We rockin’ with another classic this week, with the OG tall-guy point forward, Tim Thomas. The New Jersey legend looks back on being ranked No. 1 in the country over Kobe during their senior year of high school, choosing to go to Villanova before the league, and how he became good friends with 50 Cent. Truly one of the greatest high school hoopers of all time and a certified bucket — Tap in!

  1. Relationship with Kobe at an early age (10:15)
  2. 1996 McDonald’s All-American Game (13:03)
  3. Going to Villanova instead of straight to the league (16:36)
  4. Playing for the Knicks and playing for his favorite team (24:29)
