NBA Finals Edition: Special Interview With Will Avery
Follow Will on Twitter: @Will_Avery5
My special guest Will Avery was drafted in the 1999 NBA lottery by the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he played three seasons of a more than decade long professional career. Before that he played two seasons at Duke after attending Oak Hill and Westside High here in Augusta, where he was a part of a state championship team in 1995.
Will is currently heavily involved in coaching, training, teaching, and mentoring the young and aspiring basketball players in our community. He is my go-to guy for all things basketball. Learn more about his activities at www.willaverybasketballcamps.com/.
I think Will and I say in the interview that this NBA season is the best we've ever seen. I've been blogging and tweeting (@AugBball) about the playoffs as much as possible. First the Thunder-Spurs series. Then the Warriors' comeback against the Thunder. And now right after Lebron James's historic two game stretch and as we are looking forward to game 7 in Golden State, I asked Will to let me record our conversation about this great NBA run and the final game of the season Sunday.
Bonus: During the last few minutes of the interview, Will updates us about a few notable local girls basketball players, which is timely with the high schools in the middle of their summer league schedule and the AAU evaluation period coming.
