We begin with undefeated WBO Heavyweight Champ, Deontay Wilder. Heâs 34-0 with 33 KOâs. Next is one of the most legendary musicians in the history of the art, Roy Ayers. Ayers speaks of how his career was sparked by the great Lionel Hampton when Ayers was just 5 years old. Mr. Ayers is followed by Julius Erving and Chuck D speaking of the recently deceased Moses Malone. After those legends, I give you a snippet of my interview with another Hall of Famer, Hakeem Olajuwon on how Moses affected him personally as a youngster landing at the University of Houston by way of Nigeria. Next is Bomani Jones and the co-founder of The Starting Five, D. K. Wilson, to talk about Black journalism. We finish up with The Sports Brothers, Branson Wright and Delvis Valentine who speak of the potential for an athlete summit similar to the one headed by Jim Brown in 1967. Rest in power Moses Malone. Weâll miss you Mo
