In Saturday’s episode, Fox plays night golf with Los Angeles Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell, the second overall pick of the 2015 NBA Draft, and goes behind-the-scenes with the cast of Cirque du Soliel “Zarkana” as he tries his hand at juggling at the ARIA Resort & Casino.

The episode will also feature a conversation with former NBA All-Star Baron Davis regarding The Drew League documentary, and a basketball workout with actor and comedian Donald Faison and celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak.

Sunday night’s episode will give viewers an inside look at Samsung NBA Summer League 2015 – from the opening night party and ping-pong tournament, to the art exhibit by former Slam Dunk champion turned artist Desmond Mason. The episode will also feature a visit with NBA Champion head coach Steve Kerr and Inside the NBA’s Charles Barkley on the golf course at Lake Tahoe, a one-on-one interview with Ed Helms, star of the upcoming cult classic remake Vacation, a visit to a comedy show featuring Dane Cook, Marc Maron and The Sklar Bros, and a sound check with Grammy Award-winning recording artist and reggae legend Ziggy Marley.
