Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score!
This week, we begin with a bittersweet appreciation for Serena Jameka Williams the great, who fell short in the women’s Australian open final as of recording time. Then, it’s off to the NFL to talk about the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos making it to Super Bowl 50, media coverage of Cam Newton going into overdrive, and which Broncos player wanted to do what to Tom Brady?? Finally, on the hardwood, the Cavs move on to Lue, Boogie goes off, and Curry and the Warriors continue to dominate vs. the Spurs.
All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
