VIDEO- Georges Niang and Kate Scott Join the John Kincade Show
The Sixers are Red Hot. They just pulled off a big comeback win over the Grizzlies last night. Now they have won 28 of their last 34 games. And they are squarely in the mix for the one seed in the East. And today, two people from that team joined the John Kincade Show for their Open House week. PBP Announcer Kate Scott, and the 3-point specialist and trash talk expert Georges Niang.
Niang did not hold back. His interview with Kate, John, Bob Cooney, Pat Egan, and Jamie Lynch gave him a chance to show off his broadcasting chops. Kate Scott herself pointed out that once Georges Niang stops hitting 3’s, a future career in broadcasting is certainly on the table. He talked about his career, how he became a 3-point specialist, his knack for trash-talking, and more.
But the biggest takeaway for Sixers fans will be what Georges Niang had to say about public enemy number 1 Ben Simmons. He was very candid about what Ben Simmons did to the team last year.
‘”Well Ben Simmons kind of handicapped us at the beginning last year… I don’t know how much he made but it was a max contract. You take that off the books, he’s not playing, and now you have to figure out where other role players have to step up… When you don’t know who you are going to have a night in and night out… Last year was difficult because you didn’t know who you were going to have.”
He also got into the big difference having a full year with a healthy James Harden is making for the team and for himself.
“You get a full year under your belt playing with James Harden, and you see how crafty he is and how much attention he draws… We have a bunch of guys that do a great job of going by their guy and getting into the paint. Then my guy is still stupid enough to help. So they pass me the ball, and I make the shot.”
The conversation with Kate Scott and Georges Niang was must see. They also got into the team chemistry, the leadership behind the scenes, and more. You can check out the full conversation below…
