LOS ANGELES — Kenny Smith got the idea while watching his son in the backyard.
It happened earlier this summer, when the two-time NBA champion and TNT broadcaster saw his son, K.J., a senior guard at North Carolina, dribbling a ball outside in front of his laptop.
“I just thought he was doing a YouTube video or something,” Smith recalled. “He says, ‘I’m on a (live video) call with my middle school and high school.’ He had about 100 kids.”
