Kyle Hines welcomes Zach LeDay to his show: “Everybody is putting their ego aside here”


A new season of A Quarter With Kyle Hines made its debut with the four-time Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion welcoming a new guest, Zach LeDay, his new teammate at AX Armani Exchange Milan.

A Quarter With Kyle Hines, a series of one-on-one conversations about basketball and the off-court lifestyle of EuroLeague stars, enters its second season. Hines, who has seen his EuroLeague career touch down in four different countries over the last decade, brings his insider’s knowledge of the competition and the day-to-day life of an athlete to inform in-depth conversations with his teammates, former teammates and opponents alike. His guests last season included Nick Calathes, Othello Hunter and Derrick Williams.

Hines and LeDay have in common more than their ability to excel in the EuroLeague as undersized big men. Both chose this season to join forces in Milan under head coach Ettore Messina to try to lift Italy’s most-crowned team ever to greater heights. “Everyone putting their ego aside, giving up things individually to try to come together and achieve something great for all of us,” LeDay says. “And I think that we have a good chance to do that. That’s what we’re working towards every day here.”
