3: The Crossover: Darryl Middleton
Joe Arlauckas welcomes CSKA Moscow Assistant Coach Darryl Middleton to the first episode of The Crossover in 2021. They chart Darryl’s journey from playing Basketball in the parks of New York to Europe, and a staggering 25 year professional playing career. The duo reminisce about their head-to-head battles on the court back in the day, where Joe even gets called out for welching on a bet! Darryl explains his relentless work ethic, one he passed on to a young Marc Gasol when the two were teammates. We hear how Darryl got his coaching opportunity at CSKA - only after he’d worked as a chef in his own restaurant. Finally, Middleton goes ‘One on One’ with Joe, before testing his knowledge in ‘The Crossover Test’.
