Last Updated: November 11, 2022

This week, KD and Eddie are joined on “The ETCs” by famed writer, director, and producer Rick Famuyiwa, known for his work on movies and TV series like The Wood, Brown Sugar, Dope, The Chi, and The Mandalorian.

Rick, KD and Eddie talk about Rick’s journey from a high school hoops star to a walk-on at USC and all the way to Hollywood as a filmmaker. They also discuss Rick’s forthcoming Magic Johnson documentary, the difference in play styles between basketball in the 80s and basketball now, the idea of the lack of animosity in today’s game, and the role someone like Stacy from The Wood plays in real-life neighborhoods.

Plus, Kevin tries to get Rick to jump ship from his beloved Lakers to the Brooklyn Nets bandwagon and much, much more.
