Well, not really. But here's a clip of Naismith on the radio from 1939. From KU Libraries
Radio Interview, 1939

And a story about it from today's New York Times
Basketball’s Birth, in James Naismith’s Own Spoken Words

Very cool clip. It sounds a little rehearsed and contrived which was typical of the era (compared to the off-the-cuff interviews of today).

Nevertheless, it's an incredible find. I hope (confident that they will) they include it in the rules exhibit when it opens. I don't know how they couldn't.

Sounds like that first game was quite a brawl.

Yeah, they should include it.

Maybe that professor can find video of the game. That would be something. Did Max call that game?

Yes, most certainly Max called the game.
