Punch me in my face when you see me! On this episode of "Current Sports with Al Martin," Al discusses comments fired back and forth between Charles Barkley and Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors. Barkley, who works for TNT as an NBA analyst, said he wishes someone would just punch Green in the face for his trash talk and his antics. Green responded by telling Barkley that he should take his best shot. Al, engineer Ian Hawley, and production assistant Jon Simon react to the dialogue, and give their thoughts about trash talk's place in sports today. Next, Taya Reimer, former MSU women's Basketball player, joins the show. Reimer recently signed a free-agent contract with the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks and tells of how she got the opportunity to make a child-hood dream come true!
