Both NBA Conference Finals are tied 2-2 in both the East and West — and breaking that down is not even the best part of this podcast. That's because NBA champion Metta World Peace joins us to talk about his new book, "No Malice: My Life in Basketball or: How a Kid from Queensbridge Survived the Streets, the Brawls, and Himself to Become an NBA Champion." World Peace discusses the time he cracked Michael Jordan's ribs in a summer game, how he was nervous before Game 7 of the NBA Finals in 2010, and how he was a pioneer in NBA players talking about mental health (Metta's portion of the podcast starts at 30:17). Before that, Dan Feldman and Kurt Helin of NBC Sports discuss LeBron James bringing Cleveland back, but with the Celtics going home will the young players wearing green respond and change the momentum around again? And do the Warriors have another gear and the ability to win another game on the road in Houston?
