Ahead of the 2023 season, we got a world champ in the building! Clippers legend and now Nuggets big man, DeAndre Jordan, joins Q and D on Knuckleheads. One of the greatest in-game dunkers looks back on growing up in Texas, what it was like forming Lob City with Blake Griffin and CP3, and how he was surprised when he became All-NBA First Team. DeAndre looks back on some of his biggest dunks and chops it up about finally winning a championship with Denver last season. World champ for the Nuggets but a Clipper for life — tune in!
