TNL ESPORTS GUEST PODCAST 004:
NFL ATHLETE, ESPORTS CO-OWNER RICKY LUMPKIN
TNL Take: The entrance of Pro Sports into eSports isn't getting started - it started a while back. In just the 1st Quarter of 2017, we've already seen over a dozen teams make the investment and the NBA2K ELEAGUE across their 30 teams with several already committed.
Now even more pro and former athletes are moving in.
Our chat ranges from why he was late for our original scheduled recording time, Drake (no seriously) , why the NFL hasn't jumped into eSports like Soccer or the NBA, his favorite games to stream, iRacing as an eSport and can I beat him in Street Fighter (yes). Ricky brings the truth and a ton of laughs.
I hope you enjoy our conversation.
