Maya Moore Makes History by Walking Away

WNBA superstar Maya Moore joins the show to talk about her big decision to walk away from basketball to fight for social justice.


This week we speak to one of the great basketball players of all time, Maya Moore, talking to us about her unprecedented decision to walk away from hoops to organize around the worst aspects of our criminal justice system.

We also have Choice Words about Colin Kaepernick and the NFL quarterback crisis. And we have Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards for legendary wide receiver Calvin Johnson and NCAA football coach Mike Leach, and more.
