The Lady Sportswriter, Kimberley Nash, returns to the podcast to discuss Lavar Ball, his recent dustup with Fox Sports 1 (FS1) reporter Kristine Leahy on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, why I found the exchange to be so fascinating (from both sides), and much more. (Run Time: 34 minutes) (more…)
Andrew Bailey has covered the NBA and Breaking News for Bleacher Report for six years. His Twitter account, @AndrewDBailey, is a treasure trove of basketball analytics and statistics that cause spirited debates. It’s not on purpose, he’s just telling you what the numbers tell him. (more…)
It’s never been okay to downplay a woman’s athletic ability but somehow we continue to allow just that to happen. For too long, we’ve allowed ourselves to view women’s athletics as a novelty or, even worse, as us (mainly men) doing them a favor. I’ve played or followed sports for over 20 years and I have to admit, one thing that always remained fuzzy to me was the true definition of Title IX. I knew it had something to do with equality, but I wanted to know more about it.
That’s where today’s guest, Donna Lopiano, comes in. (more…)
When you speak to Schea Cotton, he commands your attention. You can feel the experiences when the now 38-year old, former #1 High School basketball player in the country shares his life experiences.
Such is probably going to be the case when you talk to a man who, at 15, was already better than his older contemporaries at the time. Players such as Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce are just some of the names Schea was lauded over. Greatness on the basketball court was expected, almost a forgone conclusion. But things didn’t work out; and not necessarily for the reasons one might assume.
In today’s podcast I had the privilege of sitting down with Schea Cotton, the high school basketball legend, whose film “Manchild” will be premiering at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 2nd at 9:00 p.m. (PST). (if you’re in the Los Angeles area, click the link for details on how to get tickets https://tickets.lafilmfestival.com/ )
I talk to Schea about his early life (4:00) and why he played basketball. His rise in the high school ranks while playing for Mater Dei and St. John Bosco (10:00). We also talk about what happened that kept him from playing basketball for two years before ending up in Alabama (15:00). We discuss his work today as an AAU coach and what he hopes people take away from the movie (20:00).
