Grandmama was a straight-up bucket! Tune in!

  2. Tupac, Snoop Dogg and UNLV’s impact on the culture (17:45)
  3. Signing with Converse — Grandmama commercials and favorite shoes (24:13)
  4. Going to New York, playing for the Knicks (49:32)

Yo Bla, who we got?


We looking back on the episode with Grandma, aka Larry Johnson,


man, it was a good one.


This was my all-time favorite. I mean when everybody used to wear the UNLV clothing when they came out and they was killing. They beat Duke in the championship man like man talk about his nickname just like all the commercials he used to do


but that's the reason I used to wear the part up the middle bro


that I ain't gonna hold you now that the Larry Johnson LJ part up the middle


I even when I had some hair in my head that I was trying to do that.


He was the first guy with the gold teeth in the league, right?


Hey man, listen, the dope thing for me was like you said, man, just being able to go talk to a dude that we


looked up to in a certain way you know what I'm saying on the low you know I was a


short forward I used to try and kind of do some of the things to LJD


are nowhere near as explosive,


but you know what I'm saying?


Like this was a dope one too because I felt like,


you know, people don't really talk a lot about LJ,


he don't get a lot of love,


like I know how we in the NBA attorney feel about a lot of


players man was watching him man a lot of them early 90 players was watching him


do his thing man for sure him and you starting off with you and LV with, Grant, you know, Greg Anthony and all.


And Stacy Yawg went, but they did and then how he took it to Charlotte and kept going through


the league all the way to the LJ symbol for the three at the Knicks, man.
