Unwind: Kevin Martin on NFL vs Trump, big men shooting threes, and life as an NBA ambassador

Mumbai: Unconventional. The word perhaps most used to describe Kevin Martin's playing career. He wasn't the tallest, strongest or the fastest. Yet, he managed to carve out a space for himself in basketball's biggest arena – National Basketball Association (NBA) – with his sharp mind and a will to grind it till the end.

He had one of the strangest looking three-point shots in NBA but no one will argue its effectiveness. Martin averaged around 18 points a game and was part of a clan that ushered in a new era of smaller, three-point scoring guards.

After 12 years in NBA, Martin retired at the end of the 2016-17 season, at the age of 33 to spend more time with his family.

We caught up with the former Sacramento Kings and Minnesota Timberwolves star, famous for his philanthropic activities in his hometown in Ohio and across the world, for the latest episode of Unwind.

The interview is a part of Firstpost's Unwind series. Watch Indian hockey team captain Rani Rampal's interview here.
