Kyle Hines speaks to basketball executive Trajan Langdon, who accomplished so much during his time in EuroLeague as a player.

The American won the EuroLeague title in his debut season with CSKA, the first of four consecutive appearances in the EuroLeague championship game. He is also a three-time All-EuroLeague Team member and was the EuroLeague Final Four MVP in 2008 as his CSKA Moscow side won their second title in three seasons.

Langdon discusses his journey from California to professional basketball, via Alaska and Duke. He describes CSKA’s exuberant celebrations following their EuroLeague triumph in 2006, reflects on his involvement with the USA national team and talks about legends of the sport, including Michael Jordan and LeBron James.

Kyle and Trajan also chat about how to build a career in basketball, how you know when it’s time to retire and about how Langdon transitioned from a star player to front office roles in the NBA.
