S2E70: A Life After the NBA and WNBA

S2E70: A Life After the NBA and WNBA

An NBA player might treat a travel with a grain of salt—James Harden's step-back three or Lebron James' eight-step travel—but do not be surprised if their antics ignite a full-out riot in other countries. Two American basketball stars, former Charlotte Hornets power forward Herman "J.R. Reid" and former Phoenix Mercury point guard Cappie Marie Pondexter, learned that the hard way during their stints around the world. They reminisce about their careers in the NBA and WNBA, highlighting how the game's aspects have changed over the years—marketing, rappers, and style-and the multitude of issues it faces today, including equal pay. Their travels have landed them here in Malaysia as part of the U.S. Embassy's Sports Diplomacy program to connect cultures through the universality of basketball.
