Telling Chet Holmgren's unique Minnesota origin story | Heard Thundering with Brett Dawson
This week, Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis will retire Chet Holmgren’s high school jersey, and it got me thinking about what it must have been like to see Chet play in those formative days. There’s a story there, and in Minnesota nobody tells a story like Chip Scoggins. The award-winning columnist from the Minneapolis Star Tribune joins me to talk about the days when people told him he had to go see the skinny kind from Minneahaha — and what he saw when he did.  Show highlights(02:39) Scoggins remembers the first time he saw Holmgren and thinking "What in the world? I had never seen anything like this."(9:21) Scoggins noticed Holmgren's toughness from the start. "You're not going to bully him."(10:55) Holmgren's high school days were "a traveling circus."(20:30) Comparisons with Kevin Durant when it comes to their frame and skill.Producer: Jacquelyn MusgroveCreative Director: Michael LaneDirector of Content: Mike ShermanGuest informationChip Scoggins on Twitter:  https://twitter.com/chipscogginsMinneapolis Star-Tribune: https://www.startribune.com/chip-scoggins/6370598/Related storiesChet Holmgren’s dunk sends the stat geeks down a rabbit hole: https://selloutcrowd.com/okc-thunder/2023/12/29/chet-holmgrens-dunk-sends-the-stat-geeks-down-a-rabbit-hole/How the Thunder’s Chet Holmgren is adjusting to physical play and thriving at center: https://selloutcrowd.com/the-latest/2023/11/24/how-the-thunders-chet-holmgren-is-adjusting-to-physical-play-and-thriving-at-center/More from Brett DawsonWebsite: https://selloutcrowd.com/Personal website: https://brett-dawson.com/Twitter: www.twitter.com/selloutcrowd_ | www.twitter.com/bdawsonwritesFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/selloutcrowdcom/Sellout Crowd on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/@Sellout-CrowdSubscribe to Brett DawsonYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/@Brett-DawsonSpotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/38Bc4NlKdHEoFeVMcDsRiC?si=45f310fa4e5c411e&nd=1Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/heard-thundering-with-brett-dawson/id1707909462Amazon Music https://selloutcrowd.com/the-latest/2023/11/24/how-the-thunders-chet-holmgren-is-adjusting-to-physical-play-and-thriving-at-center/
