While NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts has no kids of her own, every single day the well-being of more than 450 young men is her top priority. On Monday, CBS This Morning highlighted Roberts’ close connections to players and her rise to NBPA head.
“These guys, they may change teams, they may change agents, they may even change wives and girlfriends, but the one constant as long as they are players is the players’ association,” she said. “My feeling about my relation to them is genuine. I have 450 kids.”
Through the in-depth profile, CBS revisited the South Bronx housing projects where Roberts grew up, and the Bronx Supreme Court where her mother took her to watch trials for entertainment. To check out the video feature, click here.
