Yes, we’re back in the podcast game!

For The Brooklyn Game’s first-ever podcast, I’m very happy to say that I spent some time chatting with Ian Eagle, YES Network announcer, voice of the Brooklyn Nets, and the only man I know that can make a mundane basketball phrase like “the pull-up pop” sound like a cool breeze on a warm summer day.

In our 25-minute sitdown, Ian and I chatted about the new team, the re-branding, and our terrifying elementary school flashbacks.

We also, near the end, talked about the anticipation surrounding the team on November 1st, and since we had this chat earlier this week, we had no idea that the game was going to be cancelled. So depending on relevance, just shift that part of your brain over to Saturday/whenever the game gets rescheduled for, and our discussion will make more sense.
