Davis also makes his case to emcee a possible Lakers championship parade of LeBron and Carmelo Anthony can capture the next NBA title.   Brockman renews his locked-in-won't-budge stance that being an astronaut would be the most boring thing in the world (and also in out space, apparently), and reverses his stance on Mac Jones, saying the rookie QB should be the Patriots' starter based on one pre-season game, which leads to a debate on whether or not it's irresponsible for NFL teams to throw young QB's into the fire before their ready to handle the responsibility of being a starter.
