Contact either a local college Athletic director or an NBA team and inquire if they have an intern program you can take part in or see if you can meet with the radio play by play person for the team u like.Also contact your local television station and ask to meet with the sports anchor and ask for tips to get you where you want to be.Also Google sports journalism college programs and make a list of schools that place their graduates in careers u want...Best of luck and stay positive blessings Chip

Make sure you are in a media outlet that broadcasts your views on the NBA to an audience. Chip Heard
