Allen Iverson Speaks On Meeting Michael Jordan And Knowing The Notorious B.I.G. (Video)

Wow. A.I. knew Biggie like that. Got to think about that music project he was determined to drop at risk of torpedoing his pro ball career back in the day. Birds of a feather and such; wondering if he got a push, nod (or unh!) from Biggie if that rap career would have taken off.

(Okay, done thinking… NO WAY anybody gives up multiple MILLIONS for playing ball under contract for a ‘chance’ to make ‘some money’ in the rap game. NBA ‘bankshots’ paid WAY more than the ‘bank’ A.I. would have gotten as a rapper.

NBA legend Allen Iverson sits down with Complex’s Speedy Morman to drop gems on everything from his relationship with The Notorious B.I.G., to his conversation the first time he met Michael Jordan, to his iconic shooting sleeve, most memorable Kobe Bryant moment, opinion on the state of the NBA and more.

Jim Acosta Speaks On His Confrontation With President Trump (Video)

Remember when the question kept coming up during Campaign 2016, “Does Donald Trump have the TEMPERAMENT to be President of the United States?” That part.

Answer… NO, he does not.

Even if he thinks reporters are asking unfair or disrespect questions, this is NOT how the leader of the free world should respond. Point. Blank. Period. That said, the reporters, Jim Acosta included, were just doing their jobs. Not as the ‘enemy’ but they are allies; necessary in keeping us informed about what The President and other officials are doing in our name. But don’t you worry about The President attacking members of the press. They can take care of themselves, especially on CNN.

Good discussion on race relations. And Jane Elliott is the perfect one for it.

The tough topic of race relations between women is brought to the Red Table with famed diversity educator Jane Elliott.

Candidate Stacey Abrams Speaks On Her Historic Campaign To Become Governor Of Georgia (Video)

If you have done so already, thank you. But now, and in the future, I gotta keep screaming, “VOTE DAMMIT!” Because it is so important. So beyond the “your ancestors fought and died for the rights you enjoy and have a duty to maintain and fight for” rhetoric. Get in that booth and get into true governance of these United States if you are a citizen. Nothing wrong with ‘making America great’ but if you don’t VOTE then the how, who, and what of that will be determined by those who do and who they elect. Point. Blank. Period.

That said, here’s a lady who wants every Georgia voter to check her box at the polls…

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams discusses her passion for criminal justice reform and her effort to get more people of color registered to vote.

Headkrack talks Radio,TV, & The Nature of Show Business on Odell’s Roundtable

If you are an intricate part of a top rated morning show that is syndicated all over the US. Someone would think that it was something you were a natural at. Then couple that with being on a top rated TV show that airs five times a week. Most people would think that it just all came together nicely.  Well Headkrack is someone who is on a top rated morning show (The Rickey Smiley Morning Show), on TV (Dish Nation) five times a week and it didnt just fall in his lap.  He joined ArtbyOdell on Odell’s Roundtable to discuss his journey and what it took to get here.  He is not finished and is not someone who is resting on what he has already accomplished.  He is a talented emcee and is making a name for himself in all forms of media.  In this interview he gives detailed events of how he got on the airwaves in Dallas without any prior radio knowledge.  He stated that growing up in the Bronx made him a hustler and he never lost that mentality.  Check out the interview and let Headkrack & Odell know what you think about it!

Journalist Bob Woodward Speaks President Trump’s Relationship With The Media And His Comments On Recent Tragedies (Video)

When it comes to having a seat at the table in political discussions, Bob Woodard’s place is saved permanently (see “Watergate,” because we would not have seen it, or President Nixon resigning because of it, without his reporting)! Maybe he is just echoing what is already constantly said about President Trump, but I will ALWAYS lean in when this guy is speaking on something. Perspectives like his are NEEDED in our world today.
