Anyone who follows NBA basketball news knows Tim MacMahon. He’s among the world’s best-known basketball reporters.
Dr Noah Charney caught up with him on the last day of his visit to Slovenia in September. He came to Slovenia as he was doing research for a book he’s writing on the Slovenian basketball phenom, Luka Doncic. That a reporter of his renown was in Slovenia was big news. Luka Doncic has become one of the most visible ambassadors for Slovenia, thanks to his status as one of the all-time greatest basketball players—when he’s still just 24 years old.
Based in Dallas, Texas, Tim is a seasoned sports reporter, having begun his career writing for the Dallas Morning News, where he worked from 2003 until 2009. Then he made the move to ESPN, the American sports media empire that is the very pinnacle for sports news.
Tim and Noah talked about what he saw during his first trip to Slovenia and about his time covering basketball, Goran Dragic and Luka Doncic.
