Dr. John Carlos

5/15/2017
More
The 1968 Olympics are known today as one of the most overtly political sporting events in history. This is in part due to the actions of Dr. John Carlos. His Black Power salute was at once a gesture of defiance, frustration and solidarity. The silver-medal winner sits down with The Rematch’s Etan Thomas to talk activism, fake news and how he truly believes that his moment on the Olympic podium was his reason for living.

Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf

5/13/2017
More
Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was known as a sharpshooter during his NBA career. His accuracy from behind both the free throw and three-point lines was legendary. But his career was suddenly derailed when his refusal to stand for the national anthem became headline news. Many fans viewed his form of protest as anti-American — Abdul Rauf was fined and suspended, and received arson and death threats. In the wake of a similar protest staged last season by NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Abdul-Rauf...

Bill Laimbeer

More
To call Bill Laimbeer polarizing would be an understatement. While playing for the Detroit Pistons in the 1980s and ’90s, Laimbeer was known as an enforcer — a player who was willing to go the extra mile for victory, even if it sometimes meant crossing the line of dirty play. And while some fans loved his tactics, there were others who seemed barely able to stand the mere mention of his name. On this episode of The Rematch, the NBA veteran turned WNBA coach shares his perspective on team...

Kenny Anderson

More
New York playground legend Kenny Anderson was the definition of basketball prodigy — college scouts began recruiting him when he was in the sixth grade. Drafted by the New Jersey Nets in 1991 when he was only 20, his talent shone on the court, but he struggled personally with the trappings of being young, rich and famous. Now, 12 years after his career came to a close, Anderson joins the The Rematch to share his story — a cautionary tale for young athletes who experience sudden success.

More
Chamique Holdsclaw is basketball royalty, but uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. The three-time NCAA champion was selected first in the 1999 WNBA draft, but within a few years her off-court problems began to overshadow her play. In 2004, Holdsclaw made headlines when she announced that she was battling depression. Eight years later, she hit rock bottom after an arrest following an altercation in which she smashed a car window and fired a handgun. On this episode of The Rematch,...

Keyon Dooling

More
In 2012 Keyon Dooling lost everything. The 11-year NBA veteran had just re-signed with the Boston Celtics when a chance encounter with a stranger suddenly sent his world spiraling out of control. In a matter of a few weeks the man with a reputation for exemplary behavior both on and off the court — a model for younger players entering the league — abruptly quit basketball and checked himself into a psychiatric hospital. It was there that he was forced to confront childhood memories he had...

Now that the dust has settled on the well-publicized altercation he had in February with security at Madison Square Garden, the 19-year NBA veteran addresses the aftermath of the incident, his relationship with the Knicks and his reputation as a tough guy both on and off the court.
