Maria Menounos, AfterBuzz TV CEO

“When it comes to fearless and groundbreaking women, in the world of sports broadcasting, Bonnie Jill is the poster child. Who else could lay claim to being the first and only NBA female scout, an NBA executive, and an NBA and NFL cheerleader, too, not to mention a network broadcaster.  Bonnie-Jill has shattered every wall in her path and I have no doubt that, in the digital arena, at AfterBuzz, she will do the same.”

Keven Undergaro, AfterBuzz TV Founder

“The sports podcast world has yet to find its Erin Andrews and AfterBuzz TV just did with Bonnie Jill. We are thrilled to have Bonnie Jill on our network.”

Metta World Peace First Guest on Bonnie-Jill Laflin  The Weekly Pass.

This week Metta World Peace (the basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest) joined the panel for a conversation about the current landscape of the NBA, his appearance on CBS’s Celebrity Big Brother, details about his philanthropic adventures (which include his new app and digital platform he created called, Gradelo, and his modern lifestyle brand, The Pandas Friend) – – ALL while getting a relaxing massage. Yes, you read that correctly: a massage.

Who Makes the Better Roommate: Kobe or Omarosa?

With being newly evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house, to have a little fun, one of the first questions for Mr. World Peace was who is the better teammate, Kobe or Omarosa? “Kobe, because Kobe is not going to let me lose. Kobe’s the best,” he said.

How Lonzo Ball is willing to sacrifice more than Iverson and Kobe – Predicts one day he will be a Champion.

“He accepts the pressure and not many people can do that. I also like the fact he’s a rapper. He’s entrepreneurial. He’s got his own clothes, and he does what he wants. I also like the fact that he’s very patient. He’s a very patient guy. He sacrifices his shooting percentage for his team. This year, he would pass the ball and he would often be out of rhythm so then he’s missing 10 shots a game. Now his percentage is 20%. Everybody is banging on him about his percentage, but they don’t understand that if it was Kobe or Iverson, they’re not going to sacrifice their rhythm for another player. Lonzo does that. That’s what Lebron did when he would miss big shots because he was trying to give his other teammates some shine. That’s what Lonzo does. So Lonzo is going to be champion one day,” World Peace explains when asked about Lonzo Ball.

“In his prime, Kobe better than Lebron”

“If you want to compare primes. Kobe in his prime will definitely get the better. Kobe is too good,” said Mr. World Peace when asked about Kobe vs. Lebron.

“If the NCAA won’t pay you, find another way to get paid.”

With the news surfacing about the NCAA scandal Mr. World Peace had one very important point of view. “If you want to get paid, and the NCAA is not paying you, find another way to get paid. There’s so many opportunities out there.”
