Sway, Spike Lee, Foxxhole and more in New Orleans for NBA All-Star Weekend

February 13, 2014

LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and the rest of the NBA’s elite head to the Big Easy in the coming days for the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend.

Joining King James, Melo and the Durantula? A host of SiriusXM talent, including Sway Calloway, Spike Lee and others, to talk to the biggest names in basketball, showbiz and hip-hop.


SiriusXM NBA Radio

Starting Thursday, SiriusXM’s all-NBA channel, SiriusXM NBA Radio, will host daily shows from New Orleans, La. Former NBA players Jerry Stackhouse and Sam Mitchell will be on the scene, in addition to Justin Termine, Sam Mitchell, Joel Meyers and Frank Isola. Spike Lee will also host a live special edition of his program, Best Seat in the House, Saturday at 1 pm ET.

Termine and Mitchell tip off the programming Thursday at noon ET with Off the Dribble, followed by NBA Today at 3 pm ET, hosted by Meyers and Stackhouse.


Shade 45

Friday morning at 8 pm ET (7 pm CT), Sway Calloway will host his morning show, Sway in the Morning, live from the New Orleans French Quarter. Sway will talk with local hip-hop stars and personalities during the show. (And hey – maybe if we’re lucky, Sway will interview an NBA legend. Last time he was on-site at an NBA event, Sway interviewed Allen Iverson at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.)

In addition, on Saturday, Sway will interview players at NBA All-Star practice, and talk at length with Indiana Pacers All-Star center Roy Hibbert as Hibbert participates in an NBA Cares event. Listen on Shade 45.


The Foxxhole
