This past week David Wilson posted a great interview with Dave Zirin on The Starting Five. Some of the topics they cover during their interview include the influence that former Bush administration and conservative political consultant Matthew Dowd had on David Stern and the NBA, some of the themes that run through Dave’s book What’s My Name Fool, modern athletes inability to take political or social stances through the media, some of this shifts sports journalism has gone through and Scoop Jackson’s belief that a young black child has a better chance of becoming an NBA player than he or she does a sports journalist.
