    In a business-first conversation in New York City with Point Forward hosts ANDRE IGUODALA and EVAN TURNER, National Basketball Players Association Executive Director TAMIKA TREMAGLIO discusses the ongoing Collective Bargaining negotiations in real time.

But really, this captivating episode is about the players, their relationship with NBA Governors, and the woman who represents the players. Tremaglio shares deeply personal thoughts on her upbringing, the sacrifices she and her family have made as she climbed the professional ladder and why she doesn’t expect a work stoppage in the NBA anytime soon.

Jordan’s recent red carpet beef, it’s time to hear from the first pro fighter in Point Forward guest history. And, needless to say, Jamahal brings the goods, dropping gems about how long he’s been knocking folks out (spoiler: longer than you can imagine!), why ultimate fighting was a better career path than basketball, boxing or football for him and what he wants to accomplish in life when his reign “of terror” is over.
