Current Sports | April 20, 2017


Detroit Tigers' Skid; NBA Playoffs; NBA MVP; James Moore; Cody J. Tucker; Charles Rogers.

Get ready for some unforgettable stories on today's "Current Sports with Al Martin." Opening the show, Al and engineer Isaac Constans recap the news of the day. Al explains why the Detroit Tigers' hot start to the season might not continue, and the reason is a Detroit staple. Then, does Russell Westbrook care about his stats? Apparently not, but nonetheless, his eye-popping stat lines haven't translated into playoff wins. Then, James Moore, fullback for the 1988 MSU Rose Bowl-winning squad and founder of the "Speaking With A Purpose," sits across the table to discuss what has collapsed in the guidance of young athletes. James does his best to analyze how the current conundrum relates to the late Aaron Hernandez. Then, Cody J. Tucker, Lansing State Journal sports writer, helps to sail out the rest of the show. Cody gives an inside look on how he released a feature about Lions, Spartan and Saginaw legend Charles Rogers.  From beginning to end, Cody doesn't reserve what he learned in interviewing Rogers and those close to him.
