Fresh off a much-needed Rockets win in Dallas, Thursday’s episode of “The Lager Line” welcomes starting point guard Kevin Porter Jr. to the show for a review of the 2022-23 season to date.
For the season, “Scoot” is averaging a career-high 19.1 points (41.0% FG, 33.8% on 3-pointers), 6.1 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1.3 steals, and he’s potentially sticking around in Houston for several more years after signing a contract extension in October.
Topics discussed on the podcast include Porter’s assessment of the team’s season to date and his personal performance; the importance of head coach Stephen Silas and lead assistant John Lucas in his development; growth shown by second-year prospects Jalen Green, Alperen Sengun, and Usman Garuba; and much more.
The episode concludes with a look at Porter’s new business venture, Sukuta, which features digital collectibles, interactive behind-the-scenes opportunities for his fans, and beyond.
Thursday’s full podcast can be listened to below. Each episode of the show is also available via flagship radio station SportsTalk 790, as well as to all major podcast distributors under “The Lager Line.”
