On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by heaping major praise on Oklahoma City Thunder rookie big man Chet Holmgren following his Summer League debut. Holmgren looked as good as advertised, and he has to be the first sign of real optimism for Thunder fans since Kevin Durant left town back in 2016. Speaking of KD, with reports coming out now that the Brooklyn Nets are willing to wait things out on any potential Durant trade until they get the massive haul they're looking for, what are the chances that they run it back next season? If KD, Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons are healthy and engaged, they have one of the best trios in the Eastern Conference. What's more, Brooklyn queitly boasts one of the deepest rosters in all of basketball when you factor in guys like Seth Curry, Joe Harris, Royce O'Neale and TJ Warren. Chances are this team ultimately gets broken up, but you have to admit it would be wild to see them run it back for one Last Dance. Later, The Athletic Nets beat writer Alex Schiffer swings by to discuss how difficulty it's going to be to put together a Durant trade that makes sense for all parties, Kyrie's general lack of team success since he left Cleveland, how the infamous Nets Big 3 would have fared if they actually stuck together, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G engage in a spirited debate about whether or not the addition of Kyrie Irving would be enough to vault the Los Angeles Lakers into title contention. On one hand, Kyrie's career has been in a downward spiral ever since he left LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers back in 2017. On the other, is it fair to say that Kyrie, LeBron and Anthony Davis would easily form the talented trio in the NBA? Both guys make salient points here so we'll let you be the judge to determine who had the winning argument. Plus, J-Mac reacts to the reports that Golden State Warriors are interested in bringing Kevin Durant back to The Bay now that he's available for trade. As cool as it sounds that the Greatest Team in NBA history (KD, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green) might link up yet again, the fact remains that a reunion is nothing more than pipedream; There is no way Durant returns to Golden State, especially after they won the title without him. Finally, Jason closes the show by sharing the details of a private Instagram conversation he had with Durant in which the pair went back and forth over KD's motivations moving forward.

On today's special 4th of July episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on blockbuster trade that saw the Utah Jazz send big man Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Folks around the NBA insist that the Jazz 'won' the trade since they got 4 first round picks in the deal, but J-Mac argues that Minnesota deserves credit for pushing all in in hopes of cracking the top-4 of the Western Conference; the T'Wolves should be one of the top teams in the West during the regular season, and given the franchise's history of mediocrity, any type of postseason run should be viewed as a home run. Moreover, have you seen what the Jazz roster looks like these days? Gross. They're more likely to trade Donovan Mitchell and start tanking their way to the bottom than they are to make the playoffs next season. Later, actor/singer Leon swings by to discuss why some cast members on the set of the hoops classic ‘Above the Rim' were jealous of his wardrobe, what it was like playing pickup with Michael Jordan back in college, how Kevin Durant's trade demand out of Brooklyn could impact the rest of the NBA moving forward, why it was such a big mistake for Durant to leave the Golden State Warriors, how Jordan's Bulls would have fared against the Durant-Steph Curry Warriors, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason open things up by sharing his thoughts on USC and UCLA bolting from the Pac-12 to the Big Ten conference. College football has been chaotic for years now (NIL, transfer portal, College Football Playoff expansion), but this could be the one that takes the cake. It's one of the rare instances where a clear money grab is actually good for the sport as a whole. Now, the only question is whether or not Notre Dame decides to join up too. Later, J-Mac does a deep dive into Kevin Durant's formal trade request from the Brooklyn Nets. It's clear that seeing Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors win another title without him broke KD's psyche, and now he's looking to latch one with a club that will give a chance to settle the score. Of course none of this would've ever happened had he not hitched his wagon to the mercurial Kyrie Irving, but I digress. The only problem with trading for Durant, however, is that he has a history of injuries and he's clearly in the twilight of his prime years. Jason tries to assemble trade packages that would make both KD and the Nets happy, but it's hard to make something happen that would satisfy all parties involved. Would the Phoenix Suns give up Devin Booker in a deal? Do the Miami Heat have enough to get something done? Would a young stud like Evan Mobley or Scottie Barnes become available? These negotiations could drag on well into the summer. Finally, Jason closes the show by discussing what's next for the Nets now that both KD and Kyrie appear to be on their way out the door. In fact, J-Mac has one radical plan that he thinks could keep Brooklyn afloat for the foreseeable future: build around Ben Simmons.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off by sharing their thoughts on Draymond Green's assertion that the Golden State Warriors never would have won their titles in 2017 and 2018 without Kevin Durant. As crazy as it sounds, Draymond is right! Those Cleveland Cavaliers led by LeBron James and Kyrie Irving were arguably the best team in NBA history not to win a championship. Later, J-Mac explains why he believes the Atlanta Hawks hit a home run with their acquisition of All-Star point guard Dejounte Murray. Trae Young and Murray are easily the top backcourt in the Eastern Conference, and should make the Hawks legitimate title contenders. Finally, the guys preview the start of NBA free agency by discussing which players might change teams over the next few days. Will Jalen Brunson be enough to make the New York Knicks relevant again? Might the Los Angeles Lakers be able to rehabilitate a Mo Bamba's career the same way they did for Malik Monk?

On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by sharing his thoughts on the New York Knicks' relentless pursuit of free agent point guard Jalen Brunson. Brunson is a good but not great player so the fact that New York is so hell bent on acquiring him does give him a little bit of pause… unless there's another big move coming after that. Could the Knicks open up even more cap space to add Zach LaVine as well? Could they turn all those extra first round picks they just acquired to make a run at Donovan Mitchell? The next few days should be spicy! Former NBA veteran Cuttino Mobley swings by to discuss why he believes Kyrie Irving is misunderstood, the constant leadership questions surrounding the Brooklyn Nets, why the Nets – and other teams around the league – are so hesitant to offer Kyrie a full max deal despite his prodigious talent, Ben Simmons headspace moving forward following a full season in limbo, how Steph Curry would've fared playing in the 1990s and 2000s, why he believes LeBron James is the GOAT, why the parity in today's NBA is as good as it's ever been, how analytics has hurt the NBA in some ways, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by sharing his thoughts on Kyrie Irving's decision to opt-in to his contract and return to the Brooklyn Nets for next season. The Nets front office played a game of chicken with Kyrie and won. We all knew that Irving didn't have much leverage coming in so it should come as no surprise then that he caved so quickly. The only question at this point then becomes whether or not Brooklyn will actually keep the mercurial point guard beyond the upcoming season. Later, J-Mac breaks down John Wall's decision to link up with the Los Angeles Clippers following his buy out from the Houston Rockets. The addition of Wall not only makes the Clippers the deepest team in Western Conference but arguably the best overall team in the NBA. Finally, BasketballNews.com Sr. NBA Draft analyst Matt Babcock swings by to discuss why he's so high on Detroit Pistons point guard Jaden Ivey and why he believes the Russell Westbrook comparisons are valid, why teams like the San Antonio Spurs might be willing to tank for Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson, and much more!

Would the Nets really kowtow to such a mercurial personality? Are the Los Angeles Lakers really that desperate to land another star player as LeBron James heads into the twilight of his NBA career? Expect both of those questions to be answered in the next few days. Later, the guys share their thoughts on the NBA Draft. The Orlando Magic shocked the world where they selected Paolo Banchero essentially sight-unseen with the first overall pick. Let's hope the risky move pays off for them.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G do a deep dive into the reports that Kyrie Irving could force his way to the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers or Los Angeles Clippers if the Brooklyn Nets don't offer him the long-term extension he's been seeking. J-Mac's frustrations with Kyrie are well-documented, but even he seems flabbergasted that Irving thinks he still holds this much power. Kyrie has been a disruptor everywhere he's been for over five years, and we're supposed to believe that teams are still willing to bend over backwards to appease him? Stop it! However, Rob G argues that LeBron James and the Lakers would welcome Irving (and the headache that comes along with him) if it means they can get off the Russell Westbrook contract and put themselves back into championship contention in the same offseason. The Lakers have always been a star-driven franchise; they have never been the type to build and develop for the future. Would the Lakers really tie themselves to old LeBron, mercurial Kyrie and oft-injured Anthony Davis moving forward? Maybe. The guys agree that there's no way the Los Angeles Clippers would get involved considering how much depth they already have alongside Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, but the New York Knicks are probably even more desperate than the Lakers to land another star so it's entirely possible they mortgage their future for Kyrie. Either way, this Kyrie Irving soap opera is far from finished.  Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts!

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you wall-to-wall analysis of the Golden State Warriors' Game 6 victory to earn the 2022 NBA championship. First, for the Boston Celtics, it's clear that this team needs a real point guard if they want to get over the hump. Superstar-to-be Jayson Tatum had a bad series and reigning Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart got exposed a little, but a lot of their issues would be solved if they had someone who could settle the squad in tense situations and avoid turning the ball over. If Boston can find a lead ball handler in the offseason they could be right back in the NBA Finals in 2023. But enough about the Celtics; today is all about the Warriors and Steph Curry. Golden State cemented their status as one of the greatest dynasties in sports history, and Steph now has as many rings - 4 - as The King, LeBron James. Does it mean Curry should be considered as good all-time as LeBron? Of course not. Does it mean that Steph has clinched a spot in the all-time top-10? That's certainly debatable. And, with the way Curry takes care of his body, coupled with the Warriors' roster construction and style of play, don't be surprised to see him make a strong run at ring number five. Finally, the guys close the show by discussing what this Warriors championship means for Kevin Durant heading into the 2022-23 NBA season. Now that Golden State has won before, with and after KD, the case can be made that there isn't a single player under pressure to win a title entering next season than Durant.  Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts! #FSRWeekends See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Wood may not be a household name, but he appears to be a perfect fit alongside Luka Doncic in Dallas. The one thing that the Mavs lacked against the Golden State Warriors was a legitimate option at center, and Wood is more than capable of filling that void. If the Mavs can also keep Jalen Brunson this summer, they should be a top-4 team in the Western Conference next season. Later, The Athletic's Anthony Slater swings by to discuss how covering the NBA Finals differs from the earlier rounds, why he believes this could be the start of a second dynastic run for the Warriors, how it was Kevin Durant who actually set the wheels in motion that led to Andrew Wiggins becoming a Warrior, what sets Steph Curry apart from other superstars around the League, the likelihood that Steph finished his career as a top-10 player in NBA history, how the tough road to the NBA Finals may have worn down the Boston Celtics, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by discussing Dwyane Wade's assertion that the NBA Mount Rushmore should be expanded to five players to include Steph Curry. If the Mount Rushmore is based on a player's impact on the game of basketball, and not necessarily championships or who we determined to be the all-time best players, then Steph certainly has a case. However, are we sure he's more impactful in the modern era than guys like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and LeBron James? That's the problem with exercises like this; you can only keep 4 guys, and unfortunately, Curry probably doesn't make the cut. Later, former NFL MVP Shaun Alexander swings by to discuss the joy he gets from being a father of 12, his upcoming Fatherhood Festival event this weekend in Canton, why he hasn't allowed his boys to play tackle football yet, his time as a league MVP with the Seattle Seahawks, why he views Jonathan Taylor, Nick Chubb, Dalvin Cook and Derrick Henry as a cut above the other running backs in the NFL, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you wall-to-wall reaction to the Golden State Warriors' Game 5 victory over the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. Steph Curry was uncharacteristically bad, but thanks to Andrew Wiggins, the Dubs are now up 3-2 and on the cusp of another championship. Wiggins was miscast as a leading man in Minnesota for years, and now that he has the freedom of a third or fourth option in Golden State, we're seeing him realize his potential right before our eyes; just please don't get crazy and start calling him the Finals MVP. Speaking of Wiggins, he never would've ended up with the Warriors were it not for Kevin Durant's decision to agree to a sign-and-trade for D'Angelo Russell (who the Dubs then flipped for Wiggins). Can you imagine what's going through KD's mind right now as the Warriors sit on the precipice of another championship? Let's just say it's going to be a very unpleasant week in the Durant household. Finally, the guys close the show by discussing what's gone wrong for the Celtics in the two games. Five quarters ago, Boston seemed poised to take a commanding 3-1 series lead; instead, they're staring down the barrel of elimination. There's a lot of blame to go around but the biggest issue seems to be that both Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown can't stop turning the ball over. If Boston has any hope of extending the series to Game 7, they need to protect the basketball.  Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts!

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you wall-to-wall reaction to the Boston Celtics' Game 3 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Steph Curry suffered a foot injury that could sideline him for Game 4, but even still, the biggest storyline to come out of Wednesday's action had to be the play of Draymond Green. After a week of injecting himself into social media beefs with Kevin Durant and a war of words with Cornbread Maxwell, Green was an absolute disaster on the floor in Game 3; Things have gotten so bad on the offensive end that both Jason and Rob G believe that Steve Kerr may have no choice but to cut Green's minutes moving forward… and even that might not matter if Curry isn't 100%. Speaking of Steph, if the Warriors end up falling to the Celtics in these NBA Finals (which is looking more and more likely these days), is it fair to say that he's officially eliminated from top-10 all-time consideration? As great as he is, the harsh reality is that his only NBA championship without Kevin Durant would have came against a Cleveland Cavaliers team that was missing both Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. J-Mac and Rob G mostly disagree on this topic, but it definitely makes for an interesting discussion. Finally, the guys close the show by explaining why they both currently have Jaylen Brown - not Jayson Tatum - as their pick to win NBA Finals MVP.  Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts!

The Warriors blew the game open in third quarter, and unlike in Game 1, never looked back as they cruised to victory. Even though you've lost home court advantage in the series, if you're a Warriors fan, you still have to be feeling pretty good  about yourselves as the series shifts back to Boston. Steph Curry has been the most consistently great player in the NBA Finals thus far, and he's even shown flashes of being a decent defender to boot. Golden State needs Steph to be the best player on the floor if they're going to win the championship, and he's been exactly that through two games. Later, the guys go long on Donovan Mitchell's future in Utah following a report that he's 'unsettled and unnerved' about the Jazz' long-term outlook. If Mitchell is that unhappy about his situation in Utah then he absolutely should force his way out of town, and the Miami Heat and New York Knicks seem like the two teams who make the most sense as potential landing spots.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you wall-to-wall reaction to Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The Boston Celtics closed the game on a 40-16 run in the fourth quarter to steal the win (and home court in the series). Jayson Tatum had an off-shooting night for Boston, but with guys like Al Horford and Derrick White burying threes from the outside, the Celtics didn't really need his scoring. Jason and Rob G are split on whether or not those role players can continue their hot shooting moving forward, but it was a sight to behold in Game 1. While neither guy is ready to back off their prediction that the Warriors would win the championship, the fact of that matter is that Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole were mostly bad for Golden State, and Steve Kerr's defensive schemes and lineup rotations left a lot to be desired. The only Warriors player who seemed to avoid blame after the game was Steph Curry. Curry had 21 points in a scintillating first quarter but was pretty quiet the rest of the way.

The Brooklyn Nets' decision to differ their first round pick from the Philadelphia 76ers to 2023 is something more folks should be talking about. If the James Harden experiment continues to go awry or if Joel Embiid gets struck by another injury (neither of which would be all that shocking), the Nets could find themselves with a lottery pick.

With Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson still at the tail ends of their primes, and guys like Jordan Poole, Jonathan Kuminga and James Wiseman coming up behind them, few teams are set up better for success than Golden State. Finally, DallasBasketball.com and 105.3 The Fan Mavericks insider Mike Fisher swings by to discuss why the Mavs need a second star alongside Luka Doncic to make 'the leap', why he believes Jalen Brunson is best suited for being a bench player on a championship team, what makes Luka such a great villain in the NBA, why Dallas historically hasn't been a destination for stars and what Luka can do to change that, the possible pursuit of big men like Rudy Gobert and Deandre Ayton this summer, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G get your week started with a deep dive into the Golden State Warriors' Game 3 victory over the Dallas Mavericks to take a commanding 3-0 series lead. This series is eerily similar to what we saw in 2007 when LeBron James squared off against the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals. Luka Doncic by himself, like LeBron, is no match for a great team headlined by a generational talent. When it's all said and done, we're going to look back at the these Warriors as one of the greatest dynasties in sports history. In fact, Jason argues that the Steph Curry-led Warriors are already the greatest dynasty the NBA has seen in over 50 years. Yes, even better than the Showtime Lakers and Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls. Later, the guys discuss what's gone wrong for Luka and the Mavs in this series, and explain why neither of them believes Doncic is going to win a championship in Dallas any time soon. Both agree that the only way the Mavericks will be able to get over the hump is if they can land a superstar sidekick to take some of the pressure off Luka. Only one problem: Who can they get that fits the bill? Julius Randle? Bradley Beal? Zach LaVine? This summer should be really interesting in Dallas. Finally, Jason and Rob G close the show by sharing their Best Bet for tonight's Game 4 between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat.  Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts! #FSRWeekends See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Straight Fire w/ Jason McIntyre - The NIL Inspired Saban vs. Jimbo Blood Feud is Good for College Football & Another NBA Playoff Blowout

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep into the Nick Saban-Jimbo Fisher war of words over how NIL is being applied in college football. While some might call two of the most high-profile coaches in the sport trading barbs through the media a black eye of sorts, the guys argue that this is actually a good thing for college football as there hasn't been this much offseason buzz around the sport in years. As far as Saban is concerned, however, it's clear that he feels as though his perch atop the college football mountaintop is being threatened by guys like Fisher. Now that school 'benefit packages' are being made public and supporters can give recruits as much as they want, Saban has come to the realization that more top prospects will choose to go elsewhere. Can the Crimson Tide dynasty continue if Saban doesn't have the most talented roster year-in and year-out? Only time will tell. Later, Jason shares a quick thought on the Boston Celtics' blowout victory over the Miami Heat to tie the series 1-1. Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart were brilliant for Boston, but the bigger takeaway has to be just how boring the last week of NBA Playoff basketball has been; We've seen two Game 7s and two Conference Finals games and none of them have been remotely competitive heading into the fourth quarter. Let's hope all that changes as we head into the weekend.
