Thurl Talk

Georges Niang on the Jazz/Nuggets series, social justice in the bubble, and finding his way in the league

Thurl Bailey is joined by Georges NiangĀ (Utah Jazz – Forward | #31) to talk about learning from the loss to the Denver Nuggets in game 7 of the NBA playoffs, the pros and cons of playing without fans in the building, and how to get through shooting slumps.

Georges also talks about the importance of understanding your role, trusting your teammates, and the impact the players have had on social justice in the bubble.

Then we dive into Georges growing up in Massachusetts, the strong relationship he has with both of his parents, how perseverance led him to the NBA, and why he wished he would have dreamt bigger than just making it to the NBA.

Georges also opens up about how important work ethic is, overcoming challenges while coming up through college, his podcast, “Drive and Dish”, and his passion for broadcasting.
