From one Brandon to another, I catch up with Brandon Nix on the B.Nix podcast and talk about round three of the 2017 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

I also talk about the time I sat courtside with Rihanna.

Check out Brandon Nix of the “B.Nix Podcast” chatting with RESPECT Magazine’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson.


On Rihanna’s love for basketball, I told Brandon Nix

“You can sit and have a conversation with her about it and she knows what she is talking about. She’s a sweetheart, she doesn’t forget a face. But the thing about it is she talks just like a fan. She says four letter words just like anybody else she yells ‘Switch on D,’ do this, do that. Rihanna knows the game of basketball, that is one thing I can firmly say about her. She knows the game of basketball and she, I think there are so many parallels on the entertainment side of things, you know, be it sing or dancing and these sports side of things.There is a timing there is a knowledge using instincts to get things done and its entertaining a crowd there are so many parallels and she gets it.”
