It’s been over a year since the sad passing of Robert Archibald. We look back on his career and Scottish basketball as a whole with league partners Sky Sports in their 2019 documentary “A Scottish Basketball story”.
Making it Rain: A Scottish Basketball Story tells the story of the sport’s surprisingly deep Scottish roots. Alton Byrd and Bobby Kinzer look back on the fierce rivalry between Edinburgh and Falkirk that helped spark a golden era for the sport in the 1980s. We hear about Robert Archibald’s journey against the odds to become the first Scottish player in NBA history. And Olympian, Kieron Achara, recounts the success of the national team at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
This programme was originally broadcast in May 2019.
