In this mega two part special NBA on Ekalavyas Podcast #6, host Vishnu Ravi Shankar returns with two new guests, and FIBA Agent Jonathan Rego and Team Ekalavyas’ Gopalakrishnan R. In part I, they analyse the final few games of the 2014-15 NBA season, where Golden State Warriors were crowned champions. They also discuss the key talking points, legacies and trades going into the new season. With a 2-4 finals record, what is Lebron James’ legacy? Will Stephen Curry be a transformational point guard in the league? Will Kevin Love stick on with the Cavaliers, or search for “more playing time” elsewhere? These are just some of the many talking points that we discuss, at the conclusion of what has been a supremely exciting NBA 2015 season.
In the second part of this podcast, the three dissect the historic selection of Satnam Singh Bhamara into the NBA. Satnam has become the first Indian national to be drafted into the globe’s most prominent league. He was the 52nd pick for the Dallas Mavericks. How much credit should India take for his achievement? Will this herald the dawn of India Basketball? These questions, and a ton of others will be answered in great detail. Listen in now!
