As we continue to wait for the world to return to normal so the NBA can (hopefully) resume, we considered this past week at Wish an ode to the ol’ roundball. From ESPN classics to watching current NBA stars battle it out in NBA 2k, the masses are in dire need of anything to keep us going during this drought.
The Wish team was able to tap in with Hawks fan favorite, 2K Cover athlete, sneaker connoisseur, & avid businessman – J Chill, or Josh Childress. He popped by our Instagram live with @malachiformayor to discuss everything from how he got started hooping in Compton, to hitting the big shot in the Final 4 for Stanford & ultimately being the 2K5 College Hoops cover athlete before beginning an exciting pro career. He shed a ton of light on the business of international basketball, life after the league and ultimately his top 3 sneakers! Check out the interview on SoundCloud, and shop our basketball collection as we gear up to (hopefully) get the season back!
