CLPod 039.5: Talking hoops with Dan Bailey, Father John Misty drummer & NBA fan

The CelticsLife mid-week podcast is back, bringing you interviews and important news that just can't wait for the weekly pod.

CelticsLife’s resident Brit, Josh Coyne, connected with professional musician and NBA fanatic Dan Bailey during his world tour with Father John Misty. As a lifelong Los Angeles Lakers fan, Bailey spoke with Josh about the famous rivalry, the Lakers’ development, his thoughts on Boston’s competitive youngsters and his playing days. Both kept control of their fandom for the most part and only a couple of expletives were uttered while they waxed poetic about Lakers-Celtics history, the state of this season's NBA in general, and what life is like for a professional musician with a basketball jones.
