Kenny “The Jet” Smith joined Dukes & Bell to talk about the restart of the NBA season, who he thinks the favorites could be in Orlando, plus would Kenny opt out of playing this season if he were still a player?

Kenny told the guys if he would play in the NBA bubble in Orlando.

“My son who plays at the University of North Carolina asked me that question," said Smith. "I said 23-year old me wouldn’t even hesitate. He’s like why? I said because I didn’t have a wife, I didn’t have a family. But at 31 my thought process might be different because I have more responsibility.

"But if I were 24 and under, I wouldn’t even hesitate because I was living alone. I was living in Sacramento, my parents were living in New York. I would not even have hesitated. But 31 might be different.”
