Why has basketball been sidelined in the UK for the last 80 years? Chris Pearson, a retired professional player reveals all

In this weeks episode, I am joined by Chris Pearson, who is a basketball agent, retired professional basketball player and founder of The Hoops Anthem campaign. I learn all about Chris’ experiences of basketball in the context of the UK system, discover what role basketball has in shaping and serving communities. This episode really inspired me and I hope you learn as much from Chris as I did.
