Julia Turner is here to present the new podcast from The Gist's Mike Pesca, about the great "what-ifs" in sports. "What If I Hadn’t Written That Fan Letter to Dan Majerle in April 1993?", Jesse Eisenberg asks, revisiting a painful chapter of his youth when his beloved Phoenix Suns lost to the Chicago Bulls in the final seconds of Game 6 of the 1993 NBA Finals. Wracked by guilt at the possibility that his fan letter to the Suns’ Dan Majerle proved a fatal distraction, he imagines an alternate reality where he never put pen to paper. NBA legends Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan also make an appearance. Then there's a bonus conversation between Mike and Jesse.
