PRESS RELEASE — February 19, 2019
NEW YORK, NY — February 14, 2019 — The Players’ Tribune (TPT) has teamed up with lifelong friends, Darius Miles and Quentin Richardson for brutally honest and totally unguarded conversations in their eleven-episode podcast series, Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson & Darius Miles. Named for the on-court celebration they made wildly popular, this unfiltered, hilarious and surprising podcast is different than anything you’ve ever listened to before.
“After all the interest in both Darius’ and Quentin’s previous The Players’ Tribune articles, videos and podcasts that gave fans incredible insight into the pair’s unique relationship, we’re excited to bring these two-of-a-kind personalities together again,” said Raphael Poplock, Executive Vice President of Partnerships and Business Development at The Players’ Tribune. “The podcast highlights two key factors that we value in all of our content – authenticity and going beyond the court to discuss topics important to our athletes today.”
The bona fide truth-tellers, Miles and Richardson will be joined by special guests, including Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, Baron Davis, Wilson Chandler and many more, to candidly discuss everything from current events to untold stories from the golden era of sports and culture – the 90s.
