Former Boston Celtics sharpshooter Matt Ryan on his NBA journey

Fans of the Boston Celtics perhaps burned by their favorite team letting Max Strus walk in favor of hanging onto fan-favorite big man Tacko Fall were nonplussed about sharpshooter Matt Ryan leaving the team after a strong summer league performance the offseason before last.

But that has been Ryan’s NBA journey thus far — long, winding, and full of unexpected turns. On a recent episode of “The Hoop Chat” podcast, host Emily Austin sat down with Minnesota Timberwolves player Matt Ryan for an insightful interview into the former Celtics’ past. Ryan shared his experiences as a two way player, discussed his college transfers, and opened up about his unconventional path to the NBA. The conversation also touched upon Ryan’s time working odd jobs during the pandemic and his mindset on chasing dreams.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear Ryan’s story for yourself.
