CSPN presents Know the Score: Serena’s Dominance

Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score!


This week, we discuss the dominance of Serena Williams, who was named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year. What is her impact on tennis and the world of sports overall, and why is there even a debate about her greatness? Our panel also visits the NBA, including Rajon Rondo‘s unacceptable on-court behavior, the copy-paste apology and the league’s mishandling of the situation, plus the unheralded excellence of the San Antonio Spurs. Finally, a recap of Thursday night’s NFL game, also known as the “Condiment Bowl” with those color rush unis, and a preview of the slate of games for Week 15.

All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
