The Sports Rabbi took a deep dive into the Hapoel Tel Aviv’s game at London Lions with a number of special guests that attended the contest at the Wembley Arena in order to get a sense of British basketball and how it can take the next step both in its own country as well as in the continent.

We then welcomed on DJ Deb Grant from Jazz FM and BBC Radio 6 Music as she spoke about living right around the corner from the Lions home arena the Copper Box and how her fandom for the team began. Finally Brian Bosche joined the show and spoke about moving to London from the United States and finding a way to become a part of the British Basketball fabric as he freelances for both the BBL and the London Lions!
