The Chronicles of Kevin Durant

The Chronicles of Kevin Durant

The Athletic’s national NBA writer Michael Lee joins the show to talk NBA, free-agency, and more.


This week we talk about the NBA season that was with The Athletic’s NBA national correspondent Michael Lee. 

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about the politics of Megan Rapinoe and her decision to not sing the National Anthem at the World Cup. We got a ‘Just Stand Up’ Award to a first-time winner, Russell Wilson, for his comments about the nation’s immigration policy after a horrifying photo of a migrant father and daughter dead on the Mexican side of a river was leaked. We got a ‘Just Sit Down’ award for Kevin Keetzman, a Kansas City sports radio show host. All this and more on this week’s show!

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that moves 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 stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories to readers like you.
