Host Adam McKay brings stories of tragic basketball deaths alive in his show Death at the Wing, and USA Today spoke with the funnyman film director about his love for basketball and the emotions it stirs in him.

Some of the revelations:

At age 52 he still plays at least once a week.

He was an avid reader of SLAM magazine when he was younger, and used to think about being a contributor.

He noticed that today’s stars are staying off drugs and becoming famous like they didn’t use to and he wanted to tell the stories of those that didn’t make it.

He relates telling stories of tragic deaths to true-crime stories and you still have to be careful when dealing with the families of those left behind.
