Edge of Sports NBA Season Preview

This week we forecast the NBA season with the one and only Michael Lee. Also we have choice words about the University of Maryland and elite football player Jordan McNair. I also have a historic just stand up and just sit down award, some words about Colin Kaepernick and WEB Du Bois and more.

We also have some ‘Choice Words’ about the University of Maryland and elite football player Jordan McNair, a ‘Just Stand Up’ award to John Carlos and Tommie Smith on the 50th anniversary of their legendary Olympic protest as well as a ‘Just Sit Down’ award to broadcaster Brent Musberger. We also got Kaepernick Watch, and a brand new segment we are starting on the podcast!
