    Today's guest is Eric Hasseltine, the voice of the Memphis Grizzlies. Eric and I go way back, and we began the conversation talking about the early days of our friendship. Eric chronicles his path in broadcasting that eventually landed him in Memphis. His ascent to the Grizzlies play-by-play man came with great heartbreak and Eric goes into detail about those very difficult days. We thank talk about Ja Morant and his greatness already at such an early age. Eric was in Memphis during the "grindhouse" era, and he talks about those Memphis teams that came close to an NBA Finals appearance.

Watson was suspended six games last week for violating the league's personal conduct policy. and the NFL appealed the ruling. Goodell himself could have rendered the verdict on Watson, but instead appointed someone else to make the ruling. My question is why? Stop wasting everyone's time! Learn more about your ad choices.

    In today's episode I talk about cancel culture being alive and well in the United States. On Sunday Oklahoma assistant football coach announced his resignation. Why? Because in a team meeting, he grabbed the iPad of a player for not following directions and started reading what the player had on his iPad. One of the words he read was apparently the "N" word. That caused the coach who had been with the Oklahoma program since 1999 to resign. I talk about Gundy's social media statement and that of the head coach as well which was disgraceful! I then discuss and excellent article written by Dwayne Bray of Andscape on Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. Ross has been at the forefront of racial equality and minority hiring in the NFL, for years, but now is facing pressure amid this country's continued march towards "wokeism". I believe a lot of it has to do with his political contributions. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
