The NBA has made ambitious inroads in India over the last few years, from the elite level like the NBA India Academy to the grassroots like the Reliance Jr. NBA programme. To discuss this, NBA India’s Managing Director Yannick Colaco joined Hoopdarshan in Episode 55, where we also spoke about Kevin Durant’s recent India trip, NBA’s broadcasting and social media growth in India, and future development programmes in the horizon.
Listen to the latest episode where hosts Kaushik Lakshman and Karan Madhok also preview India at FIBA World Cup qualifiers, Amjyot Singh’s foray into the NBA G-League, and Satnam Singh returning to India for the UBA League. We finish with our thoughts from the first month of the NBA, including some Porzingis-worship, Kuzma vs. Lonzo, Celtics dominance, and more.
Hoopdarshan is the truest voice of Indian basketball, and since we’re such hopeless fans of the game, it will become the voice of everything basketball related we love, from the NBA to international hoops, too. On every episode of Hoopdarshan, we will be inviting a special guest to interview or chat to about a variety of topics. With expert insight from some of the brightest and most-involved people in the world of Indian basketball, we hope to bring this conversation to a many more interested fans, players, and followers of the game.
