The Rematch

The Rematch takes a look at the thin line between love and hate in sports; a show that examines the nature of media and popular opinion by giving athletes an open forum to reclaim their identities from labels like polarizing, mercurial, and immature. Hosted by NBA Veteran Etan Thomas, this unique athlete-first podcast will explore the differences between how we see professional athletes and who they really are.

Keyon Dooling

In 2012 Keyon Dooling lost everything. The 11-year NBA veteran had just re-signed with the Boston Celtics when a chance encounter with a stranger suddenly sent his world spiraling out of control. In a matter of a few weeks the man with a reputation for exemplary behavior both on and off the court — a model for younger players entering the league — abruptly quit basketball and checked himself into a psychiatric hospital. It was there that he was forced to confront childhood memories he had suppressed for decades. By the time he recovered from his breakdown, he had lost basketball — but he had also found himself. In this episode of The Rematch, Keyon shares his powerful story and his fresh perspective on life.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Chamique Holdsclaw

Chamique Holdsclaw is basketball royalty, but uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. The three-time NCAA champion was selected first in the 1999 WNBA draft, but within a few years her off-court problems began to overshadow her play. In 2004, Holdsclaw made headlines when she announced that she was battling depression. Eight years later, she hit rock bottom after an arrest following an altercation in which she smashed a car window and fired a handgun. On this episode of The Rematch, Chamique shares her story of redemption, and explains the dangers of denying yourself peace of mind.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

His Black Power salute was at once a gesture of defiance, frustration and solidarity. The silver-medal winner sits down with The Rematch’s Etan Thomas to talk activism, fake news and how he truly believes that his moment on the Olympic podium was his reason for living.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf

Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was known as a sharpshooter during his NBA career. His accuracy from behind both the free throw and three-point lines was legendary. But his career was suddenly derailed when his refusal to stand for the national anthem became headline news. Many fans viewed his form of protest as anti-American — Abdul Rauf was fined and suspended, and received arson and death threats. In the wake of a similar protest staged last season by NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Abdul-Rauf joins The Rematch to clear the air about what he was doing, and discusses the various forms of athlete activism.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
