When he was a member of the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat shooting guard Max Strus made a strong connection with interim head coach Joe Mazzulla while the latter was an assistant for Boston. Both Mazzulla and Strus started college playing at a Division II school, giving them a common point of reference, Strus told the Celtics Wire in an interview last month.
The former Celtic recently sat down with host Sean Daley of the “Fansided” podcast to talk about his path through the NCAA, why colleges slept on recruiting him, his path to the NBA, facing the Celtics in the postseason and much more.
To hear more about what got the former DePaul player to the league he is thriving in, and how his game has been shaped by each of his stops in the league, take a look at the clip embedded below to hear it all in full.
