Sole By The Pound: Sonny Vaccaro on NCAA Sham Amatuerism
Today we speak to the most influential person in basketball who never laced up sneakers or coached on a sideline: former Nike executive Sonny Vaccaro – the guy who connected sneaker money to so-called amateur hoops. He is also is the person who has become perhaps the most important spokesperson against the injustices the NCAA. I also have some "choice words" about an event I moderated last week with San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and Dr. Cornel West in front of 350 San Antonio high school students and most of the Spurs team. We also have our "Just Stand Up" award and a new segment we are titling Kaepernick Watch!
