HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Kobe Bryant‘s back, finally and officially. The Indiana Pacers have drawn first blood in this season’s renewal of their rivalry with the Miami Heat. Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder are on a mission. And Hall of Famer Reggie Miller and the NBA’s former Dean of Discipline, Stu Jackson, make their debut.
You get all that and more on Episode 141 of the Hang Time Podcast featuring Brad Graham, the author and designer of the The Backpack Baller: The Fantastical Basketball Voyage of Kevin Durant.
According to Graham’s Kickstarter page the book “will be a 250 page magnum opus taking a forensic and satellite view of K.D’s on-court conquests as well as his off-court challenges. The book will explore his devotion, brilliance and cultural standing, and much like the player on which it’s based, The Backpack Baller is non-traditional.”
We also introduce Miller and Jackson as the stars of our new segment, “Are You Kidding Me?” The TNT analyst and Hall of Famer squares off against the new NBA TV analyst and former NBA executive crossfire-style in our new debate segment named after Miller’s signature phrase.
