It has been a busy week of podcasting — earlier this week, we shared an interview I did with Pete Croatto, who is the author of From Hang Time to Prime Time: Business, Entertainment and the Birth of the Modern-Day NBA, to discuss his book.
As you can imagine, it was quite a fascinating interview that highlighted a lot about the NBA‘s growth over the last few decades — of course, there was plenty of chatter about former Commissioner David Stern, who made sure the league’s players could be heard. And because of Stern, we have been able to hear more from players, both recently and in the past, outside of a television or radio interview on social media.
Pete and I also discussed the upcoming WNBA season — believe it or not, this year marks the 25th anniversary of the league, so make sure to tune in and watch some basketball. I know I will!
