Ryan Ruocco Discusses Early NBA Impressions, Dream Events, Nerdy Broadcast Nuggets

ESPN NBA broadcaster Ryan Ruocco, who also does Nets and Yankees work for YES Network, joins the podcast this week! We discussed:

  • The improved Eastern conference, and how he’d stack up the Celtics, Raptors, Bucks, Sixers, and Pacers
  • Can anyone beat the Warriors? How does he see the Lakers gelling?
  • The difference in communication with producers on baseball vs. basketball, keeping his eye on the ball and off the ball in basketball, and how to listen to producers and still watch and analyze the action all at once.
  • Breaking into the business at a very comparatively young age.
  • The most significant games he’s ever called, and the events he’d love to one day be a part of.
