The Other Way: the Voice on the (Cutting Room) Floor
It’s been relatively quiet around here this summer, some of that owing to a lack of any meaningful Pacer activity since the flurry of signings in July, some of that owing to real life intruding on … well, pretty much everything. Still lacking for time and content, I was able to dust off something that was done way back in January.
Matt Moore and Rob Mahoney had asked me to do an audio piece about the financial side of the NBA for a money-themed edition of “Voice on the Floor.” That particular edition never made it out for public consumption, so the audio has been sitting on my computer (actually, two different ones) for about 7 months, collecting dust.
This morning, I started playing around with it, and added a video aspect to it. It’s here for your viewing pleasure.
As I said, this was written back in January. There are things we know now, that we didn’t know then, but while some specific might change if I were to write it today, the sentiment would not.
Note: Most of the ABA footage taken from a YouTube series called History of the ABA (with 6 parts). It is apparently from an HBO Series called “Long Shots: The Life and Times of the American Basketball Association”
