This week on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, we welcome NBA insider, digital guru and all-around dope New Yorker CountOnVic! Victoria talks about growing up in Israel, both the loveliness of life by the sea, and the fright of terrorism on a daily basis, speaking four languages and playing tennis and basketball in her youth, moving to New York City at the age of 11 when her mother took a job working to cure cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and learning American English as well as the subway system right before attending bar mitzvahs. Vic discusses why she gave up her tennis ambitions, visiting Harvard and MIT knowing she wouldn't attend school there, her dalliance with the fashion world, how she fell in love with basketball, and what appealed to her about Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers. We get into how Vic decided with no resume or connections to dive into the sports world, the value of in-real-life connections, her twitter popularity, giving Kobe binge-watching recommendations, her summer of 2017 watching Hoodie Melo-led runs in his private gym, her work with Franchise, the difference between secrets and exclusives, sharing an Uber with Kris Humphries, the people she admires most in NBA media, Kobe's Oscar, taking wine baths a la Amare Stoudemire, who she roots for when the Lakers aren't playing, and much more!
