Inside Chat: Dropping Dimes With Pete Croatto

Today we are joined by Pete Croatto for an entertaining conversation about his new book From Hang Time to Prime Time: Business, Entertainment and the Birth of the Modern-Day NBA. We also discuss how Marvin Gaye’s national anthem changed the NBA, the backstory behind the Spike Lee/Michael Jordan Nike ads, and why the Utah’s basketball franchise nickname is the Jazz. Plus Dave & Laura reminisce on the old days and attending live sporting events.
