Will Wade saya Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was Steph Curry before Steph Curry existed

Weekdays 7AM - 9AM

LSU Basketball Coach Will Wade talked about retiring LSU great Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf’s jersey.

“It’s certainly a great honor for him and great for our program,” Wade said. “He still follows us and he came and spoke with the team before the Tennesee game.”

Wade said when he talks to his team about Abdul-Rauf he tells them “he was Steph Curry before Steph Curry.”

T-Bob asked Wade why it took so long to retire the jersey and when the ceremony will happen.

Also, Wade discussed Naz Reid, his journey in the NBA, and his four year deal with the Timberwolves.

“He’s doing great. He signed a contract at the end of last week.”

Wade broke down the verterans coming back for LSU Basketball, including Skylar Mays, Javonte Smart, and Emmitt Williams.

Finally, Wade gave his thoughts on Kavell Bigby-Williams’ good showing for the Pelicans in the summer league.
