“Free is a world-class creative, and he understands the culture of basketball and all of its lifestyle elements,” said Glenn Chin, senior director of marketing at Niantic. “I think fans are going to really dig this content series, seeing NBA players in candid conversations sharing insights they’ve never shared publicly before.” 

“It was a blast producing ‘Where I’m From’ with Glenn and the NBA All-World team at Niantic,” said Set Free Richardson, producer of the series. “We share a love for basketball, music, fashion and culture. So when they tapped me to sit down with some of the biggest NBA players of today to get their stories in a fresh light, it felt like a natural evolution of the stories I’ve produced before dating back to my And1 Mixtape days.”
