Hoopdarshan Episode 2 - Indians and the NBA with Akshay Manwani

On the second episode of Hoopdarshan - the first-ever Indian basketball podcast - hosts Kaushik Lakshman and Karan Madhok oversee the end of the NBA regular season in style, with Madhok's NBA.com/India co-blogger and best-selling author Akshay Manwani joining in for the fun. Manwani and the Hoopdarshan crew speak about Sim Bhullar's big desi breakthrough, discuss this golden era for NBA fans in India, settle debates like the season's MVP, potential title-contenders, and more.

Akshay Manwani's writings on popular Indian culture and on sports have appeared in The Caravan, Man’s World, Mumbai Mirror, Business Standard, NBA.com/India and AOL India. Akshay also worked for the BCCI and has covered the ICC CWC 2011, the Indian Premier League (2011 and 2012) and the Champions League T20 (2010, 2011 and 2012). His first work of non-fiction, a biography of yesteryear poet-lyricist, Sahir Ludhianvi, was published by HarperCollins in December 2013. You can follow him on Twitter: @AkshayManwani.

Hoopdarshan aims to be the true voice of Indian basketball, and since we're such hopeless fans of the game, it will become the voice of everything basketball related we love, from the NBA to international hoops, too. On every episode of Hoopdarshan, we will be inviting a special guest to interview or chat to about a variety of topics. With expert insight from some of the brightest and most-involved people in the world of Indian basketball, we hope to bring this conversation to a many more interested fans, players, and followers of the game.
