Episode No. 23: Sekou Smith, NBA.Com Hang Time Blog


Sekou Smith is one of the masterful minds behind the Hang Time Blog over at NBA.com. I caught up with him a few weeks ago, and we discussed all manner of hoops topics: the life of a beat writer (Smith covered the Pacers and the Hawks before working at NBA.com), the world of digital journalism (while covering the Hawks, Smith was instrumental in starting up the Hawks Blog for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution ), the life and career of Ron Artest (including a humorous story from early-morning Los Angeles a few years ago), fan bases that bloggers are always aware of (you don’t want to see a Jazz-Heat NBA Finals), 2012 NBA predictions, and Russell Westbrook. Plus, this guy makes a cameo:

If you’d like to see Sekou at a Media Training Seminar (YouTube goodies are always fun), here’s that clip:

The Hang Time blog is one of the better parts of the NBA-loving Internet, so learn to love and embrace it.

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
