This week we speak to NBA legend Muggsy Bogues and his co-author Jake Uitti about their new book, Muggsy: My Life from a Kid in the Projects to the Godfather of Small Ball. We talk to Muggsy about his life growing up in Baltimore, his near-death experience as a child, and what it was like to play in the ACC and NBA, dealing with doubters along the way.

We also have Choice Words about the continued detention of basketball superstar Brittney Griner in Russia—a travesty on so many accounts. We also have a Just Stand Up and a Just Sit Down award to, respectively, baseball players forcing ownership to come back to the table during the lockout, and to the vicious and greedy owners, for whom nothing is ever enough. There’s a new Kaepernick Watch, too. All this and more on this week’s show!
