Where sports and politics collide, hosted by Nation magazine Sports Editor Dave Zirin


The Singularity of LeBron James

This week, we speak to Yahoo Sports’ national NBA correspondent Michael Lee about what makes LeBron James unique and how he can be stopped (It involves quintuple coverage). We also delve into the Lebron-Jordan debate, and the limits of that discussion. 

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about the scandal-plagued story with the Washington cheerleaders, ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Your Ass Down’ awards, a very special Kaepernick watch, and more!
