It’s Legends Week.
Every year, on Arizona Sports, our own Doug & Wolf interview newsmakers around the Valley sports landscape from head coaches to general managers and owners; we call it Newsmakers Week.
This is a twist on that idea, but instead of current newsmakers, we threw it back to some of the biggest names in Valley sports history. From World Series heroes to executives and broadcasters, go down memory lane with guests who joined us all week.
Below is a list of all of those guests who joined Doug & Wolf‘s Legends Week so far this past week, ordered in reverse chronological order.
You can also listen to these clips and other audio on-demand in the Arizona Sports app.
Brandon Webb, former Diamondbacks pitcher
Webb was elite when he was healthy, but injuries derailed his career for good. He reflected on that time and what his wife thought of his MLB aspirations when they were first dating.
Paul Goldschmidt, former Diamondbacks first baseman
Goldschmidt reflected on the different managers he had with the Diamondbacks and why he’s not too concerned with his baseball legacy.
Aeneas Williams, former Cardinals DB
What does legacy mean to Williams? He joined Doug & Wolf to discuss that as his career culminated in a Hall of Fame induction.
Jake Plummer, former ASU and Cardinals quarterback
Plummer, who played for the Cardinals, reflected on his favorite memory while wearing the maroon & gold.
Jeremy Roenick, former Coyotes forward
Roenick reflected on his time in Arizona and what his motivation was as a player.
Bob Brenly, former Diamondbacks manager
Brenly, the manager of the 2001 World Series team, is now a broadcaster for the team on television. But he joined Doug & Wolf and discussed what made the ’01 D-backs special and what he misses about being in the dugout.
Derrick Hall, Diamondbacks CEO
Hall gives an update on the possible resuming of the MLB season and discusses the reports that MLB is submitting a plan to the players association.
Shane Doan, former Coyotes captain
Doan told a story of the time they found out some tough news while on a bus to a playoff game. He also looked back on what it’s like to be a captain, and what it’s like to fight opponents.
Bruce Arians, former Cardinals head coach
Arians, the former Cardinals coach, now has a roster in Tampa Bay that’s the talk of the league. So what has it been like so far to coach Tom Brady?
Jerry Colangelo, the Godfather of Valley sports
Colangelo gives his thoughts on sports making their return amid the coronavirus pandemic and reflects on the successes he’s had in his career.
Mark Grace, former D-backs first baseman
Grace reflects on life, a funny story from his time with the Cubs and what it was like playing in the 2001 World Series.
Danny White, former ASU quarterback
White played for Frank Kush at ASU and Tom Landry in the NFL. He discussed those two coaches’ impact on his life, plus what he’s been up to lately.
Adrian Wilson, former Cardinals safety
Wilson reflected on the 2009 Super Bowl, what he wants to be remembered for and what drove him on gameday.
Kurt Warner, former Cardinals quarterback
Did Warner really consider making a comeback to football? He discussed that, plus whether he sees his career through the Cinderella narrative.
Karlos Dansby, former Cardinals linebacker
Dansby played three stints with the Cardinals and knows a thing or two about defense. So what does he see in new draft pick Isaiah Simmons? Plus, he makes his case for the Hall of Fame.
Dan Majerle, former Suns wing and former GCU head coach
Majerle remembered draft night, when he unexpectedly went to the Suns and was booed by the fans. He went on to have a pretty good career anyway, averaging 11.4 points and 2.9 assists per game as a three-time All-Star and two-time All-Defensive player.
Randy Johnson, former Diamondbacks pitcher
Johnson joined Doug & Wolf and reflected on his lengthy career, one that saw him rack up strikeouts, win a World Series, throw a perfect game and hit a bird with a baseball.
Carson Palmer, former Cardinals quarterback
The first time Palmer spoke on the phone with then-Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, it was to get traded to the desert. But he could hear from the background noise that things were done a little differently in Arizona.
Keith Tkachuk, former Coyotes captain
Tkachuk was once a scoring threat for the Coyotes and led the league in goals, but now he watches from the stands as his two sons play in the NHL.
Tom Chambers, former Suns power forward
A four-time All-Star and two-time All-NBA selection, Chambers averaged 20.6 points per game in his 380 games in a Suns uniform. He joined Doug & Wolf to dish on his time in Phoenix and the league.
Eddie Johnson, former Suns small forward
Johnson is now an analyst on TV for Phoenix Suns broadcasts. But before that, he played in 1,199 NBA games, 222 of which were in Phoenix. The former Sixth Man of the Year talked about his favorite memory in the NBA, among other things.
Luis Gonzalez, former Diamondbacks outfielder
Gonzalez is known for his game-winning hit in the 2001 World Series, but long before his days with the Diamondbacks, he exaggerated the truth a little bit to earn playing time as a college player at South Alabama.
Anquan Boldin, former Cardinals wide receiver
A former AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, Boldin had 1,417 yards his rookie season and kept up elite production for much of his career. As a member of the Cardinals for seven seasons, Boldin was teammates with Larry Fitzgerald and explained why teammates were cautious to bet against the pair of receivers.
Larry Centers, former Cardinals fullback
Centers, who played for the Cardinals from 1990 to 1998, had nearly 9,000 career yards from scrimmage. The three-time Pro Bowler talked about his favorite moments with Arizona and what it was like to be a fullback in the NFL.
