Video: British Basketball Mini-Documentary

A few weeks ago I was asked to be interviewed for a final year media student’s documentary project. Pavlos Georgiou, a big basketball fan originally from Cyprus, chose to look at the state of British basketball. Interviewing the likes of John Amaechi, Greg Tanner and myself, I think it makes for interesting viewing-definitely worth a look, even if it’s just to check out my smooth lefty jumper!

What do you think of it?

No mention of clubs in the video? Not sure he quite captured the British basketball landscape.

Some good points although some mistaken ones on the video but impressive in terms of the enthusiasm and commitment displayed.
However can you please amend the title to British Men’s Basketball?
Women have been totally ignored in the video which is sad because in last summer’s competitions the GB Women did better than the GB men – and that’s on significantly less money – and on the club front it is a women’s club which holds most of the records for achievement in Basketball.

Be cool. Critical is fine, but if you're rude, we'll delete your stuff.
