This episode I talk to a friend, and teammate on the streetball courts of New York City, Roman Perez. Roman grew up in New York City where he was bullied as a child, but eventually made his way to playing professional basketball in the Dominican Republic.
I loved this episode because Roman talks about the real life of a basketball player. It's not a straightforward path to being a pro...he went to school in Utah, then back in New York, and had to deal with tons of struggle along the way.
Now, he's coaching kids and helping them better their lives through basketball in the Bronx, which is where we did the episode on location, in the same gym where he trains his athletes.
