Keldon Johnson's mom, Rochelle Johnson
In today’s episode of Court-Side Moms, we welcome Rochelle Johnson, mother of Team USA Olympian & San Antonio Spurs wing Keldon Johnson! She tells us all about the early days of Keldon’s basketball career, from the first time he picked up a ball, to his time at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, and the stressful recruiting period that brought him to the Kentucky Wildcats.
She walks us through Keldon’s decision to leave Kentucky after one year, the emotions she had leading up to the NBA Draft, and why getting taken by the Spurs made for a perfect start to his career.
We hear about Keldon’s time at the Olympics with Team USA, how she dealt with him having COVID-19, and everything else that comes with being an NBA mom!
