podcast May 5, 2023

share close

What is it about social media phenom VIC BLENDS that makes him the go-to barber for NBA players and rappers? His talent, of course, but also his personality – something that becomes abundantly clear during his conversation with Point Forward co-hosts ANDRE IGUODALA and EVAN TURNER, which was recorded in front of a live audience in Utah during All-Star Weekend. Blends, born Victor Fontanez, talks about growing up in Fayetteville, NC, after J. Cole had put it on the map; getting his start cutting NBA players’ hair with ‘ville native Dennis Smith, Jr.; making the Forbes “30 Under 30” List; why he sees himself as more than a barber; becoming a voice of Gen Z on TikTok; his “Deep Cut” podcast; going to therapy; his conversations with Logic; how he almost died cutting D’Angelo Russell’s hair; and plenty more. 

Plus, before sitting down with Vic, Evan and Andre talk about Steph Curry’s historic 50-point performance in Game 7 of the first round and where it ranks among his best games; the Phoenix Suns’ and Mercury’s decision to move their games to free over-the-air TV and online streaming; and Kevin Garnett’s proposal for an NBA All-Star Weekend rap tournament.
