Today we welcome Felicia Garland, mom of NBA superstar Darius Garland of the Cleveland Cavs whose dad is former NBA player Winston Garland.
Darius has always loved the game and we talk about his rise to fame. The “Tennessee Mr. Basketball” winner was a five-star recruit, ranked among the best point guards in the 2018 class, and a McDonald’s All-American, recruited by Vanderbilt after high school. After an injury cut short his college career, Felicia tells us how things played out and how he fought back to make it to draft night, going 5th, and a future in the NBA including the excitement of his debut game.
Darius is represented by Clutch Sports who also manage Lebron James and Anthony Davis, and we talk about what it’s been like for Darius to be amongst the elite of the NBA. Wendy and Felicia relive the 2020 season, the hiatus, the disappointment of not being in the bubble and her advice to other moms.
