Episode #13: Channing Frye: The Mindset of an NBA Champion

This week on #RaisingAthletes, we speak with former Cleveland Cavalier NBA Champion, Channing Frye. He discusses the importance of trying things other than basketball. For example, his first passion was the trumpet.

He lays down what he looks for in an ideal teammate and who he aspires to be as one.

We discuss mindset and what it takes to make it at every level, how you need to show up, even when or especially when things don’t go our way.

At the very end, he shares with us Lebron’s secret weapon to success… it’s so good he uses it too!

If you are finding our podcast helpful, we’d be so grateful if you’d pop over to iTunes and write a review and share us with your other sports parenting friends.
