Trevor Ariza's mom, Lolita Ariza
Our guest today, Lolita Ariza, mother of NBA veteran, Trevor Ariza, joins the show to talk about her son’s journey through the NBA.
She tells us about the first time Trevor picked up a basketball, why he chose UCLA during his college recruitment and takes us through a number of his stops around the NBA. She tells us why he doesn’t get enough credit for his play during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 2008-09 Championship run.
We talk about how she prioritized her and her son’s careers, and why she’s always pursuing new opportunities like writing a book and opening a restaurant. We go through the Court-Side Moms fun facts and she tells us all about being a Court-Side Mom.
