Tal Brody, Israel's Basketball Star

AIR DATE: February 24, 2011

Tal Brody played basketball for the University of Illinois and was the 12th pick in the 1965 NBA Draft, but it was in Israel that he really made his mark. He played in 81 European Cup games and took his team to the finals. The man who was the "Michael Jordan of Israel" joins us to talk about playing pro ball in Israel as an American, the political implications of the 1977 European Cup final, and how he gets Israeli and Palestinian kids to train together on the court.
