Buckle up, Packers fans, we've just reached DEFCON-2. Later, Washington Post NBA writer Ben Golliver swings by to discuss new book 'Bubbleball' and what life was like inside the NBA's Orlando Bubble, why you absolutely cannot put an asterisk next to the Los Angeles Lakers' 2020 championship, why he wasn't surprised to see the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers implode in Orlando, why he still doesn't trust the Clippers heading into these playoffs, why Nikola Jokic playing like the best player in the League makes the Denver Nuggets the one team in the West you'd least like to face, how the pandemic impacted the 2021 free agency class, why he expects the Portland Trail Blazers to try to re-shape their roster around Damian Lillard in the offseason, why the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets is the playoff series he most wants to see, and much more!

As the author of the upcoming book Bubbleball, Golliver shares rare details about the Disney property, including where those inside it are allowed to go, how isolating it really feels, what security is like, the activities that are available to the players, and the only thing he's spent money on in the last few months.
