Fans of the  Minnesota Timberwolves were asked: What should Josh Okogie’s nickname be?  The answer is easy and after listening to this week’s episode with “NonStop” Josh Okogie you will think so too.  Nigerian born, Josh immigrated to the US as a 3 year old.His talent led him to the NBA at the young age of 20 and his roots led him to also play for the Nigerian National Basketball Team.  

Josh talks about what’s been like for him in Minnesota, taking the opportunity to embrace this experience and the chance to play for the Timberwolves. He shares his thoughts on this past year, calling it the most eventful in his life with many challenges from a social and political perspective.

He has been a loud voice in the Black Lives Matter movement and shares with us what he hopes to achieve through his social activism, most importantly holding people accountable for their actions and empowering those who have no voice.

He is a star with many interests and talents, smart and articulate and his insights and experiences make this a must listen to episode.We loved having him on and we hope you love listening to his story.  Not to mention we think he’s one of the swaggiest players in the NBA.
