Show Notes:

Rich Spotlight: Kendall Gill Enjoyed the time playing in the Big 3 League founded by Ice Cube but felt his age negatively impacted how he was viewed as a player Stays in shape today through boxing Boxing was his first sport he started playing and didn’t even like basketball Played multiple sports and starting playing basketball when his family moved to the suburbs of Chicago He was convinced that he would play at Michigan St., however, the morning after making the decision to attend Michigan St. he changed his mind a signed with Illinois Greatest moment in his playing career is making the Final Four in 1989 with Illinois on the team labeled, “Flyin’ Illini” Suffered devasting migraine headaches throughout his NBA career Feels that he could be in the Hall of Fame if he wouldn’t have let so many distractions cloud his mental focus Biggest regret in his NBA career is not agreeing to a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers Currently working as an NBA studio analyst for Comcast Sportsnet in Chicago for the Chicago Bulls Words of Wisdom from Kendall Gill: “Define yourself for yourself or you’ll be trapped in someone else’s fantasies and eaten alive.”
