Ian Thomsen joins me today for a discussion on his career as a sports writer for such great publications as The Boston Globe, The National Sports Daily, the International Herald Tribune, Sports Illustrated, and NBA.com. He is also author of The Soul of Basketball: The Epic Showdown between LeBron, Kobe, Doc, and Dirk That Saved the NBA. We’re talking about many of the players that are responsible for the NBA we see today, stories of his coverage as a reporter and what he had the privilege of seeing and doing over the past three decades. I think he portrays the NBA today and into the future with a view from experience that you are going to appreciate. Join us for the conversation today and I hope you enjoy this most interesting perspective on how several players alone have shaped the sport as we know it today.
