The Woj Pod - March 16, 2016

Michele Roberts, the National Basketball Players Association Executive Director, joins Adrian Wojnarowski on The Vertical Podcast with Woj. Roberts discusses her role leading the Players Association in talks with the NBA on a new collective bargaining agreement, the impact of superstars Chris Paul and LeBron James on the NBPA executive committee and the economic value of the franchise league star and the rebuilding of the union after the corrupt tenure of Billy Hunter. Roberts poignantly details her own personal journey, from poverty in the Bronx to isolation at a prestigious prep school to eventually becoming a relentless public defender in Washington D.C., and renowned trial lawyer.
