Iconversation is the name of the interview segment on “A Little R&R on Sports,” our weekend nationally syndicated sports entertainment show. Of course, we thought it was a clever and unique word blend name that would get listeners’ attention and set us apart. We suppose it has done that, but the best thing it did was to inspire much more substance in the segment than we ever imagined.
Initially and probably like most of you, within our own perceptions, we fell right into the Sports Center definition of icons, which essentially is exclusive to sports legends and tremendously high profile sports personalities. So, in our first few months we’ve had Iconversations with: NY Knicks great Alan Houston, Sports super agent David Falk, WNBA star Tamika Catchings, Detroit Tigers Pres./GM Dave Dombrowski, NBA Hall of Famer Mitch Richmond, former NBA player and coach Lionel Hollins and perhaps you’ve heard of Julius “Dr. J.” Erving.
