Former NBA player and current assistant coach for the Atlanta Hawks, Greg Foster, joined Dukes & Bell to talk about playing against Michael Jordan, "The Last Dance" documentary, plus what does he think about the Hawks young stars Cam Reddish and Trae Young.

When asked if Cam Reddish can be a special player in the NBA.

“There’s no doubt about it, and I think you saw glimpses of that later in the season," Foster said. "What I always saw from Cam, Day 1 being on the defensive side of the ball, was his ability to compete defensively. And he was doing things out there as a young guy that we have a lot of veteran players that can’t get it done. He was making up for missed assignments and defensive breakdowns with his length and athleticism. He really saved a lot of plays for us on the defensive side of the ball and he competes, he gets steals and get out and lead the break.

"For Cam it was all about his offense slowing down, and that’s the same for every rookie that comes into this league. The speed of the game is such that it’s just going to take some time for the game to slow down offensively. But because he competes defensively night in and night out, his offense caught up and you saw how special he can become.”
