Kyle and Seerat are joined by Atlanta Hawks center Clint Capela. They start their conversation by detailing his beginnings as a young athlete in Switzerland and his first impressions upon arrival to the NBA.

Next, they shine a spotlight on the Rockets’ Game 7 meltdown versus the Warriors in the 2018 Western Conference finals and his chemistry with James Harden while he was in Houston (31:30). Finally, they discuss the state of the Hawks, speculate on Clint’s future in the league, and dive into his relationship with Trae Young (53:36).
