On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G make their definitive All-NBA selections for the 2021 season. The NBA threw a monkey wrench into the whole thing by allowing several players to be listed at multiple positions, including: Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic and Paul George. What's more, with so many superstars missing large chunks of the season - LeBron James, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Anthony...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the latest in the Aaron Rodgers soap opera going down in Green Bay. Rodgers comparing their general manager to infamous Chicago Bulls GM Jerry Krause isn't that big of a deal, but it does give some insight into how upset Rodgers is. Buckle up, Packers fans, we've just reached DEFCON-2. Later, Washington Post NBA writer Ben Golliver swings by to discuss n...

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 ...

On today’s episode, Jason and Producer Rob G share a lengthy conversation following the Los Angeles Lakers much-needed victory over the Denver Nuggets. While most of the sports media world was prepared to bury the Lakers following their latest swoon, Jason is here to remind you all to take a cue from Aaron Rodgers and just ‘Relax’. They’re going to be fine. So long as LeBron James and Anthony Davis are healthy, they should be right...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G have a lengthy conversation about Aaron Rodgers' future in Green Bay following a report that he has issued an 'It's either him or me' ultimatum to the front office regarding general Brian Gutekunst. If it was really that simple, the clear and obvious answer would be to axe the GM. Gutekunst has been mostly terrible running the show for the Packers over the last 3 seas...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into the report that sent shockwaves through the sports media world: Aaron Rodgers wants out of Green Bay. The Packers had to have seen this coming the moment they drafted Jordan Love in the first round last year. If the plan was always to move on from Rodgers in 2022 - which seems to be the case given that the team refused to sign him to a contract e...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by locking back at his way-too-early 2021 NFL Mock Draft from last year. There will be a lot of guys taken tonight that Jason had on his Big Board a year ago, but the more interesting story is the guys who seem to have fallen off. Plus, Jason explains why the Denver Broncos decision to trade for Teddy Bridgewater could have major implications on the quarterback draft order. Does this o...

NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero swings by to discuss why some NFL coaches are comparing Mac Jones' scouting tape to Joe Burrow's, why intangibles are what's really pushing Trey Lance up draft boards, the difference between processing and intelligence - and what it means for Jones and Justin Fields, how Josh Allen's NFL development could help boost someone's draft stock, why fit is in many ways more important ...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G discuss Chris Paul's All-NBA First Team candidacy on the heels of his virtuoso performance on Monday night to halt the New York Knicks 9-game winning streak. CP3 has been a very good player for a very long-time with a history of impacting winning. You could argue that he's on-par with great point guards of the past like John Stockton and Jason Kidd. However, what keeps from g...

On today's episode, Jason shares his thoughts on the NFL Network report suggesting that the San Francisco 49ers have narrowed down their choices at #3 to Mac Jones or Trey Lance. Neither quarterback has much experience at the college level, and scouts are skeptical about how each will transition to the NFL. Jones was the triggerman for a stacked roster at Alabama while Lance beat up on inferior competition. Enter the 'arrog...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on Anthony Davis' return to the court after missing 30 games due to injury. AD looked very rusty shooting just 2-for-10 from the field, but it was nice just to see him out there again. The biggest story of the night, however, is a somber one. Kentucky's Terrence Clarke died in a car accident while preparing for the NBA Draft in Los Angeles. He was just 19 y...

On today's episode, former NFL scout and author Daniel Kelly joins Jason for an extension conversation heading into next week's NFL Draft. In the interview, Kelly explains why he thinks Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has high bust potential and why Lawrence's comments to Sports Illustrated last week were a big red flag, why Alabama quarterback Mac Jones reminds him a bit of Joe Namath and why he could see the New E...

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 Harde...

On today's episode, Jason dives deep into the unreal season that Steph Curry is putting together. The Chef dropped 49 points against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, including a signature 'Curry Flurry' in the 4th to help put the game away. He's been on absolute tear in the month of April, so much so in fact that Jason argues that Steph should be the NBA MVP. He's the epitome of Most Valuable Player; Take...

On today's episode, Jason does a deep dive into Zion Williamson's highly-suggestive comments about his future. Following the New Orleans Pelicans' loss to the New York Knicks, Zion told the media how much he loves playing in Madison Square Garden. With the Knicks suddenly in the playoff mix, NYC looks more attractive than ever. The Pelicans? Not so much. New Orleans has made a series of boneheaded moves that's left ...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G discuss LaMarcus Aldridge's abrupt retirement from the NBA due to an irregular heartbeat. While most in the NBA media are focusing on how this could impact the Brooklyn Nets' title chances this season, the guys agree that this could be a case of addition by subtraction. Aldridge was a luxury item in Brooklyn. If anything, his absence should lead to more minutes for defensive ...

On today's episode, Jason does a deep dive into Trevor Lawrence telling Sports Illustrated that he thinks it's unhealthy to spend your career always feeling like you need to prove something. These comments immediately make you think of Baker Mayfield, a young quarterback who famously uses every public slight as motivation. Mayfield has been out to 'prove the haters wrong' dating back to his days as a walk-on in coll...
