James Worthy Helps At-Risk Youth

Guest Bio
Guest Bio: James Worthy
James  Head shot"Big Game" James Worthy is an NCAA champ, 3-time NBA champ, MVP with the Los Angeles Lakers, philanthropist and a TV host and analyst for Time Warner Cable SportsNet.

A seven-time All-Star, Worthy was voted one of the top 50 NBA players of all time in 1996, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003. His jersey (#42) is only one of nine retired by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Off the court and out of the studio, Worthy is a motivational speaker and, through the James Worthy Foundation, a dedicated philanthropist. The James Worthy Foundation has an explicit purpose: to help at-risk youth, military veterans, and their communities.
In the low-income communities, where sports are the center of their community interactions and the number one dream of "want to be" sports stars, there is a big information gap about the sources of high-quality and sustainable nutrition and energy.

NBA star, James Worthy, wants to get young athletes off "energy" drinks - which are full of empty calories, sugar and potentially harmful chemicals - and replace them with an all-natural drink that meets their nutritional needs.
