Ernie Johnson joins the podcast this week. As you’re presumably aware, he hosts Inside the NBA on TNT and is also anchoring coverage for Turner Sports’ and CBS’ NCAA Tournament.
In between the tourney and the NBA playoffs (after which comes his MLB work for TBS), his autobiography, Unscripted, comes out on April 4th. It is available for pre-order on his web site. There will be a book tour hitting New York City, the ESPN carwash in Bristol, Chicago, Dallas, and Atlanta.
On the podcast we discussed:
- Why does he think ratings for the NCAA Tournament are up big this year?
- How does he play “traffic cop” for Shaq and Charles Barkley, who are not always the most careful drivers?
- If he were NBA Commissioner, what would he do to address players resting, especially on national television?
- LaVar Ball
- The book tour.
Hope you enjoy!
