Welcome to The Post Game, a podcast about the game after the game. On every episode, Kent State standout and the host of the program, Trevor Huffman, speaks with a former pro athlete about life after sports, transitioning to new careers and the stories of what happens after the lights go out.
On this episode of The Post Game podcast, former NBA star and Rookie of the Year Damon Stoudamire joins the program. During the interview, Damon discusses what it was like growing up in Portland before gentrification, how it felt to play in front of his hometown, the biggest “What Ifs?” from his time with the Raptors and Blazers, the unfair criticism lobbed at him and his teammates during the “Jailblazers” era, and his transition from running the point to running his own team as a head coach.
