On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the Milwaukee Bucks win over the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets really wanted to win this one (Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving both played about 40 minutes) but for the second game in a row Brooklyn had no answer for Giannis Antetokounmpo. Will the return of James Harden suddenly solve the flaws that the Bucks exposed? Doubt it. Later, Jason explains why the recent play by the Washington Wizards and Minnesota Timberwolves could mean that both Bradley Beal and Karl-Anthony Towns stay put this summer. So if Beal and KAT are off the board, who are the next big names that could be on the move? Keep an eye on Damian Lillard and Kawhi Leonard. Just sayin'. Plus, ESPN senior NFL reporter Jeremy Fowler swings by to discuss why he feels like the only way this Aaron Rodgers saga gets resolved in Green Bay is if the Packers give him a massive new contract, how much of a role Packers CEO Mark Murphy has had both in the drafting of Jordan Love and the empowerment of GM Brian Gutekunst, how Rodgers' retirement threat differs from the Andrew Luck situation in Indianapolis a few years ago, why historically great quarterbacks - like Joe Montana, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady - tend to end their careers in different uniforms, why he's optimistic about Urban Meyer's transition to the NFL, what went wrong for Johnny Manziel in Cleveland back in the day, why a small majority of NFL decision makers had BYU's Zach Wilson ranked ahead of Clemson's Trevor Lawrence before the Draft, and much more!
