Isaiah "JR" Rider resides in the state of Arizona, and has quickly developed into one of the top basketball coaches and trainers in the state of Arizona. Recently opening his own new workout facility, Rider's club basketball programs is one of the elite young programs in the state.
Before Rider was making his big imprint on the valley, he was one of the top scorers to ever play in the NCAA, while a star performer at UNLV. He also spent close to ten years in the NBA, and was the 5th overall pick in the 1993 NBA Draft. Rider played for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Portland Trailblazers and the Los Angeles Lakers, and was one of the top scorers of the basketball in NBA history - scoring more than 9,000 points (9,405) and averaging an impressive 16.7 points per/game throughout his long career.
J.R. Rider is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, and he has a very humble spirit, which has helped him become the man he is today. He has an excellent story and overcame the odds to become a superstar.
Arizona Preps was extremely proud to interview Rider this week, as Arizona Preps reporter Addissen Stinnett conducted the interview. Enjoy!
