Ep. 15: Rick Fuson, Tamika Catchings

This week’s guests: Rick Fuson and Tamika Catchings.

This week on the Vigilant Sports Pacers Podcast, I’m joined by two special guests: Pacers Sports & Entertainment President Rick Fuson and Fever star Tamika Catchings.

The Pacers and the city of Indianapolis would like to host NBA All-Star Weekend, and so Fuson, along with several other city officials, traveled to the 2016 NBA All-Star game across the border in Toronto last month to take notes and see what exactly it would take to do so.

Catchings, meanwhile, has a schedule that nobody could keep track of without a calendar (and maybe even an assistant). She got married, participated in All-Star Weekend, then had USA Basketball Camp, and now is on a book tour as her autobiography hit stores on March 1.
