POPSpot Sports Radio will chat with James Donaldson, a former NBA All-Star, and current author, global ambassador, and community activist. Donaldson will share his views on why the NBA should develop a “real” mentoring program, why the NCAA should set aside a deferred "trust fund" for athletes who graduate, and why his longtime community activism has spread all the way to China.

James Donaldson is a Washington State University graduate (’79). After an outstanding basketball career with WSU, he went on to play professional basketball in for many NBA teams (including 1988 All-Star with Dallas Mavericks), several European teams,  and Greece, and he toured with The Harlem Globetrotters to wrap up his career. In 2010, James was elected as a board member for the NBA Retired Players Association, and was the recipient of the NBA Legends of Basketball ABC Award, awarded for outstanding contributions in Athletics–Business–Community.

Currently, James is a director in China with the China Service Center for Friendship and Cooperation with Foreign Countries Studying Abroad Department.
