On this episode of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, host Richard Deitsch interviews ESPN NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy. Van Gundy discusses how Marv Albert helped him break into broadcasting, how he prepares for each game, the reporters he reads to stay current, how honest NBA broadcasters can be on air, how often he hears from the league about something he says, his reaction to Howard Stern calling him out, why Chris Paul would make for an excellent broadcaster, what lines he canâ€™t cross because of ESPNâ€™s business interests, how he approaches calling his brother's (Stan Van Gundy) games, Â what his relationship would be with the local media if he returned to coaching, and much more.
