Chet Holmgren will get his first pro minutes this NBA season. First, he sat down with Eddie Gonzalez to discuss playing pickup with KD, his favorite sneakers, and more.
He’s been head-down with on-court prep. However, he is looking forward to the opportunity to grow in the league he’s been building toward since he was a kid. As the preseason is about to begin, Holmgren is eager for the opportunity to play with a team and resume the real challenges of elite basketball.
Picking up some one-on-one reps with the likes of Kevin Durant, Holmgren welcomed the hustle as compared to his endless days putting up shots and running drills on his own through his rehab.
“Cones are never going to steal the ball from you,” he joked with The ETCs host, Eddie Gonzalez.

Everyone from Durant, Sabrina Ionescu, and Travis Scott pulled up to NYC’s iconic Lincoln Center for the event.
Together, they addressed a range of topics, including:
- Chet’s preseason hustle
- His hopes for the upcoming NBA season
- His favorite Nike footwear
