One of my favorite things in the world is basketball. I started playing basketball in seventh grade and it was the only sport I was ever showed any aptitude for, after failed attempts at baseball (which I loved) and soccer (which I didn’t). Like most kids growing up in the 90′s and not living in a NBA city, I followed the Bulls and Michael Jordan and, because I wanted to be fearless like him and he had a knuckleball jumper just like me, Tim Hardaway and the Golden State Warriors. Shortly after I moved to Boston in 2000, I became a fan of the Boston Celtics, a team I’ve been stuck on ever since.
So it was with delight that I was invited onto the CelticsTown podcast. Hosted by Ty Ray and my friend Jay King, they broadcast on CLNS Radio, every Monday night. Mostly they talk Celtics. Sometimes, other things. But it’s always a fun, smart, enjoyable show, and the first time I’ve been on a podcast to talk about, of all things, basketball.
If you didn’t get the chance to listen to it live, you can listen here. While there, you should subscribe to the podcast—it goes straight to iTunes if you let it—so you never miss a future episode.
