On Episode 152 of the Ballislife "In The Paint Show", hosts Ronnie Flores and Ani Umana welcome on special guest John Lucas III to chop it up about a variety of topics, including his upcoming "Camp Get Right, the JL3 Way" in Southern California, March 18-19.

Lucas talks about the importance of mastering the fundamentals and developing a work ethic at a young age regardless of skill level. Lucas also talks about what separates his camp series in a diluted space and what one can expect to learn and take away from his upcoming camp for middle school players (6th-8th grade).

JL3 talks about carving out a 10-year NBA career after a nondescript high school care at Bellaire (Texas) and offers tips and insight on what it takes to grind out a long pro career as a role player. JL3 also recalls his high school days during a glorious time in University Interscholastic League (UIL) basketball in the early 2000s and some of the future NBA players he played with and went up against.

JL3 also breaks down development and training with players of all skill level, from middle schoolers to NBA players, and some of the keys to success in that aspect of the game.

Ron and Ani also chop it up about the latest FAB 50 rankings and upcoming playoff scenarios, the NBA All-Star Game and a scary situation involving 2024 elite junior Tarik Watson of FAB 50 No. 21 Roselle Catholic (NJ), who collapsed on the court on January 29.
