Episode #36- Rashaad powell

1/20/2018- One of my dream podcasts, Seattle Pro-Am Commissioner and ex-pro baller Rashaad Powell joined me to break down his playing career both locally around the state of Washington & overseas in places like Saudi Arabia and Indonesia. He also explained why the University of Washington Men's Basketball team has a strong connection to the Pro-Am & why there are so many successful basketball players from Seattle in the NBA. He told stories about watching DeJounte Murray (San Antonio Spurs) & Jaylen Nowell (University of Washington) since they were children, the day Kobe Bryant came to the Pro-Am, & the "Midnight Madness" game the night before Jamal Crawford's wedding. 

Rashaad is an instrumental part of keeping the basketball community alive in Seattle, both with his work with the Pro-Am & his time spent coaching at his Alma mater, Renton High School.
