Legendary reporter and columnist, Peter Vecsey.
Our extensive chat covers Peter’s whole career – his candor is second-to-none. We talk about his relationship with Julius Erving, experiences covering Rick Barry, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson and a host of other greats. Peter recalls his friendship with Drazen Petrovic and discusses possibly his greatest exclusive – Latrell Sprewell’s choke-hold on then-coach, P.J. Carlesimo. He recalls his years covering Michael Jordan, gives honest assessments of Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith, plus offers numerous stories he’s never told before. You need to listen to this conversation to fully appreciate it.
@inallairness Why aren't I surprised?!
