On today's episode, Jason makes his triumphant return from his weeklong tropical vacation. First up on the docket? Major League Baseball's decision to suspend San Diego Padres superstar Fernando Tatis Jr 80 games for PED use. Tatis broke the rules, for sure, but it is notable that MLB seems to be the only American professional sport that seems to have no problem whatsoever coming down hard on their star players. Later, J-Mac and Producer Rob G do a deep dive into the uncertainty surrounding the New York Jets' quarterback position in the wake of Zach Wilson's knee injury. Wilson is expected to miss about 4 weeks, but Jason says now is the perfect time to make a trade for Jimmy Garoppolo. New York is desperate for relevance, and Jimmy G has the smile and talent to make the Jets respectable again. Rob argues that the addition of Garoppolo would put New York in a race towards mediocrity, but J-Mac says mediocrity would still be more preferable than being a dumpster fire. This really was one of the more unique debates the guys have had in some time. Finally, the guys close the show with a few thoughts on some of the hype coming out of week 1 of the NFL Preseason. Does any of it matter? Should we be excited or worried? Their answers may surprise you!

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a few thoughts on the impending suspension of Deshaun Watson. All signs point to the ruling coming down sometime on Monday, and rumor has it the actual suspension could be as little as four games. If that is indeed the case, savvy bettors could make some serious money on Cleveland Browns AFC North and Super Bowl futures. Sticking in the NFL, this whole Watson saga has underscored one painfully obvious fact: there is a dearth of legitimate starting quarterbacks in the NFL. Why else would Cleveland trade for Watson - and give him richest guaranteed deal in NFL history - knowing that a suspension was coming? More than half the teams in the League are without sure-fire starters at the game's most important position. Moving over to the NBA, the guys share their thoughts on the life and legacy of former Boston Celtics big man Bill Russell. Whether or not you think he tops Wilt Chamberlain as the greatest center of his generation, we can all agree he's a true legend and an icon. Finally, J-Mac and Rob close the show by telling us why the Los Angeles Angels should seriously consider trading Shohei Ohtani ahead of this week's MLB Trade Deadline. The Angels are going nowhere fast, and as much as it might hurt, the easiest way to return to relevancy would be to flip Ohtani for a haul of players and prospects.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G start things off with a few thoughts on Jerry West's very public verbal takedown of JJ Redick. Redick famously said a few months ago that Hall of Fame players like Bob Cousy were being overrated by the basketball media given that he was playing against 'plumbers' on a nightly basis. Well, The Logo fired back in a big way over the weekend. While West didn't refute Redick's 'plumbers' comment (because it's factually accurate), he did point out that Redick was never more than a role player and as such should know better than to talk out of turn about Hall of Fame-caliber players (which is absolutely fair). It's one of those rare instances where both guys on either side of the debate were right. Later, J-Mac and Rob G engage in a war of words of their own over Lamar Jackson's current contract situation. Both guys agree that Jackson deserves a big pay day, where they disagree though is whether or not Jackson should hold out for a fully guaranteed deal. The running narrative over the years has been that you can't build a dynasty if the quarterback is making all the money, and that's precisely why guys like Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes took less than market value. On the other hand, teams like the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints have consistently proven that the NFL salary cap is kind of a myth.  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.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off by debating whether or not the MLB All-Star Game is actually the best all-star game going right now. We can all agree that the Pro Bowl has become unwatchable and not enough people in this country care about hockey, so it really comes down to the MLB and NBA All-Star Games. Does the fact that the NBA stars play deep into the fourth quarter outweigh the fact the MLB stars actually play hard (if only for about an inning each) when they're out there? The guys really went at it on this one. Later, J-Mac shares a quick thought on the reports that Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette has put on upwards of 30 pounds during this offseason. With Chris Godwin out, Rob Gronkowski retired and Fournette looking hefty, are we sure that Tom Brady and the Bucs should be viewed as locks to win the NFC South? Only time will tell. Finally, the guys close the show by discussing the latest rumors surrounding a potential Russell Westbrook-for-Kyrie Irving trade. One prominent NBA reporter has called any potential deal 'unlikely', which has led Jason to proclaim that the Los Angeles Lakers should get off Kyrie and instead pivot to Indiana. Is it safe to say that a trade package of Buddy Hield and Myles Turner would be better than Kyrie by himself? J-Mac says yes, Rob G says no - what say you?!?

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on the wild Deandre Ayton saga that took place on Thursday. The Indiana Pacers thought they had Ayton signed, sealed and deliver... for about 3 hours. The Phoenix Suns had no choice but to match the offer sheet and keep their star center. Even if the Suns had no interest in giving Ayton a max deal, they couldn't afford to lose him for nothing when they're this close to a championship; Making matters worse, the Ayton deal essentially removes Phoenix from the Kevin Durant sweepstakes. Later, J-Mac and Producer Rob G  hit us with a deep dive into the report that Steph Curry is quietly recruiting Durant back to the Golden State Warriors. Both guys agree that it would be a bad look for KD to come running back to the Warriors after they just won the championship, but what does it say about Steph that he even wants him back in the first place? Jason says that any rings Steph wins – with or without Durant – will only cement his status as a top-10 player in NBA history. Rob G, on the other hand, says the addition of KD could actually hurt Curry's long-term legacy given that it would now be the second time he's felt the need to recruit a better player to his roster.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into the report that Kyrie Irving would prefer to stay with the Brooklyn Nets – whether Kevin Durant remains on the team or not. Has Kyrie finally come to the realization that no other team actually wants to trade for him so he's trying to save face? Or is this just the latest case of an NBA franchise trying to manipulate a member of the media to get their preferred narrative out to the public? We'll find out soon enough. Speaking of the Nets, now that Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell is officially on the trade block, it's safe to say that his future is now directly tied to Durant's. That's not to say that the two all-stars will ultimately get traded for each other, but rather that any team linked to KD will also now be linked to Mitchell. Later, the guys explain why Scottie Pippen is correct when he says that it's tougher to be successful in today's NBA than it was back in the 1990s. Players are bigger, faster and more skilled than ever before, so it only makes sense the competition would be greater as well. Finally, J-Mac closes the show by discussing why he thinks the Cleveland Browns should try to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo to hold down the fort while Deshaun Watson is out due to suspension. In fact, Jason argues that Jimmy G as the bridge quarterback would actually make the Browns the team to beat in the AFC North.

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.

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 and Producer Rob G kick things off by weighing in on the reports that it's now expected that Kyrie Irving will be playing for a new team next season. It's clear at this point that Irving is using several members of the NBA media to push his agenda in an attempt to gain leverage over the Brooklyn Nets, and yet Jason and Rob are at odds about whether or not his plan will actually work. 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 the flip side, the Oklahoma City Thunder scored with Chet Holmgren and Jalen Williams in the lottery, and the New York Knicks pulled off a trade that netted them three future first round picks (for someone like Donovan Mitchell) and opened up cap space this summer (for someone like Jalen Brunson).

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.

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!

Draymond Green Has Been a Disaster, This Sucks for Steph Curry & Jaylen Brown vs Jayson Tatum for Finals MVP?

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!

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into the Golden State Warriors' Game 2 win over the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. 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. However, anybody who trades for him needs to do so knowing that he'll likely never be the best player on a championship team. There are only a handful of true 'No. 1' players in the NBA, and Mitchell ain't at that level.  Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts! #FSR Weekends  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

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. Does he deserve more criticism for turning in another second-half clunker? You won't believe what the guys have to say about that one!

Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G bring you a nuanced conversation on Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors Dynasty. History says it's much more difficult to prolong a dynasty than it is to build one; there's a reason why Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs are the only other team this century to have prolonged levels of success in between championships. The Warriors, like the Spurs, were built around a generation superstar, found secondary stars late in the lottery and in the second round of the NBA Draft, and benefitted from more than a little bit of luck on multiple occasions. Would the Spurs have extended their run if they didn't 'luck' into  Kawhi Leonard? Probably not. Would the Warriors have won those two championship if they didn't 'luck' into Kevin Durant? Doubt it. Later, the guys go head-to-head debating whether or not the Warriors decision to keep lottery picks James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody rather than flip them for a proven star was actually the right move. Right now, it looks like a shrewd move given that Golden State is back in the NBA Finals. However, given that the Warriors are already viewed as a dynasty, will they get more credit for being contenders or do they actually need to win the championship to justify the decision?  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

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.

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.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off by sharing their thoughts on the Golden State Warriors' drubbing of the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into the Boston Celtics' thrilling come-from-behind victory over the Milwaukee Bucks to even their series 2-2. Al Horford turned back the clock to the tune of 30 points, but Jason's biggest takeaway from the game was how Jayson Tatum firmly established himself as a top-5 NBA player with the way he closed out the game for Boston. Tatum has always been a prodigious scorer, but in the last two playoff series, he's stifled Kevin Durant defensively and now outshined Giannis Antetokounmpo in the clutch on the road. If that's not top-5 worthy then we don't know what it is. On the flip side of the playoff bracket, the Golden State Warriors were able to overcome a historically bad shooting night (at least by their standards) to take a 3-1 series lead over the Ja Morant-less Memphis Grizzlies. Once Morant was ruled out, many expect the Warriors to roll. However, with their best player in street clothes, the Grizzlies turned up the defensive intensity and had Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole look mostly mediocre for three quarters. Given how poor Morant is defensively, is it fair then to say that the Grizzlies are actually better off without him? Maybe we'll get that answer in Game 5.

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson weren't good, Draymond Green got ejected in the second half, Jaren Jackson Jr and Ja Morant both played well... and the Grizz still lost. You can't give away a game like that when you have that many things working if your favor. Maybe if Morant and his dad spent less time hamming it up after baskets and more time worrying about defense, Memphis wouldn't be down 0-1. Speaking of the NBA Playoffs, is it already time to put Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns on upset alert heading into tonight's Game 1 against the Dallas Mavericks? The Suns were the best team in the NBA throughout the regular season, but they haven't looked nearly as sharp so far in the postseason. The Mavs play stout defense, and they will have the best player in the series (Luka Doncic), so an upset shouldn't be all that shocking.

Maybe if Morant and his dad spent less time hamming it up after baskets and more time worrying about defense, Memphis wouldn't be down 0-1. Speaking of the NBA Playoffs, is it already time to put Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns on upset alert heading into tonight's Game 1 against the Dallas Mavericks? The Suns were the best team in the NBA throughout the regular season, but they haven't looked nearly as sharp so far in the postseason. The Mavs play stout defense, and they will have the best player in the series (Luka Doncic), so an upset shouldn't be all that shocking. Finally, Jason and Producer Rob G close the show by picking a few of the biggest winners from this past weekend's NFL Draft. The Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens both did really well, but is it fair to say that it was the Arizona Cardinals who best set themselves up for immediate success? Our fearless leader is already predicting an NFC West crown for Kyler Murray and the Cardinals! Guess only time will tell on that one.  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.

Kyrie the Culture Killer, Time to Put KD to a Decision & a Juicy Packers Trade Rumor

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G open things up with a deep dive into Kyrie Irving's comments on the heels of the Brooklyn Nets' first round exit at the hands of the Boston Celtics. After a season of self-inflicted turmoil, Kyrie admitted that his vaccine status was a distraction for the club and promised that he would get together with the Nets front office to formulate a game plan for next season. Wait, what?! You really decided to say these things after getting swept out of the playoffs?! There really isn't a less self-aware athlete in all of sports. All of this then leads to a serious question: Should the Nets be willing to offer Kyrie a max contract extension this offseason? On one hand, Irving has shown himself to be a wholly reliable superstar. On the other, by refusing to extend Kyrie, the Nets run the risk of alienating Kevin Durant. Perhaps it's time to put KD to a decision about whether or not he really trusts Kyrie to be his running mate moving forward. Later, the guys do a quick recap of all the Monday night NBA Playoff action. Could Doc Rivers and the Philadelphia 76ers really blow a 3-0 series lead? With KD and LeBron James out of the mix, would the NBA be best served by Luka Doncic making a championship run? Are we sure the Utah Jazz should build around Donovan Mitchell if they decide to blow it up? Finally, Jason and Rob G close the show with a few thoughts on the report that the Green Bay Packers have tried - and continue to try - to trade for Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller. Given that the Packers just lost Davante Adams, it makes a ton of season why they'd look to acquire the Pro Bowl tight end out of Vegas. However, between Adams, Waller and Hunter Renfrow, the Raiders just might have the best trio of receiving options in the NFL, so why would they break it up?  Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts!

Jerry West and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Hate 'Winning Time', Look Out for the New Orleans Pelicans & Is Tatum Better than KD Right Now?

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a few thoughts on Jerry West and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's war against HBO's hit television show 'Winning Time'. Apparently Cap and The Logo don't understand that the phrase 'based on true events' means what you're watching is only a fictionalized version of the truth. If they want to change the way they get portrayed moving forward, maybe they should get involved in season 2. Later, the guys share their thoughts on a trio of Game 2's in the NBA Playoffs. The Miami Heat and Memphis Grizzlies earning blowout wins shouldn't be all that shocking if you've been watching the two teams throughout the season, but the New Orleans Pelicans stealing home court from the Phoenix Suns sure was. Granted, the Pels were able to pull away only after Devin Booker left with an injury, and nobody actually expects New Orleans to win the series, but would you be surprised if they make a jump into the Top-4 of the Western Conference next season? If Zion Williamson is healthy and motivated, the Pelicans could make some serious noise in 2022-23. Finally, our fearless leader closes the show with his Best Bets for the Wednesday night slate of games in the NBA Playoffs (Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets / Philadelphia 76ers vs. Toronto Raptors / Chicago Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks).  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G get the party started with a deep dive into the Brooklyn Nets' play-in tournament victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Earlier in the week, Jason listed the Nets as one of only 5 teams he thinks can win the NBA championship this season… and he's already on the verge of backing off that claim. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving were fantastic, and the Nets still needed to hold on for dear life to beat an inferior opponent. Brooklyn won't be able to get away with that kind of play against better teams. Both Jason and Rob G have already said they've got the Jayson Tatum-led Boston Celtics winning Game 1 of the series, and at least one of the guys has gone on record in picking Boston to win the series outright. Later, Jason and Rob G share their thoughts on the Minnesota Timberwolves' thrilling come-from-behind victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. With Karl-Anthony Towns struggling, the T'Wolves leaned on young stud Anthony Edwards and #FormerLaker D'Angelo Russell to carry the load. Now while Minnesota versus Memphis in round 1 is unlikely to draw huge television ratings, with guys like Patrick Beverley and Ja Morant going at it, it certainly has the potential to be the most entertaining series of them all.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into the Los Angeles Lakers' decision to fire head coach Frank Vogel. Vogel wasn't perfect, but he was far from the reason why the Lakers failed so spectacularly this season. Rob Pelinka gave Vogel - a defensive coach - a roster full of poor defenders, and compounded the problem by allowing LeBron James and Anthony Davis to convince him into trading for Russell Westbrook. Frank was clearly the 'fall guy' for everything that's gone wrong in Los Angeles this year. With Vogel out of the picture, the only question now is who can they get to replace him? Would an established guy like Nick Nurse or Quinn Snyder be willing to take over a relatively dysfunctional team? Would the Lakers really offer the gig to the criminally overrated Doc Rivers? Is there a young and up-and-comer from the college ranks that could make the jump to the NBA? Only time will tell.

On today's episode, Jason is back from vacation with a vengeance as he and Producer Rob G bring you the definitive preview of the NBA Playoffs. Both guys are predicting that Joel Embiid, James Harden and the Philadelphia 76ers will get bounced in the first round, and neither one thinks the upstart Memphis Grizzlies are poised to make a deep playoff run. In fact, according to our fearless leader, there are only 5 teams who can the NBA championship this season: Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee Bucks, Miami Heat, Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks. The Suns with Devin Booker and Chris Paul are easily the best team in basketball, and the Bucks with Giannis Antetokounmpo are the defending champions, so it's obvious why those two teams are in. The Miami Heat have been the best team in the East for most of the season, so they're in. The Nets and Mavs picks, however, are not without controversy. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are fantastic, but can they get through that kind of gauntlet (Celtics, Bucks, Heat) without playing any defense? The Mavs have Luka Doncic, but are we sure that his calf strain is as mild as some reports are suggesting? Only time will tell!
