Marc Spears Staying With The Undefeated

“In addition to writing for The Undefeated, Spears has contributed multi-media stories to the site as well and anchored an SC Featured segment on Stephon Marbury’s stardom in China.”

ESPN’s vertical covering the intersection of race, sports, and culture, The Undefeated, is keeping its senior NBA writer. ESPN reached a new multi0year deal with Marc Spears earlier this week.

In addition to writing for The Undefeated, Spears has contributed multi-media stories to the site as well and anchored an SC Featured segment on Stephon Marbury’s stardom in China. He has also contributed to E:60, Outside the Lines, and ESPN Radio.

“Marc is one of ESPN’s most valuable reporters, and indispensable to The Undefeated,” Senior Vice President of ESPN, and Editor-in-Chief of The Undefeated, Kevin Merida said in a press release. “The combination of his deep knowledge of the NBA and relationships with players has produced a countless number of original stories. Walking around with him at an NBA arena is like accompanying the mayor of a city.”

Spears came to The Undefeated 2016 from Yahoo Sports where he was a national NBA writer.

“I am thankful to be a part of the ESPN and The Undefeated family,” Spears said. “This is truly a blessing and an amazing storytelling opportunity covering the NBA for both entities that I don’t take lightly.”
