This is the full – previously unreleased – 15 minute interview/Q&A with Brixton Topcats’ Jimmy Rogers that took place at Space Jam Brixton 2016, which was an event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Space Jam (we previously just released a single segment of Rogers talking about Luol Deng’s work ethic).
It took place at House of Hoops Foot Locker in Brixton and Jimmy was invited as a special guest, taking questions on stage from the host – Magdi Fernandes – as well as from people in the audience. Rogers covered a multitude of things, including the founding of Brixton Topcats, Michael Jordan, Luol Deng, Ronnie Baker, the Ambrosius’, USA vs Europe, advice he would give for aspiring young players, success stories from the club and more.
Sadly, Jimmy Rogers passed away on Monday October 1st 2018, which is why we have dug up this interview from old hard drives to publish. RIP.
