After a mini-hiatus over the Christmas/New Year break, the Hoopsfix podcast is back as we sit down with 15 year pro and former England/Great Britain Senior International, Martin Henlan.
The Birmingham-born big man had an impressive basketball career, beginning with West Bromwich Kestrels, before a stand-out 4 years at Virginia Commonwealth University and then returning to the UK for a pro career that saw him finish amongst the most successful players in BBL history, along with spending seasons in Greece and France.
Martin represented Great Britain in three World Student Games and two Olympic qualification competitions and won 27 caps for England, all whilst became an outspoken advocate of players’ rights which resulted in him establishing the Basketball Player’s Association UK.
Since retiring, Henlan has set up his own company, A Tall Order Limited, which deals with media distribution and consultancy, and is a regular commentator for basketball on TV.
In this little over an hour episode, hear from Henlan on:
