What Movie would Dino Babers recommend for him? The 2016 drama, Manchester by the Sea, starring Kyle Chandler (a native of New York). Never saw it, but I heard it’s good, so there’s that.
Interesting nugget o’interest: His cousin is retired NBA starter Rod Strickland. I guess athleticism runs in the family.
Let’s get a look atcha: There’s no video of Strickland on the internet, but here is a throwback to his cousin’s insane handles.
