We spoke to Kappa’s Dave Bandell to talk with the new official and exclusive apparel sponsor to the British professional basketball leagues and Great Britain national teams. We discuss the appeal of basketball, the role of Kappa in helping promote the sport, and the look and sale of replica jerseys at clubs and retailers.
We also caught up with Erin McGarrachan, currently sitting out of GB Basketball’s EuroBasket qualifying campaign while recovering from injury, to see how her rehabilitation is progressing and discuss the benefit of a Scottish team entering the WBBL in the future.
Finally, we caught up with Georgia Jones to speak about the mood in the GB camp, the influx of young British talent into the squad and the role of the WBBL in developing women’s basketball. Great Britain Senior Women are currently in a preparation camp in Manchester ahead of their FIBA EuroBasket Women 2017 qualifying games against Albania on Saturday and Montenegro on 24 February.
Thanks to Paul Nilsen for asking questions to Georgia on our behalf.
