Atrocious sales numbers which continue to trend downward, due to a tarnished brand and the strength of competition on the market, bring into question what kind of future – if any – the company will have with basketball. Bryan Wiedey and Rich Grisham ponder that, how EA has found themselves in this situation, and alternative ideas for utilizing the NBA license.

For those who’d prefer to listen in podcast form, the audio is available on Hit The Pass Radio which can be found on iTunes, with the Stitcher app on Android, or with Pocket Casts on iOS, Android, and Windows.
