Robert “Scoop” Jackson joins the show to discuss his journey in the media industry. He speaks about how his work ethic carried him throughout his career and his determination to make sure people respected him above all else (12:58).

Scoop speaks about what basketball means to Chicago, and how the city is the heartbeat of all of basketball (48:38). They discuss which young star could become the next face of the NBA, as Scoop believes the post-LeBron era is happening right now (01:17:23).
