On this episode, owner and operator of the basketball analysis site Ball Don’t Stop, Ekam Nagra, visits from Vancouver. Beyond his loyalty to the Grizzlies, Ekam is passionate about the game and the purity of hoop. To start things off we get into the role of the media in sports, and take Gil on the other side of microphone, to examine those who cover the game.
If you’re a follower of Ball Don’t Stop, you know about Ekam’s reverence for Kobe Bryant. For a guy that was a fan first, then an opponent, Gil speaks to the detail of what he witnessed going up close and personal against the Mamba. And of course there are stories. We also get into the technical brilliance of players, including Agent Zero, and their influence on the game as it evolves.
