As we continue focusing on exemplifying talent of Asian descent in the basketball world, we spoke with Nelson Campana (@Nelcam), social media creative producer with MLSE. Nelson demonstrates what talent and networking can do for you. He’s the classic case of a dude who had a passion and talent, got noticed, and then grinded his way to his position. If you’ve seen any coverage from the Raptors championship run in 2019, you’ve definitely seen his work. We spoke to him about his start with MLSE, covering the championship run, and some of the best arenas across the league.

On today’s episode, we speak with Josh Fan (@Jwafan), NBA skills development coach. In continuing with our Asian Heritage recognition month, we speak with Josh about his time as an NBA skills coach for Jeremy Lin (@jlin7), who we all obviously know. Josh has traveled to multiple NBA cities such as Houston, LA, and Charlotte as well as a year in the CBA to help Jeremy’s game progress. Josh is one of the few Asian skills coaches in the league, and we were fortunate to discuss with him his entry into the league, what he tries to focus on at this point, and some of the most important lessons he’s learned around the league. This conversation gave us real insight into the day to day training regiment that players go through and the work that’s needed for high levels of success.
