My friend Brett Dawson made a career choice about this time last season. The former Kentucky beat writer for the Courier-Journal, who was running the Cats Illustrated website for Rivals, decided to quit his job and pursue his dream of covering the NBA.
Brett spent the past year covering Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans for The Advocate, which is based in Baton Rouge but also circulates in New Orleans. I talked to Brett about the differences between covering college and pro basketball, Davis’ injury-riddled season, comparing the NBA to college hoops and what will happen in the NBA playoffs.
Never miss a local story.
