During the World Basketball Festival I had the opportunity to be a part of a group of journalists and bloggers that interviewed Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul. It was my first time interviewing an athlete of their nature and it was an eye opening experience. It gave me a new found respect for how athletes are perceived by journalists and in return how the athletes see the journalists. Over the course of the weekend I was able to take in many interviews the players of Team USA gave and I can’t tell you how many times I heard the exact same questions. I really feel for those guys. So when I got the chance to ask my questions, I made sure they were original and what I hoped to be thought provoking. I would have loved to get a one on one opportunity with one of them to really break down their footwear and their expectations of their footwear but the time wasn’t right as their schedules were too full of practice and other obligations. I will get an interview with one of them in due time though, I can feel it!
So sit back and take in the podcast and be on the lookout for my questions!
