    Celebrating Black History Month with Anthony Rowe & Ashley Hamilton

    Celebrating Black History Month with Anthony Rowe & Ashley Hamilton

    Welcome to another exciting edition of The BBL Show, with a focus on Plymouth, as we feature two BBL former Plymouth Raiders. First, BBL star and current commentator, Anthony Rowe; and New Talisman and Great Britain National Team star, Ashley Hamilton.

    Anthony’s hometown is Plymouth, and he started his career as a Plymouth Raider before signing with the Leicester Riders. Given all of Anthony’s success and awards during his playing days, you would think that all he did was play basketball. That clearly is not the case. Tune in for a game that showcases Anthony’s movie knowledge…especially those in the basketball genre. There is never a dull moment on The BBL Show!

    Ashley is the 2018 Trophy Final MVP. His heralded career has taken him to Spain and the USA, but his heart is always with the UK. Ashley talks about his recent signing to Plymouth and his excitement for the new era this team is embarking on.

    In this episode we proudly celebrate Black History Month, honour the Black Lives Matter movement, and feature an exclusive statement from the League reinforcing and its commitment to take actions that support unity and inclusion.

    We are always keen to hear from you the fans. Reach out to us on all forms of BBL socials using the hashtag #thebblshow. Let us know who won the battle of movie characters game by chiming in on who you most want to take the last shot in a BBL Final.

    World Mental Health Day Awareness with Kofi Joseph & MBE Kieron Achara

    World Mental Health Day Awareness with Kofi Joseph & MBE Kieron Achara

    The excitement continues to build for The BBL Show as the season opener draws nearer!

    Episode 5 is jam packed as we start the show with a special surprise! Kipper Nichols joins in a short cameo to face off with Jay. Kipper played for the University of Illinois (USA), and he is excited to start his rookie season as a Sheffield Shark.

    In this episode, we recognize World Mental Health Day as we are joined by former Worcester Wolves and recent Cup Champion Kofi Joseph. This year’s theme for World Mental Health Day is “Mental Health For All,” which takes a laser focus on the unprecedented impact that the COVID-19 global health emergency is having on our individual and collective mental health.

    Kofi opens up about the challenges he has overcome with his mental health over the years, and he dives deep into the concept of Imposter Syndrome. Imposter Syndrome is a false yet polarizing belief that one’s success is fraudulent or undeserved. Kofi is not alone in this experience…. but we must say, Kofi is not an imposter; he is the real deal all day!!!. 

    We finish the show with recently retired Great Britain National Kieran Achara as he was just named MBE. An amazing accomplishment to top off his great career as a beloved member of the Glasgow Rocks. Jay and Drew close The BBL Show congratulating Kieran on a great run!

    BBL's All Time Starting 5 with Mike Tuck

    BBL's All Time Starting 5 with Mike Tuck

    It seems fitting that the 4th Episode of The BBL Show features 4 X time Champion for the Braun Sharks Mike Tuck.

    As Mike gears up for his 12th season with the Sharks, he takes some time off the court to talk basketball with Jay and Drew…while on the court he still shows the rookies who’s the captain.

    This 2016 Playoff Final MVP hails from Toronto, Canada, but Sheffield also feels like home for Mike. He loves his community and has much respect for his long-time head coach Atiba Lyon.

    Mike is also an NBA analyst for Sky Sports which explains why he felt right at home on The BBL show. Listen as Mike shares his reflections on his career, and the league. And of course, we could not pass on the chance to get his input in creating our BBL All Time starting 5 using players from 2005-present.

    We want to hear from you! Use the hashtag #TheBBLShow to choose who drafted the strongest team. (Our bet is on Drew!)

    Andy Thomson Reflects On His 14-Year Pro Career

    The BBL Show thanks all the fans for tuning into Episode #1. The success of our program is a reflection of your love for the BBL…the clubs, the players, the coaches, the game. The excitement continues in Episode #2. Let’s jump in!

    As the BBL gears up for its current season, the Leicester Riders will be without their beloved captain and BBL great, Andy Thomson. Andy is a champion; one of the best to play the game. And while he may have hung up his playing jersey, the BBL is still in his DNA and Leicestershire will be a town he still calls home.

    In this episode, Jay and Drew chat it up with Andy and discuss his reflections on the game, his career, his predictions for the coming season, and his next chapter. (Hint: Retirement for Andy will not be a slowdown.)
