Roundtable: The WNBA has flight woes and so does Cam Newton
And where should Carmelo Anthony land?
The Undefeated’s Roundtable takes on the hottest trending topics in sports, race and culture.
Indiana Fever forward Natalie Achonwa sparked controversy when she detailed on Twitter the team’s prolonged voyage from Seattle to Indiana through Atlanta. The team missed its connection and had to take an eight-hour bus ride to get back home, with many trials and tribulations along the way. Unlike NBA teams, WNBA teams are prohibited from taking charter flights.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton’s original flight from Paris was canceled, which landed him a regular seat on the next available flight, a 10-hour ride to Dallas. In a viral video, Newton is seen unsuccessfully trying to pay a man $1,500 to trade seats with him. What would it take for you to trade seats with an NFL player like Newton?
Finally, rumors have surfaced that Carmelo Anthony wants to end his NBA career with his former team, the New York Knicks. The panel’s host, senior writer Jerry Bembry, digital video producer Tesfaye Negussie and senior writer Michael Fletcher discuss whether the Knicks would be a good fit for the 13-year veteran.
