Michael Grady has been around the NBA for over a decade, first as a radio host in Indiana and PA announcer for the Pacers and now as the Nets sideline reporter for the YES Network. But while the Emmy Award-winner has accomplished a lot in his sports broadcast career, his recent work photographing Black Lives Matter protests in and around New York City has been equally fulfilling.
