Today, TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott and David Thorpe discuss: Don’t you wish it was just about sports? One NBA powerbroker (Ari Emanuel of Endeavor) cut a deal face to face with Vladimir Putin, another (Joe Ravitch of the Raine Group) is helping Kremlin-connected oligarch Roman Abramovich sell Chelsea F.C. right now.
fantastic info in the pod, as usual. i'm ashamed it takes a criticism to motivate me to sign on (i really enjoy my subscription -- especially when you connect the nba to the larger worlds of business and politics)... but recently the audio levels of coach thorpe have been way below the other two of you and it makes for difficult listening. it's the only thing you could be doing better!
