What’s Jefferson’s long-term plan? Look to two athletes who have made big jumps beyond sports: Michael Strahan and Nate Burleson, two NFL stars who work jobs on morning shows, Strahan on Good Morning America and Burleson on CBS Mornings. “Nate Burleson, what he’s been able to accomplish has been special,” Jefferson told Boardroom. “Michael Strahan was always just kind of that north star that everyone could point to, because he was such a trailblazer for athletes post-career. But as I’m trying to do this, it’s more of just finding a way to establish yourself as a legitimate person in this industry.”
During an interview with “Road Trippin’” with Channing Frye and ex-Spur Richard Jefferson, Horry was asked about why he thinks Olajuwon is better than Tim Duncan. Immediately, Horry makes it clear it is his personal opinion and says because of his belief he is public enemy No. 1 in San Antonio. “First of all, it’s just my opinion and I thought at the time that Dream [Olajuwon] was better than Tim and people get mad at me for saying that,” Horry said. “You got to understand I grew up an Olajuwon fan. I watched him. I played with him. I played with Tim. Tim was a hell of a player,” Horry said.
