IIn episode 3, Cassy Athena meets up with Las Vegas native, Pierre Jackson. After being drafted to the NBA, setting world records in the d-league, traveling overseas and recovering from an achilles tear in the NBA Summer League, he’s come a long way back to the top to showcase his talent at the highest level. We get exclusive access to his prized sneaker collection, meet his precious daughter and talk about some of his most personal basketball moments.
TThe summer league games are one of the greatest showcases for fresh faces trying to build a name. It’s great to see the rookies come out and show why they were drafted as well. Devin Booker did just that – and them some. This was a big game because the Pelicans had Seth Curry – who has been a big contender all summer long. Booker came out strong though – scoring 31 points to take the Suns to the championship game tomorrow night. Make sure to look out for Devin during the season!! Excited to watch his career grow.
