Cardiac Hill Podcast: Steven Adams & Pitt Careers in the NBA

Jesse chats with Andrew Schlecht of Down to Dunk, an Oklahoma City Thunder podcast, on the success of the former Pitt student from New Zealand and the success of Panthers in the NBA.

It's like that kid that you watch grow up, and then hear about his success years later.

Well, sort of.

For one, I have no idea what this is actually like because I'm still in college and don't have any kids to meet the friends of. On the other hand, we only saw one year of Steven Adams, and he wasn't exactly what your Grandpa Dick Vitale would refer to as a diaper dandy. But twelve picks later in the NBA Draft, a soul in Oklahoma City saw true potential in the 7-footer from Rotorua, New Zealand, and by no means has the former Panther disappointed.

Steven Adams. DeJuan Blair. Aaron Gray (aka John Krasinski). Sam Young. These names represent the most recent success by Pitt students in the Association. But how well are they actually doing?

I had the chance to talk to Andrew Schlect of Down to Dunk, an Oklahoma City Thunder Podcast, about all of this. From Steven to flopping, we breakdown the University of Pittsburgh's current role in the NBA.

Check it out, and predict the future in the poll below.
