Clipper Survival/NBA's 2nd Round. Canadien Uprising In Montreal! MLB's Newest Scandal. NFL Power Shift In AFC? French Open Flop! PGA: Rahm's Poor Luck. Belmont Stakes Ends Rough Month

No June swoon as the sports world continues to heat up with summer inching closer. I’ll have all of the latest analysis and hot takes as Episode #197 is ready for consumption. On deck: (5:03) The NBA is onto the second round, but the Clippers saved face as they come back and secure a home win to move on to play the Jazz. Could this be what the Clippers needed? What about the disappearing act of Mavericks forward, Kristaps Porzingis? The Knicks feel good season goes up in flames. LeBron James’s lack of sportsmanship. The Celtics face an overhaul? Who will be their next head coach? I’ll have some predictions out West in the Conference Semifinals. (39:37) The NHL’s top story of the postseason has been the remarkable 180 of the Montreal Canadiens. From the brink of extinction to the brink of the Cup semifinals, I’ll unpack the week that was and the rest of the second round playoff series that’s making news throughout the league. Plus, who are the two best teams in the league at the moment? And the makings of a sexy Stanley Cup Final matchup? (55:10) MLB has a serious issue on their hands. Pitchers are about to be called out for using foreign substances to gain an advantage for ‘spin rate’ throughout the league. Will this crackdown be strict? Lenient? The brilliance of Jacob deGrom and can the Yankees jump start their lineup? (1:12:54) Julio Jones gets traded from Atlanta to Tennessee to add another layer to an already stacked conference. (1:16:19) The French Open has come undone with injuries, player withdrawals, etc. Is there a silver lining that can save the tournament? (1:21:13) A major player in golf contracts COVID while having a huge lead in a tournament over the weekend. The Bryson DeChambeau-Brooks Koepka rivalry is one to keep an eye on. (1:23:52) The Belmont Stakes puts an end to a rather forgettable five weeks in horse racing. (1:25:36) Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather. Is this actually a topic of discussion? (1:26:08) Of course, my Hero and Zero of the Week!
