On today’s episode, Jason shares his takeaways from the Heat beating the Celtics in Game 1 of the ECF. Jimmy Butler gave Jayson Tatum and the C’s the business. Boston’s prodigal son, Grant Williams, couldn’t replicate his game 7 performance and returned to earth as the Heat took off during the 3rd quarter. Tatum kept turning the ball over with Miami’s defense just hounding his squad, but Jason can’t bash Tatum because his team was ...

On today’s episode, Jason McIntyre discusses a story about Suns center Deandre Ayton detailing his inability to live without video games. While Jason talks about his own affinity for video games, Ayton spending a lot of his free time in the virtual gaming sphere is a much different story. Ayton asked the Suns to deliver on his request of a multimillion dollar deal last summer, but if you’re an organization having to question his wo...

On today’s episode, Jason kicks things off by recapping the Boston Celtics dismantling the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 7 which turned out to be the Grant Williams show. This Celtics victory leads into another showdown with South Beach’s very own Miami Heat! Jason also shares his take on the Mavericks blowing the Suns out of the water in Phoenix as Luka Doncic continues his tear on the NBA! Dallas came in with the urgency out of the gat...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by throwing verbal haymakers at Joel Embiid, James Harden, Doc Rivers and the Philadelphia 76ers following their season-ending loss to the Miami Heat. This is the second consecutive season where Embiid has come up very small in the final game of the season; the Embiid love affair has to end. Harden's disappointing play, on the other hand, is pretty much expected these days. He'...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by heaping a ton of verbal praise on Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday and the Milwaukee Bucks following their comeback victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 5. Champions find ways to get the job done, and the Bucks definitely showed their championship mettle with their fourth quarter closing kick - particularly in the final :45 seconds of the game. Jayson Tatum and the Celtics are...

On today's show, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on what turned out to be a very underwhelming Tuesday night in the NBA. We were all looking forward to a pair of dynamite Game 5's but instead got treated to blockout victories by the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat, respectively. History tells us that whoever wins Game 5 after being tied 2-2 goes on to win the series 82% of the time, so all signs point to the Suns and...

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 alwa...

On today's episode, Jason opens things up with a few thoughts on how the Dallas Mavericks were able to even their series at 2-2 against the Phoenix Suns. Aside from the schematic adjustments, the biggest change over the last two games has been the disappointing play of Chris Paul; Since the series shifted to Dallas, CP3 has been absolutely brutal on the court. Things even boiled over off the court as Paul's mother and wife ...

On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by explaining why Kyrie Irving saying that he 'revolutionized' the game and deserved to be on the NBA75 is blasphemous. Not only is he not one of the top 75 players in NBA history, but it almost feels like he's trying to take attention away from the NBA Playoffs. Typical Kyrie, if you ask me. Later, J-Mac shares his thoughts on the reports that Phil Mickelson lost ove...

On today's podcast, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on the Phoenix Suns' blowout victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Luka Doncic put up big numbers offensively, but Chris Paul and the Suns absolutely hunted Luka on the defensive end in the second half. CP3 is clearly fed up with all the love Luka has been receiving from the media and it seems through the first two games as though he has a personal vendetta Doncic....

On today’s episode, former NBA assistant coach and basketball analyst Dave Miller swings by for a lengthy conversation with J-Mac. During the interview, Miller discusses what it was like coaching Chris Paul back in the day with the New Orleans Hornets, how he ultimately ended up becoming an NBA assistant coach, what college basketball recruiting was like before NIL legalized players getting ‘perks’ to sign with certain schools, som...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few quick thoughts on DeAndre Hopkins' 6-game suspension for PEDs. While most are ready to jump off the Arizona Cardinals bandwagon, J-Mac says you should double-down and throw even more money down on Cardinals futures bets for the upcoming season. D-Hop is a tremendous player, but unlike last season when he got hurt, the Cardinals have plenty of time to prepare to play with...

On today's episode, Jason starts things off by telling us why the Memphis Grizzlies are already in deep trouble after Game 1 of their series against the Golden State Warriors. 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 ...

On today's episode, Jason brings you wall-to-wall reaction to round one of the NFL Draft where his beloved New York Jets came away as the clear winners of the night. The Jets used their three first round picks to nab Cincinnati cornerback Sauce Gardner, Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson and Florida State edge rusher Jermaine Johnson II; a case can be made that all three of those guys should have gone in the top-10 overall...

On today's episode, Jason has a double-dose of interviews leading up to tonight's 2022 NFL Draft. First up, Florida State defensive end Jermaine Johnson II checks in on behalf of Gillette to discuss how he plans to celebrate on Draft Night, how was able to use a dominant Senior Bowl to vault up draft boards, what skills he thinks he can bring to an NFL franchise, and his NFL Combine experiences. Later, former NFL scout and ...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on Ja Morant's virtuoso performance on Tuesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Morant was the best player on the floor, and he had one of the greatest highlight reel dunks in recent NBA Playoff history; In many ways, Morant's performance was reminiscent of what we saw from Derrick Rose back in 2011... and therein lies the problem. Rose, like Morant...

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, wh...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into what's gone wrong for Kevin Durant since he decided to leave Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors to join forces with Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn. KD was well on his way towards becoming a top-8 player of all-time before the move, and his career has been in a downward spiral ever since. Once the Boston Celtics officially put the Nets out of their misery, Dur...

On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by taking a verbal flamethrower to Nikola Jokic and Karl-Anthony Towns. Jokic appears set to win his second consecutive NBA MVP award, and yet his Denver Nuggets are about to get swept out of the postseason by Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Through the first week of the NBA Playoffs, it's become painfully obvious that Jokic isn't the top-5 NBA player that anal...

On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by sharing his thoughts on the Boston Celtics' impressive come-from-behind victory over the Brooklyn Nets to take a 2-0 series lead. Kevin Durant had arguably the worst playoff game of his NBA career, and it's got our fearless leader wondering aloud whether or not this is the beginning of the end for KD. Either way, it's hard to envision the Nets winning 4 of the next...

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
