Draymond Green On What Podcasting Has Taught Him About Interviewing

“The one comparison I came up with is just because you are a good interview doesn’t mean you will be a great interviewer.”

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green recently made news when by signing on as an analyst with Turner Sports while he is still an active player in the NBA. The 10-year veteran is currently rehabbing from a back injury but when he isn’t on the court, he hosts his own podcast, The Draymond Green Show, for The Volume.

Green was recently a guest on The Old Man and the Three with JJ Redick and Tommy Alter podcast. During the conversation, Green mentioned that one of the toughest challenges in hosting a weekly podcast has been scheduling.

“Scheduling I found is the toughest thing because our schedule is strenuous and you become accustomed to the way things work,” said Green. “We have the crazy schedule and everyone works around that to make things work outside of that. Now, you are the one making it work outside of that.”

While Green enjoys doing TV, he feels that podcasting allows him to get his point across much easier because he doesn’t have to worry about condensing his answers into a specific time frame.

“One of the things I have learned in doing TV is it is so different from podcasting,” explaied Green. “Podcasting, you can go on-and-on with your answer and there’s no time limit and it’s fine. On TV, the producer says you got 20 seconds left, you got 10 seconds left. As much as I love and enjoy that side of things, I am very long-winded.”

As both a player and podcast host, Green has learned that as he prepares to interview a guest, he has to look at such conversations from a different perspective. Just because he can be a great interview for the media, it doesn’t necessarily make him a great interviewer:

“I’m a very curious person. I’ll ask you a million questions,” Green said. “You will probably get sick of me, but I’m going to ask the question until I get the answer. One thing that I have done is watch a bunch of different interviews and not watch it from my perspective, which is the guy doing the interview as a player. I have to watch the interview from the perspective of the person who is conducting the interview.

“The one comparison I came up with is just because you are a good interview doesn’t mean you will be a great interviewer. It’s very similar to just because you are a great basketball player doesn’t mean you are going to be a great coach. That right there alone made me dive deeper into it and want to get good at that because I realize I’m not that good at hosting an interview and I’m trying to get good at it.”

Green is one of the most entertaining players in the NBA for his personality and has done great work with Turner Sports whenever he has been a guest analyst. It can’t be easy to balance a playing career with being in the media, as well. However, with his injury rehab, it allows him to work his best while also continuing to improve on what should be a good second career for him when his playing days are over.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
