It's been a good week for the NBA in the UK. The annual game took place at the o2 arena in London as usual, only this year we were treated to stacked rosters, at least one playoff contender and a young team trusting the process.
When the NBA comes to London it's a week long event which is not just about the game, it's about the events surrounding the game and the NBA legends and personalities who fly over and show love. It's an epic occasion all round.
One such personality who I was particularly excited to hear was flying over is Tas Melas. Tas is one of four presenters on 'The Starters' which is a daily show on NBA TV which covers almost everything going on in the league. It's an excellent show which I genuinely watch everyday and appreciate the creativity behind it as much as I do the information shared. Having a YouTube channel in it's very early stages myself, I've been strongly influenced by The Starters and inspired by the journey of the guys involved.
You can imagine my excitement then when Tas Melas responded to my request for an interview and was willing to meet on the morning after the game. I sat on the tube feeling mildly skeptical that he'd show up, but he did, and he's a top bloke! Full interview coming soon, but check out highlights from the interview below...
