As the NBA gets closer to crowning a champion, former Alabama assistant coach and current Brooklyn Nets director of player personnel Gregg Polinsky stepped Inside the Locker Room to share some stories about coaching under Wimp Sanderson.

One of those stories Polinsky shared a number of stories about his times as an assistant coach under Wimp Sanderson. The former Alabama assistant recounted how one bitter SEC rival always had Sanderson’s attention when preparing for a season.

“So he’s going through the whole schedule and this and that and then he said, ‘Except for Auburn! We’ve got to beat them.’” Polinsky said.

The current director of player personnel for the Brooklyn Nets also took time to review the NBA playoffs and survey the landscape of the NBA and college basketball.

Inside the Locker Room airs every weekday from 7-9 AM on Tide 99.1 and the radioPup app.
