Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: Catch us up on what you’ve been up to since graduation.

Baye Moussa Keita: When I graduated, that summer, I worked out with Oklahoma City and I tried out with a couple of NBA teams. After that I went overseas. I’m from Senegal and lived in New York, and I wanted to live overseas. I played my first year in Denmark and I won a national championship there. Second year, I started in Belgium, but things didn’t really go the way I wanted, and I left and went back to Denmark and won another championship. I won two championships and a cup with my Danish team. Currently, I’m working with the NBA with game strategy analysis.
