SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Ever since I took this job a little over two years ago, one of my goals was to start a weekly podcast series. I wanted to sit down with each one of the players throughout the season and get their thoughts on a variety on different topics. Something always got in the way of that plan, though.
I want to change that this season.
I'd like this series to become a regular destination for NBA fans around the league, especially for Bulls fans who want to learn about some of their favorite players on the team.
The first guest in this series is one of the most popular players on the team -- and will probably be making lots of appearances on this podcast throughout the year -- Brian Scalabrine.
The White Mamba and I hit on a number of different topics including his time in Italy over the summer, his feelings on the Bulls this season, the steps they must make in order to get past the Miami Heat this year ... and of course, his famous nickname.
Enjoy the first episode. Hopefully there will be many more to come in the future.
Brian Scalabrine joins Nick Friedell to talk about what he did during the lockout and the Bulls forward's outlook for the season ahead.
