Podcast Recap

Ryan McKee takes a break from talking about NBA gambling for one episode to talk about the most memorable appearances by basketball players on late-night talk shows with Vice President of CBS Late Night Programming Nick Bernstein and Late Late Show Director of Digital Adam Abramson. The three of them tell their favorite stories about interactions they’ve had with NBA players while working in television, including Kobe Bryant, Steph Curry, Shaquille O’Neal, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Steve Nash, Chris Bosh, and many more.
