On this week’s episode of Edge of Sports, we speak to 14-year NBA veteran and basketball analyst Kendrick Perkins about his new book, The Education of Kendrick Perkins, cowritten with Seth Rogoff. We talk about Beaumont, his upbringing, and some NBA basketball. We also speak about Tony Dungy and his history of bigotry covered in “kindness.”

We have a Just Stand Up award for Cyd Ziegler, who uncovered Tony Dungy’s speech at the March For Life protest in D.C., and we have a Just Sit Down award for the right-wing trolls who are attacking anyone who dares tell the truth about Dungy’s bigotry.
