On this week’s pod, we speak to 10 year NBA veteran Etan Thomas about his new book "We Matter: Athletes and Activism,” where he speaks to sports figures ranging from Bill Russell to Russell Westbrook. Also, I have choice words about Michael Bennett's departure from Seattle, a Just Stand Up and Just Sit Your Ass Down award for an NBA pioneer on mental health and NFL owners respectively, our weekly Kaepernick watch, and much more.Etan ThomasTwitter: @etanthomas36We Matter: Athletes & ActivismZirin, He’s Been Our Voice: Seattle Says Goodbye to Michael Bennetthttps://www.thenation.com/article/hes-been-our-voice-seattle-says-goodbye-to-michael-bennett/—http://www.edgeofsportspodcast.com/ | http://twitter.com/EdgeOfSportsPod | http://fb.com/edgeofsportspod | email us: edgeofsports@gmail.com | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Eye Examination - Del the Funky Homosapien | It Was A Good Day - Ice Cube | Freestyle on Flex - Black Thought | I shall Proceed - The Roots | One Day - UGK | J-Dawg Feat.
