The video game Industry converged on Los Angeles, California for E3 and IGN eSports Today on SiriusXM Bleacher Report Radio was there talking to the biggest names including NBA Hall of Famer (and Street Fighter enthusiast) Bill Walton who talked with our own Kevin Knocke about the spectacle that is E3. We’re still catching our breath! In addition to Walton we met former NBAer/hunk, Rick Fox, Xavier Woods from WWE’s New Day (and who will be competing at Money In the Bank on Sunday) and Kristian Segerstrale of Super Evil Megacorp as guests. Not to mention all of the Virtual Reality games we tested out with Oculus.

Rick Fox meanwhile talked with us about the evolution of gamers into athletes and how he got into gaming to begin with:
