This week we talk to the best selling author of the new book Three-Ring Circus: Kobe, Shaq, Phil, and the Crazy Years of the Lakers Dynasty, Jeff Pearlman. Pearlman talks about all the big personalities around the team, the tensions, and how he assesses the legacy of Kobe after his death.
We also have Choice Words about Breonna Taylor and Muhammad Ali, and the city that binds them. In addition, we have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards to Lebron James for recent comments pledging solidarity to black women and NBA owners for their hypocritical support of Donald Trump in the wake of the league’s black lives matter branding. All this and more on this week’s show!
