Today HBO’s Peabody award winning series, Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel, will spotlight baseball Hall Of Famer Reggie Jackson and Clippers’ point guard Chris Paul.
Bryant Gumbel sits down at Yankee Stadium with the outspoken Jackson, special adviser to the club. On the heels of his new book, “Becoming Mr. October,” the 14-time All-Star opens up about his personal life and storied career, offering insights into race relations during his playing days and the magical ‘77 and ‘78 seasons that cemented his legacy as one of the greatest clutch sluggers.
Also, in a REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated collaboration, correspondent Mary Carillo provides a better look at the newly elected president of the NBA Players Association and the catalyst behind the Clippers’ remarkable turnaround, Chris Paul.
