ESPN Radio’s Ryen Russillo (SVP & Russillo) is enjoying a terrific stretch at ESPN.
From signing a long-term extension with the network to becoming one of ESPN Radio’s resident NBA experts, Russillo is emerging as a go-to voice.
Now, Russillo has another opportunity to make a name for himself — at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game this Friday in Houston (7 p.m. ET, ESPN, WatchESPN).
Russillo, along with fellow ESPN NBA analyst Bruce Bowen, will participate in the game. The game includes stars from film, television, music, radio, politics and sports.
Russillo has studied his teammates and opponents. In the video above, he offers a few words for his ESPN colleagues who set the over/under on his point total at five.
In the video below, Russillo’s ESPN Radio co-host Scott Van Pelt and ESPN NBA analyst and Basketball Hall Of Fame member Chris Mullin delivered the news that Russillo was chosen to participate in the celebrity game.
