Wrapping up February as we creep closer to a busy sports month! Episode 115 will have all you need when it comes to what’s going on in the world of sports. On deck:
(3:28) The top storylines as the NBA kicks off its “second half” after the All-Star Break. Coach John Beilein’s ouster in Cleveland. Sixers Joel Embiid’s proclamation as the ‘best player in the world’, the Celtics-Lakers matchup yesterday with an overview of both teams looking forward. As well as, a breakdown of an up to the minute seedings in each conference for playoff positioning.
(21:43) A topsy-turvy week in College Basketball which saw four of the top six seeds lose in the past five days. What does this mean as far as the tournament is concerned?
(26:49) Capitals winger, Alexander Ovechkin becomes the eighth player to score 700 goals in the NHL. Does Great Eight (Ovi) have a chance to catch the Great One (Gretzky)? Also, talk of the trade deadline as it approaches at 3pm today with a couple of deals that I discuss.
(38:24) Former Astros P Mike Fiers was criticized (called a snitch by Red Sox legend, David Ortiz), received death threats via social media and was praised by the crowd upon his first start of the spring. Should he be critiqued or canonized for what he did? The Yankees may lose another starter to begin 2020. Is this a sign of things to come for 2020?
(46:00) NFL news and notes as the combine approaches this week (not a fan), Drew Brees to give it another shot, Browns LT Greg Robinson carrying how much pot? And is there a stalemate between the owners and players over the new proposal regarding the potential new NFL schedule?
(50:36) Plus a recap of the heavyweight fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury on Saturday night and my Hero and Zero of the Week.
