Episode 14 – J.R. Gamble
Season 2 starts NOW!
As a child this St. Albans native carried the nickname “stats” for his spongelike ability to memorize, calculate and dictate sports statistics at the drop of a dime. He parlayed this fascination with sports into a career as a sports columnist, writing for publications such as Newsday, The Undefeated and a host of radio, print and TV stations around the country. He even partnered with childhood friend Phife Dog from A Tribe Called Quest to produce a radio show called “Fanalyst” prior to the untimely death of the rap legend.
He covered hoops throughout the city in the 90’s, when NY basketball was on fire and ascended the sports writer ranks. Today he’s the Deputy Editor and Senior Writer for theshadowleague.com.
On this episode of Dribble N’ Dimes we rap with sports writer J.R. Gamble.
