchange.

Spencer Hawes, a former player, is remembered for his love of hip-hop, and fellow Boston alum Kelly Olynyk, another player, is revealed to be a rapper. It’s a reminder that musical tastes in the NBA are diverse, transcending stereotypes. They also touch upon the unique experiences of white players in the NBA and the respect they garner from their peers.

The conversation then weirdly evolves into a debate about the greatness of Hall of Fame Celtics legend Larry Bird in basketball history.
