JJ Redick Continues To Prove Why He Is The Next Face Of Sports Podcasting

In a phone interview with The Athletic, JJ explains the intentions behind Mind the Game. "It’s meant to be a very free-flowing conversation about the sport and about the game. If you look at it in a very simplistic way, it’s just about basketball." James also spoke about how thrilled he is to be bringing this production to life. "I’m really proud of what we’ve done to innovate in sports media. When I do a project, the only thing I think about is whether me and my friends would watch it. That is definitely the case with ‘Mind the Game.’ Everything doesn’t need to be designed for internet culture and clicks." Guests will also be a regularity on this show too and as of now, there are no sponsors for the show. However, with as big as LeBron and Redick are to the basketball world, it should not be problem for this to blow up without the backing or the explosive rants.
