Wilton sits down with Angel Reyes-Muñiz, the first Mexican basketball player from New York City to play for the Mexican national team. Reyes is a true hooper at heart and a student of the game. But his journey as a player—one that is still evolving—goes beyond the hardwood. The Bronx native became the first person to graduate in his family in September 2022 when he earned an associate degree from Rockland Community College. He credits his mom as his biggest inspiration to keep striving for more and not giving up on his dreams.
As he continues to build on his hoop dreams, Reyes has multiple years of college eligibility remaining. His goal is to land with a program that will position him to one day get a chance to play in the NBA. It helps that he has relationships with former legends like Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki and Kyrie Irving to help him navigate the process. Sit back and get ready to listen as he dives into his hoop dreams, the lessons he learned on the courts in NYC, his relationship with his mom, the international growth among the NBA and some of his previous and recent brand collaborations away from the court.
