Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and WNBA Shock Waves

Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and WNBA Shock Waves

On this week’s episode of the Edge of Sports podcast, Christy Winters-Scott joins the show to talk hoops.


On this week’s episode of Edge of Sports, we speak to commentator and hoops legend Christy Winters Scott about the shock waves that have roiled the worlds of hoop in both the WNBA and NBA. We discuss the Durant trade and the big moves in both the WNBA and NBA as well as why the DMV region continues to produce incredible basketball talent.

We have Choice Words about LeBron breaking Kareem’s all-time scoring record. We also have a Just Stand Up award to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for being an incredible figure of political grace, and a Just Sit Down award to the NFL media for the ways in which they didn’t question NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell at the state of the league press conference.

Thank you for reading The Nation!

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read. It’s just one of many examples of incisive, deeply-reported journalism we publish—journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media. For nearly 160 years, The Nation has spoken truth to power and shone a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug.

In a critical election year as well as a time of media austerity, independent journalism needs your continued support. The best way to do this is with a recurring donation. This month, we are asking readers like you who value truth and democracy to step up and support The Nation with a monthly contribution. We call these monthly donors Sustainers, a small but mighty group of supporters who ensure our team of writers, editors, and fact-checkers have the resources they need to report on breaking news, investigative feature stories that often take weeks or months to report, and much more.

There’s a lot to talk about in the coming months, from the presidential election and Supreme Court battles to the fight for bodily autonomy. We’ll cover all these issues and more, but this is only made possible with support from sustaining donors. Donate today—any amount you can spare each month is appreciated, even just the price of a cup of coffee.

The Nation does not bow to the interests of a corporate owner or advertisers—we answer only to readers like you who make our work possible. Set up a recurring donation today and ensure we can continue to hold the powerful accountable.

Thank you for your generosity.
