SportsPro editor at large Eoin Connolly talks to Peter Feigin, president of the Milwaukee Bucks, in the build-up to an unusual new National Basketball Association (NBA) season.

They discuss the challenges of heading back to the Fiserv Forum behind closed doors, including the logistical and production plans behind that return and the financial measures helping teams through a campaign that is set for limited fan attendance. 

Then Feigin describes the experience of an emotional summer of protests against racial inequality – one where the Bucks withdrew from a playoff game after the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin – and explains how his outlook on the social responsibility of sports teams has been influenced by the events of 2020. 

Ahead of the new campaign, the franchise's president talks playing closed doors, logistical plans, financial measures and social responsibility.
