On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the Los Angeles Dodgers' thrilling Game 5 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Max Scherzer got the first save of his legendary career - albeit on a very controversial call - to push the Dodgers into the NLCS. Tough way to end one of the best divisional series in recent memory. Later, Jason recaps the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles got the backdoor cover, but this game was never really in doubt. Tom Brady and the Bucs were cruising for most of the game before they took their foot off the gas late. On the Philadelphia side, it's clear that Jalen Hurts isn't the long-term answer at the quarterback position. The Eagles should either tank the rest of the season for a high draft pick or make a move for Desahun Watson. Plus, Basketball Hall of Famer Grant Hill swings by to discuss his expectations on Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks this season after they made a run to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2021, why the Milwaukee Bucks provide something of a blueprint for other teams and the importance of being patient, how difficult it must be for the Brooklyn Nets to navigate Kyrie Irving's vaccination soap opera, how the Player Empowerment Era has changed the landscape of the NBA, the work he's doing now to help minority-owned small businesses, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into the Brooklyn Nets' decision to keep Kyrie Irving away from the team as he refuses to adhere to vaccine mandate ordinances in New York. The Nets are trying to build a culture, and they decided they don't want a part-time player. Kudos to Brooklyn for realizing that it's better to be without Kyrie altogether than to essentially force themselves to have 2 fundamentally different approaches to the season if they had kept him. What's more, Kyrie lost all credibility when he leaked to the media that his reason for not getting the jab was because he wanted to be the ‘voice for the voiceless'…. without ever actually putting his name on it. This man continues to confound. Later, NFL Network reporter and podcast host Aditi Kinkhabwala swings by to discuss how they both got started in the sports media world and how it has evolved over the years, why the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers should provide the blueprint for the Pittsburgh Steelers this season, how the Steelers' refusal to address the offensive line has proven to be a massive mistake, why she likes the Buffalo Bills as the best team in the AFC right now, why Jon Gruden's e-mail leak is the probably just the tip of the iceberg and why she expects more details to come to light surrounding the Washington Football Team investigation, why most candidates can't be too choosy when it comes to head coaching vacancies, and much more!  Click here to subscribe, rate and review all of the latest Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre podcasts!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into the Buffalo Bills' beatdown of the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. Josh Allen and the Bills are playing like the best team in football overt the past month, but the big story here is what's going on in Kansas City. The Chiefs defense has been leaky for awhile, but now they have a sloppy offense to go along with it; Kansas City is barely a top-5 team in the AFC right now. Later, Jason goes in on what was easily the game of the day between the Cleveland Browns and the Los Angeles Chargers. The Browns seemed to have the game in-hand until head coach Kevin Stefanski decided to take the ball out of Baker Mayfield's hands altogether down the stretch. Is it fair to say that Mayfield doesn't have the trust of his head coach? On the flip side, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert is playing like at worst the 2nd best quarterback in the NFL. If we were to handicap the MVP race right now, is there anyone you would take ahead of Herbert? Doubt it.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on the Los Angeles Rams' Thursday Night Football victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson had to leave the game early with a finger injury, and if Russ is forced to sit out for any amount of time, the Seahawks' season is essentially over. Sticking in Seattle, is it officially time to declare the Jamal Adams trade a win for the New York Jets? Adams hasn't been able to cover for years, and now that he's no longer rushing the passer, he's just another guy in the defensive backfield. The Adams trade has been a total disaster for Seattle. Meanwhile, in the winning locker room, Matthew Stafford continues to put up big numbers in his first season in Los Angeles. Some detractors have pointed out that his actual on-field play hasn't always matched up with the gaudy stats, but do you know which other quarterback got off to an uneven start with his new team? Tom Brady with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. Just sayin'. Later, FanDuel Director of Trading John Sheeran swings by to discuss how and why FanDuel odds differ from other shops, why sharps are so high on the Arizona Cardinals heading into this week's showdown with the San Francisco 49ers, why the Urban Meyer soap opera doesn't really impact the line at all for the Jacksonville Jaguars, why he thinks Baker Mayfield is a very average quarterback - with or without the shoulder injury, why he actually wants bettors to beat him every now and then, how the public can actually find value betting on bad teams, who he likes in this Sunday's primetime matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on the highly-anticipated showdown between Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Bill Belichick's New England Patriots. As we predicted last week, this one absolutely did not live up to the hype. It was sloppy and uneventful for most of the night, save for a questionable field goal try by Belichick late that ultimately cost the Patriots the chance at a victory. Producer Rob G thinks Belichick's ego may have gotten the best of him in the moment, but we'll never know for sure. Later, Jason explains why Kyler Murray has to be considered the NFL MVP frontrunner at the quarter pole of the season after he powered the Arizona Cardinals to a shellacking of the Rams in Los Angeles. In fact, you could even argue that the Cardinals are the best team in football at the moment. Speaking of mobile quarterbacks, have you noticed that Lamar Jackson is suddenly winning games from the pocket? The Baltimore Ravens have won 3 in a row, and should be able to keep the momentum going in Week 5 against the Colts. On the flip side, Ben Roethlisberger and Jimmy Garoppolo both appear to be on their last legs in their respective towns. Big Ben is clearly washed, and Jimmy G is hurt again. The only positive you can take from this is at least the San Francisco 49ers have a succession plan in place.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by taking Urban Meyer and the Jaguars to task following their loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. After jumping out to an early lead and making a super aggressive decision to end the first half (which ultimately backfired), Meyer got tight at the end of the game and basically handed the victory to Joe Burrow and the Bengals. On the bright side, Trevor Lawrence looked exactly like you'd hope a #1 overall pick would; He just got outplayed by Burrow. No shame in that. Later, Producer Rob G joins the show to help Jason preview Sunday Night's showdown between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. While most of the sports media world continues to hype this game like it's the Super Bowl, the guys both agree it might barely crack the top 5 of the Sunday slate. Are we certain that Brady and Belichick are actually rivals? Are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots evenly matched squads? If your answer to both is no, then it's hard to justify all this hype. Finally, Jason closes the show with a very special NFL and college football weekend edition of the Best Bet.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into the Green Bay Packers thrilling Sunday night victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Aaron Rodgers did what Rodgers does, but the real story to come of this game was the play of the much-maligned Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard to kill Jimmy G considering he put the 49ers in position to win the game with :37 left, but it's also hard to praise him considering he was just okay most of the night. Jimmy G isn't going to make you great, but he's definitely good enough to win. The only question at this point is who he'll be playing for next year because it darn sure won't be San Francisco (Maybe Pittsburgh or Miami?). Sticking in the NFC West, Matthew Stafford has absolutely unlocked the Sean McVay offense for the Los Angeles Rams. Jason tried to tell you when the Stafford trade went down that it made the Rams the Super Bowl favorites, and after the way they handled Tom Brady and the Buccaneers on Sunday, it's hard not to feel the same way today. Not to be outdone, Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers put the rest of the League on notice when they beat the Chiefs on Sunday. Herbert is arguably the most talented young quarterback in football outside of Patrick Mahomes, and he should be in the NFL MVP race this year and for years to come.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the Carolina Panthers' Thursday Night Football victory over the Houston Texans. Carolina got the win to move to 3-0, but lost superstar running back Christian McCaffrey to a hamstring injury in the process. With CMC down, Sam Darnold and the Panthers could see that perfect record evaporate pretty quickly. Later, Producer Rob G joins the show to help make sense of the wild Ben Simmons-for-Kyrie Irving rumor that hit the news cycle earlier this week. Jason is convinced that the idea was floated out by a competing network in hopes of juicing their ratings, but is it possible that it could have had something to do with Kyrie's reported aversion to the COVID-19 vaccine? Either way, it's highly unlikely that Kyrie get moved at all, but it is a situation that needs to be monitored.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kicks things off with by sharing their thoughts on the thrilling showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night. Lamar Jackson put up an all-time great performance, and he closed the game by converting one of the ballsiest 4th-and-1 calls you'll ever see. Even still, it's hard not come away from the game even more impressed by Patrick Mahomes. In a loss, Mahomes reminded the rest of the football world that it's probably going to take an otherworldly performance from his counterpart just to compete with him on an 'average' night. Mahomes vs. Jackson isn't a rivalry, it never has been. Later, the guys explain why the latest injury to Miami Dolphins franchise quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is just another sign that Miami needs to try and swing a trade for Deshaun Watson. If Miami thinks they have any legitimate shot of making a run in the AFC then they're going to need a quarterback who can compete with guys like Mahomes and Jackson. Plus, Rob G takes a verbal victory lap as his beloved Las Vegas Raiders improved to 2-0 on the young season. Say what you want about the Raiders season-long outlook, but right now, Derek Carr has the look of a darkhorse MVP candidate. Finally, Jason closes the show by admitting that his preseason pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars to win the AFC South may have been a little premature.

In the last week, they've lost right tackle La'el Collins, wide receiver Michael Gallup, and pass rushers Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence. I don't know what they did to bring this bad juju on themselves but let's hope it wears off fast. Either way, so long as Dak Prescott remains upright, the Cowboys should still win the division. Moreover, it wasn't clear already, Urban Meyer publicly proclaimed that he will not be taking over as the next head football coach at USC. It really isn't all that shocking; Urban just isn't a fit for Southern California. Now that it's all out in the open, the Trojans can pivot and find themselves a real candidate.

On today's episode, Jason does a deep dive into all the biggest headlines to come out of Sunday's NFL action. If there's one thing we learned over the weekend, it's that negativity sells in sports media... and nobody had a worse weekend than Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. You can't spend your entire offseason engaged in a power struggle with the front office only to lay an egg in Week 1, Aaron. Thankfully for the Packers they should be able to 'get right' against the Detroit Lions next week, but their next games on the schedule are against the San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers; Don't be surprised to see Green Bay starts the season 1-3. On the flip side, Matthew Stafford lit up the scoreboard in his debut performance as the Los Angeles Rams' quarterback. Stafford brings an entirely new dimension to what was already a fantastic team. If you haven't already made your Rams Super Bow futures bet, you better get on it. Later, Jason and Producer Rob G get into a little debate about the long-term outlook of the Cleveland Browns. Did their close loss to the Kansas City Chiefs prove that they're a legitimate Super Bowl contender? Or, does the way they melted down in the 4th quarter prove that Baker Mayfield isn't quite ready to go toe-to-toe with the elite quarterbacks in the League?

Dak Prescott and the Cowboys offense marched up and down the field all night but were unable to capitalize on the Buccaneers turnovers and went just 1-for-4 in the red zone. Even worse, the Dallas defense was as porous as ever. On the flip side, Tom Brady continues to defy Father Time as he absolutely carved up the Cowboys. Were it not for all the turnovers, Brady may have hung up a 50 burger. The scary part about all this is the Bucs probably played a C-level game and they still never really looked like they were in danger of losing.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few quick thoughts on a handful of stories boiling over around the NFL. The Indianapolis Colts are still getting battered by the injury bug along the offensive line, and that's precisely why it's not wise to bet big on Carson Wentz on the boys this season. Sticking in the AFC, Mac Jones continues to impress in New England. If this was really a legitimate quarterback competition like we've been led to believe then Jones should beat out Cam Newton for the starting gig. The biggest story to hit the NFL, though, involves Deshaun Watson and his future with the Houston Texans. According to reports, the Miami Dolphins are now considered the frontrunners for Watson. While most Dolphins fans must be jumping for joy at the thought of Watson moving to Miami, one guy who can't be feeling good right now is Tua Tagovailoa. Later, Jason goes deep on a fantasy football snafu that he got caught in over the weekend. Without spoiling the story too much, let's just say that there's a reason why most players aren't big fans of auction drafts.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into the latest news surrounding the NFL's COVID-19 protocols. Like it or not, COVID has hit the sports world hard again all the way from the NFL down to the youth sports level. With guys like Josh Allen and Cole Beasley leading the way, the Buffalo Bills have decided that they're going to continue to stress the 'personal choice' mantra within their locker room. Unfortunately, that attitude has led to a handful of players being forced to miss time and a couple to get hit with fines. On the other hand, Bruce Arians, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have decided that they're going to abide by an even stricter set of protocols to try and ensure that nothing - not even COVID - can prevent them from repeating as Super Bowl champions. Moreover, COVID protocols could be precisely what opened the door for Mac Jones to unseat Cam Newton as the New England Patriots starting quarterback. That said, if Newton were to get beat out, would the Pats be willing to keep him around as the backup? Is any quarterback who has had Newton's level of NFL success capable of playing a backup role? History would tell us no. Finally, the guys close the show with a quick preview of Week 0 in college football, and explain why this could be a make-or-break year for Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins.

Later, the Ringer NFL writer Kevin Clark swings by to discuss which NFL coaches could be on the hot seat this season, why he's skeptical about Kliff Kingsbury and the Arizona Cardinals' ability to get over the hump, if things are as copacetic between Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll as they'd like us to believe they are, how Jimmy Garoppolo could impact the 2022 NFL Draft quarterback market, why he likes Dan Campbell's fit as the head coach of the Detroit Lions, why he's not optimistic about Jon Gruden and the Las Vegas Raiders right now, the biggest challenge facing Urban Meyer as he transitions from the college game to the NFL, why you shouldn't read too much into Zach Wilson's training camp struggles, how Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert compared as prospects coming out of college and why so many teams passed on them in their respective NFL Drafts, why he doesn't play fantasy football, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the New England Patriots' preseason bludgeoning of the Philadelphia Eagles. Both Cam Newton and Mac Jones played fairly well in the contest, and it's looking like Bill Belichick is going to have a tough time choosing his Week 1 starter. On the flip side, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts was pulled minutes before kickoff with a mysterious stomach ailment. Let's just hope we don't have another Tyrod Taylor-type situation on our hands. Later, The Athletic NFL reporter Sheil Kapadia swings by to discuss his rise up the ranks in sports media world, why he expects this to be a one-off season for Jalen Hurts and for the Philadelphia Eagles to target a new quarterback next offseason, the injury bug that has hit the New York Jets even before the season has officially started, why he believes the Tennessee Titans could take a step back even with the addition of Julio Jones, why NFL teams still haven't fully embraced analytics and why it's so important for the front office and the coaching staff to be in lock step in that regard, why he doesn't share Jason's optimism about the New York Giants, why he has Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers as a dark horse Super Bowl contender, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on the report that the FBI is investigating Deshaun Watson over his alleged sexual misconduct towards over 20 massage therapists. If the victims' attorney is to be believed, Watson could soon be facing human trafficking charges. If it wasn't clear already, it should be now: Watson's trade demand from the Houston Texans is the least of his problems. Later, Jason does a deep dive into Tim Tebow's release from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tebow was always a long shot to make the final 53-man roster, even with Urban Meyer in his corner. And yet, so many in the media took his release as yet another opportunity to dance on his proverbial grave. But if you take a step back, you'll see that Tebow is still a winner in all of this. If you would've told a teenage Tebow that he'd win the Heisman trophy and two national championships in college, get drafted in the first round and win an NFL playoff game and eventually play professional baseball, you don't think he'd consider himself a success story? In many ways, his 'failure' was actually a blessing in disguise. Finally, Jason shares a quick thought on the Sacramento Kings' NBA Summer League championship. The win doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot in the grand scheme of things, but it did showcase Davion Mitchell's defensive prowess. With Mitchell and second-year guard Tyrese Haliburton in the fold, is it possible we could see a De'Aaron Fox-for-Ben Simmons trade to balance out the roster?

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into Week 1 of the NFL preseason. Let's just say it was a bad weekend for veteran quarterbacks. Andy Dalton, Cam Newton and even Teddy Bridgewater had to walk into the facilities shaking their heads on Monday morning after Justin Fields, Mac Jones and Drew Lock lit it up in Week 1. Heck, if the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars had veteran quarterbacks to speak of, they'd be shaking in their boots as well given what we saw from Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson. On the flip side, quarterback-turned-tight end Tim Tebow had a tough go of it during his first game action at the new position. Tebow had zero catches and still went viral after he completely whiffed on a blocking assignment. Luckily for him, he has Urban Meyer in his corner so his spot on the roster should still be relatively safe. Later, Producer Rob G joins the show to help make sense of the Eric Bledsoe-for-Patrick Beverly (and Rajon Rondo) trade by the Los Angeles Clippers. Turns out all those ‘dawgs' that made the Cilps such a tough out a few years back were no match for Kawhi Leonard's ‘snake' tendencies. More importantly, Jason argues that this roster purge puts the Clippers in danger of missing the playoffs next season.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into Kevin Durant's case as the Best Player in the World coming off his virtuoso performance against Australia in the Olympics. This isn't a new discussion by any means but it is worth talking about given that everybody seems to have a different criteria when defining the Best Player in the World. Does he have to be a guy that you can drop on a team of scrubs and instantly make them contenders? If so, Luka Doncic and LeBron James probably have a better case than Durant. Does he have to have won a championship? KD has two, but people still rip him for the way he got them. Is it something that is generally decided by your peers? If that's the case, then the way all his Olympics teammates deferred to him against Australia should make KD a lock. Later, the guys take Charles Barkley to task for suggesting that LeBron James should be eliminated from the GOAT conversation because he's always played on stacked teams. This is such an odd thing to say considering Barkley himself forced his way to Super Teams twice (Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets) after starting his career playing alongside multiple Hall of Famers. Talk about a hypocrite. What's more, Barkley decided that Michael Jordan should be held in higher regard than LeBron because he had to struggle in Chicago before finally breaking through and winning his rings… while conveniently leaving out the fact that by the time MJ starting winning, his Chicago Bulls were the Super Team of that era.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the USMNT's victory over Mexico in the Gold Cup final. The Summer of Soccer has been fantastic on all fronts, so it was fitting that the Gold Cup ended in dramatic fashion. And if you watched the match on FS1, you saw that that buzz for soccer is building considerably here in the USA. Later, Jason explains why he's not too high on the impending sign-and-trade that will be sending Kyle Lowry to the Miami Heat. At 35 years old, Lowry is still a very good player, but he's not good enough to help Miami overtake the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference. On the positive side, with the Lowry domino falling, we should see the point guard market (Lonzo Ball, Dennis Schroder, Spencer Dinwiddie, etc.) heat up in a big way very quickly once the free agency period officially opens on Monday night. Finally, Football Outsiders' NFL analyst Aaron Schatz swings by to discuss why he expects the Minnesota Vikings to give the Green Bay Packers a run for their money in the NFC North, the notion that the New Orleans Saints are due for a 2020 Patriots-esque fall this season, the ugly truth behind the Los Angeles Rams' top-heavy roster, why he believes the Dallas Cowboys are a sneaky pick to make the Super Bowl, why the numbers don't always jive with what he actually believes (ie. the Baltimore Ravens being better than the Kansas City Chiefs), why it's more likely that Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers take a step back than they take a massive step forward, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into the Simone Biles situation that took place this week at the Olympics. Say what you want about her mental health an anxiety, but in a word, Biles quit. Period. But that doesn't mean it has to hold a negative connotation or disqualify her from any larger conversation about her place in gymnastics history. There's no perfect comparison for Biles in sports history but one that comes close is Robert Duran's famous ‘No Mas' fight against Sugar Ray Leonard. At the time, Duran was widely criticized for throwing in the towel. But years later, Mike Tyson said he admired the courage it took for Duran to recognize he didn't have it and quit. The same logic can be applied to Biles. Moreover, anybody who thinks that Biles can no longer be considered the GOAT of women's gymnastics because of this is asinine. Should LeBron James be eliminated from basketball GOAT consideration because he melted down in the 2011 NBA Finals? Of course not. Later, Jason shares a few thoughts on Aaron Rodgers' ‘senatorial' address to the media detailing everything that's gone wrong with the Packers organization for the past few years; Rodgers gave the organization a verbal spanking for the world to see. Maybe next time the Packers - or any other NFL franchise - will take their superstar's feelings and thoughts into consideration the next time they decide to make wholesale changes. That's not to say that NFL teams should bow down to their stars, but they'd be foolish not to at least consult them from time to time. Finally, Jason closes the show with a quick note on Quinn Ewers' decision to forego his senior year of high school so he can immediately capitalize on his Name Image and Likeness at Ohio State.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the NFL's new COVID-19 vaccination protocols. The NFL isn't mandating that every player get vaccinated, but the protocols are written in such a way that it would behoove you to do so. If guys like DeAndre Hopkins would rather retire altogether than get the jab, then that's their prerogative. Nobody can force you to do anything that you're not comfortable doing.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into Giannis Antetokounmpo's assertion that he did things the 'hard' way by staying in Milwaukee rather than joining a Super Team. We love Giannis, but he's dead wrong on this one. Staying in your comfort zone in a city where you are adored is easy; Joining a Super Team and accepting the ridicule and pressure that comes along with it is hard. Not everybody can handle the instant hatred and constant scrutiny that comes along when you take your career into your own hands and leave to greener pastures. Do you remember what LeBron James had to go through when he left the Cavaliers and took his talents to South Beach? Did you forget how quickly Kevin Durant became the most hated man in the NBA when he jumped ship to the Warriors? It's part of the reason why guys like Damian Lillard and Bradley Beal have yet to publicly demand a trade out of their respective towns. Later, Jason shares a quick thought on Oklahoma and Texas' plan to leave the Big-12 and join the SEC. We're not expecting it to happen, but the fact that they're trying to do it shouldn't come as a surprise. We saw something similar happen in European soccer a few months ago. If there's money to be made, these sports entities will do everything they can to make it happen.

With this podcast in full swing and his role expanding at FOXSports.com, it just wouldn't have been fair to the fans to continue putting together a show that was clearly lower on the list of priorities. Next, Jason takes a quick verbal victory lap following Conor McGregor's first round loss to Dustin Poirier on Saturday night. We tried to tell you: Conor is WASHED. Even before his leg broke it was clear that he was headed towards another loss. Later, Jason does a deep dive on the epic climax to the Summer of Soccer that he's been pumping up for weeks. Messi powered Argentina to the Copa America championship and thus cemented his status as one the greatest to ever do it, but the bigger story was the England choke in their Euro 2020 championship loss to Italy. What were they thinking throwing their young guns out there so late in the game? They never really got a chance to settle into the action so it's no surprise that nerves got the better of them in penalty kicks. Finally, Jason does a deep dive into the Milwaukee Bucks' blowout victory over the Phoenix Suns in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. We tried to tell you last week that the Bucks were a lock to win this one. Giannis Antetokounmpo has been beasting on the inside all series, and with the home crowd giving Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday the boost they needed, Milwaukee is suddenly back in this series.

Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Mikal Bridges were sensational, but the Suns lost yet another key bench contributor to injury and almost gave the game away late. With Giannis Antetokounmpo rounding back into form following that gruesome leg injury last week, if the Bucks can get anything on the offensive end from Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday, they should be able to get at least one win back in Milwaukee.

A private conversation between Nichols and an associate was secretly recorded and leaked to other media outlets.

Devin Booker and Chris Paul should be able to feast against Milwaukee's defensive coverage, and with Giannis Antetokounmpo's availability in question it's hard to envision the Bucks mustering enough offense to keep up.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G share their thoughts on the Milwaukee Bucks' blowout victory over the Atlanta Hawks in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final. Unfortunately, without Giannis Antetokounmpo and Trae Young on the floor, the game looked more like a preseason game than a playoff game. Nobody is tuning in to watch Khris Middleton and John Collins; The NBA is a star-driven league and this series is devoid of stars at the moment. If neither guy comes back by the NBA Finals, the League could be in a big trouble on the ratings front.

When the idea was first presented years ago, many expected that it would be the high-profile basketball and football players raking in the dough, but after Day 1, we're seeing that even kickers can cash in. Moreover, with social media being such a driving force in all of this, it's clear that female athletes could end up making more money than the males.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on Giannis Antetokounmpo's unfortunate knee injury. If he's limited for the rest of the series - or out altogether - then we should be probably expect to see the Atlanta Hawks in the NBA Finals. Then again, the way the NBA playoffs have shaken out thus far, would anyone be all that shocked to see the shorthanded Milwaukee Bucks close things out without the Greek Freak? The Los Angeles Clippers actually have a winning record in the postseason against the two teams in the Western Conference without Kawhi Leonard. Either way, let's just hope Giannis' MRI comes back clean. The last thing the NBA needs right now is another superstar missing time due to injury. Later, #NBATwitter icon Cuffs The Legend swings by to discuss why he's rooting for Paul George during these playoffs and is hopeful that he'll be able to live up to the 'Playoff P' nickname, why he's been so impressed by the job Los Angeles Clippers head coach Ty Lue during this postseason, why he'd be willing to sacrifice a family member to get Damian Lillard to the Los Angeles Lakers, why he wouldn't be surprised to see big names like CJ McCollum, Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal and Ben Simmons change teams in the very near future, why he envisions Zion Williamson playing for the New York Knicks at some point during his NBA career, and much more!

On today's episode, Producers Rob G and Gavin share their thoughts on the Los Angeles Clippers impressive victory over the Phoenix Suns in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Apparently, the ‘0-2 Clippers' are the greatest team in NBA history. For the third consecutive series, the Paper Clips boys fell into an 0-2 hole only to come back and stomp out their competition in Game 3. Patrick Beverley has put Devin Booker in a straitjacket the past two games, Paul George and Reggie Jackson have carried the load offensively, and Ty Lue continues to make great game-to-game adjustments. Later, Rob G does a deep dive into separate reports involving the futures of Ben Simmons in Philadelphia and Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn, respectively. Would a Simmons-for-Kyrie actually make sense for all parties involved? At least one person thinks so. Finally, Gavin closes the show with the Friday edition of the Best Bet.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by taking a small victory lap following the Milwaukee Bucks' blowout victory over the Brooklyn Nets to force a Game 7. He tried to warn us that Kevin Durant would be unable to put together another Herculean effort on such short rest and that the Bucks were the pick not only to win Game 6 but to win the series outright. If Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton can keep up the solid play, Jason may be proven right. Later, Producer Rob G joins the show to help discuss the turmoil surrounding the Dallas Mavericks now that both general manager Donnie Nelson and head coach Rick Carlisle have been let go in the past few days. On the surface, you'd think that getting the opportunity to coach the best young player in the game in Luka Doncic would be a dream job for any coach. But, dig a little deeper and you'll see that the front office is in turmoil, owner Mark Cuban is very hands-on and Luka just might wield more power over his team than anyone this side of LeBron James. Good luck to any coach who thinks they can thread that needle. Finally, Meadowlark Media NBA analyst Tom Haberstroh swings by to discuss the uncertainty surrounding Zion Williamson and his future with the New Orleans Pelicans, why he would caution Zion about looking to bolt for greener pastures so quickly, why it's important to remember that Daryl Morey isn't the one who hired Doc Rivers as the Philadelphia 76ers head coach and may not necessarily feel obligated to keep him long-term, why he still thinks there are a ton of teams who would have interest in trading for Ben Simmons if he were to become available, why he believes Bradley Beal has the potential to become the second-coming of James Harden on the offensive end, why he isn't surprised that the Paul George-led Los Angeles Clippers are up 3-2 over the Utah Jazz even without Kawhi Leonard, why he believes Luka will be the one to take over for LeBron as the Face of the NBA, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by sharing his thoughts on the Philadelphia 76ers blowing a 20+ point second half lead to the Atlanta Hawks in Game 5. The whole thing sounds shocking on its face until you realize that stuff like this has become par for the course for Doc Rivers-led teams. Joel Embiid did everything he could to carry the team to victory on that bum knee of his, but Tobias Harris was a no-show and Ben Simmons was predictably underwhelming. Whether the Sixers lose this series or not, all signs point to Simmons getting shipped out of town this offseason. Doc Rivers' shortcomings as a coach became even more jarring when you consider that his successor in Los Angeles, Ty Lue, was able to push all the right buttons for the Kawhi Leonard-less Clippers in the nightcap. It also helped that ‘Playoff P' Paul George showed up and showed out in a big way to put the Utah Jazz on the brink of elimination. These NBA Playoffs have been so unpredictable night-to-night that you can make a legitimate argument for each of the seven remaining teams to win the title. Later, Bleacher Report NBA writer and author of 'Built to Lose: How the NBA's Tanking Era Changed the League Forever' Jake Fischer swings by to discuss why some teams struggle with having to bend over backwards for star players have they spent years tanking just to get them, the future of the next wave of allegedly disgruntled stars Karl-Anthony Towns and Bradley Beal, how the Los Angeles Lakers blew a chance to build a Big 3 of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony a few years back, why he agrees that more people need to hold New Orleans Pelicans EVP David Griffin accountable for the way he's mismanaged the start of Zion Williamson's career, what went wrong behind the scenes between DeMarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings a few years ago, on if the The Process in Philadelphia should be considered a success, and much more!

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 Utah Jazz' come-from-behind victory over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1. Utah couldn't hit the red side of a barn early which caused them to fall behind by double digits, but in typical Clippers fashion, Kawhi Leonard and the boys faded late and the Jazz were able to steal the win. Adding insult to injury, everyone saw Kawhi, Paul George and Marcus Morris shrink from the moment on the game's final possession with a chance to send the game into overtime; Absolutely no one on the Clippers roster wanted to take that last shot. It was a game the Clips should have won, and this one could come back to haunt them later in the series. On the flip side, Donovan Mitchell was fantastic for the Jazz. If it wasn't clear before it definitely is now: Utah has a superstar in their backcourt. Later, the guys share their thoughts on the NBA MVP voting - which Nikola Jokic won in a landslide, as expected - and discuss what it all means in the grand scheme of things. On one hand, Steph Curry finishing with the second-most first place votes tells you how much the media respected what he did this past season carrying a depleted Golden State Warriors roster to the play-in tournament. On the other, the fact that guys like Rudy Gobert, Russell Westbrook and Derrick Rose (fan vote) got votes also says that some of these voters need to stop playing favorites. Finally, Jason and Rob G close the show with a deep dive into the Kevin Durant-Jay Williams fiasco that played out in the media. Look, in all honesty, we're willing to bet that KD said exactly what Williams reported on TV that he said about Giannis... but does that necessarily give Williams the right to go public with it? All the same, it's great to see KD ditch the burner accounts and go scorched earth on anyone in the media who he feels has wronged him. In a world where guys like LeBron James prefer to use passive aggressive memes to get their points across, it's refreshing to see someone like Durant say exactly what he feels.

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G vent their frustrations following the Phoenix Suns dismantling of the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 5. The game wasn't even close after the first quarter as the Lakers were down 30 points at halftime. Both guys expected that the Suns would win given that Los Angeles was without Anthony Davis, but neither expected a blowout like this. LeBron James, who many expected would 'turn back the clock' with AD down, turned in such a mediocre performance that it led Jason and Rob G to debate whether or not he still has a case for being the Best Player in the World anymore. Would Kevin Durant have allowed his team to fall behind by 30 in the first half of arguably the biggest game of the year? How about James Harden? Would Kawhi Leonard? Or Giannis? On the flip side, Devin Booker lit up the Lake Show for 18 points in the opening period, and it led to a fascinating conversation between the guys about where he ranks among the top shooting guards in the NBA. After James Harden, a case can definitely be made for Booker being the best at his position. Later, the guys discuss what the long-term plans for the Lakers could be given that LeBron is aging, the role players have regressed and Dennis Schroder is looking for a big payday. Do they need a complete overhaul? How much pressure is on GM Rob Pelinka to maximize LeBron's final years? By the way, shout out to Damian Lillard for dropping a double-nickel in a Game 5 loss for the Portland Trail Blazers. Wish we had more time to give you the proper kudos.

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by sharing his thoughts on Jayson Tatum's 50-point performance in the Boston Celtics' play-in victory over the Washington Wizards. Tatum has a ton of Kobe Bryant to his game, and given what we've seen from him in the postseason the past few years, it's hard to make a case as him being anything lower than the third best player in the NBA right now under the age of 30. He's that good. With Tatum running the show, don't be surprised to see the Celtics put a scare in the Brooklyn Nets in round 1. Later, Jason does a quick breakdown of the rest of the playoff field and explains why he likes the Portland Trail Blazers to upset presumptive MVP Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets in round 1. Finally, Locked on Lakers podcast host Andy Kamenetzky swings by to discuss his time covering Kwame Brown in Los Angeles and his overall reaction to Kwame's recent string of social media videos, how concerned Lakers fans should be about LeBron James' ankle injury, why he wouldn't be surprised to see Anthony Davis play most of the play-in game against the Golden State Warriors if he has to, how the Lakers have been able to mostly corral Steph Curry in their 3 regular season meetings this year, why he doesn't view the Utah Jazz or the Phoenix Suns as 'scary' at all given how poorly each team matches up with LeBron and Anthony Davis, the notion that the Los Angeles Clippers tanked to avoid the Lakers early in the postseason and if could actually work out for them, why some Lakers fans are still mad about the team trading away Eddie Jones so they could eventually acquire Kobe Bryant, and much more!

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the James Harden now being out indefinitely after suffering a setback in rehab for his hamstring injury. It's looking more and more likely that we won't see the Brooklyn Nets Big 3 together again until the playoffs. If they're all back by the second round, would that be enough time for them to gel and make a run at a championship? Heck, without Harden, are we sure that the Nets even get out of the first round if they ending facing the Miami Heat? Later, Warren Sharp from Sharp Football Analysis swings by to discuss how a focus on analytics helped him get his foot in the NFL media door, how he's able to navigate smokescreens leading up to the NFL Draft and why it's so important to identify reporters with a history of correct prognostications, why some around the league believe that 2022 Draft capital is more valuable than 2021 Draft capital, why he values Florida TE Kyle Pitts higher than any wide receiver available in the NFL Draft, why he's betting on Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle going ahead of his more heralded teammate Devonta Smith, why he's skeptical that Mac Jones would be worth all the draft capital that the San Francisco 49ers spent to move up to #3, and much more!
