Guest: Kendall Gill
This episode of “The All Day SJ Show” is a special one. Joining me for this edition is a true legend of Chicago Basketball in Kendall Gill.
Gill was a part of the “Flyin’ Illini” phenomenon, which was the golden age of Illinois Men’s Basketball. He was a lottery pick with the Charlotte Hornets in 1990, where he was drafted fifth overall. Gill was successful as a rookie, as he made the NBA-All Rookie First Team in 1991.
Known for his hard-nosed defense, Gill led the NBA in steals in 1999. He also is the co-holder of the NBA record for most steals in a game (11).
In this episode, we talk about the expectations for the Fighting Illini this season, as well as the “Flyin’ Illini” era. Kendall also talks about who was the toughest to guard between Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James… but who was the true G.O.A.T.? Kendall’s answer may surprise you…
Also on the show, we discuss the Bulls current rebuild and how long we have to wait to expect them to be contenders again.
