NBA and Yankee Stadium Talk on This Weekend's Edition of SBR
The NBA Playoffs get under way this weekend so we'll be talking hoops on this weekend's edition of Sports Business Radio. ESPN.com's Henry Abbott founder of TrueHoop.com will join me to hand out our season ending awards as well as preview the playoffs. We'll also discuss the curious decision made by former New York Knicks President and head coach Isiah Thomas to take the head coaching job at Florida International University this week (where the university President welcomed Isiah at the press conference by calling him Coach Thompson"). I'll also be joined on the the show this week by Al Santasiere the Director of Publications for the New York Yankees. Al has co-authored two incredible books about Yankee Stadium. One of the books looks back on the nearly 9 decade history of Yankee Stadium and the other book focuses on the final season at Yankee Stadium. The pictures in the books are incredible and I highly recommend these books for any Yankees fan or baseball historian. Finally we'll recap all of the numbers for last weekend's edition of The Masters. For our Portland show this Sunday from 4pm - 7pm on 95.5FM The Game we'll spend a considerable amount of time talking about the Portland Trail Blazers return to the NBA Playoffs after a 6 year absence. Blazermania is back in the Rose City and we'll chat about how making the playoffs will help the team's bottom line. Talk to you this weekend. "
