    NBA Talk & The Biz of Sports w/Terrell Thomas

    Get in the Game!


    After a brief hiatus, Branden and Maurice are back in the booth. This time they’re talking with homie and professional peer Terrell Thomas of HipHopSince87.com and These Urban Times. In this episode, he talks about how he got his start in sports writing and how he wants to create more opportunities for guys and girls like him to get in the industry. Sports fans will especially love this one because they talk A LOT of basketball. A LOT!

    2:00 The Beginning: Philly native Terrell talks about how he actually started his writing career in sports and politics before getting into Hip-Hop and getting down with HipHopSince87.com. He also reveals that his mother is the one who got him into sports which sparked his interest.

    6:00 The conversation shifts to why it is still difficult for young and African-American sportswriters to break into the industry and get a real shot. He also shares why he thinks Black athletes play a role in this as well.

    15:00 Is this the craziest NBA Free Agency ever? Is the league actually and truly “balanced” now? Terell shares his thoughts on who won and who lost in NBA Free Agency.

    23:30 Who were the studs and duds in NBA Summer League? Spoiler: Branden is not a fan of RJ Barrett and no one was impressed with Zion Williamson either.

    33:00 This is when we give some way-to-early predictions about the 2019-20 NBA season.

    37:00 We can’t do a sports show without talking about the hometown Atlanta Hawks, so here’s what we think and are expecting for this young team to do this year.

    41:00 Terrell closes out the show speaking on his favorite interviews and his bucket list of people he would love to sit down with.
