Dodgers Rising/Yankees Falling, Nets Title Chances Without KD? How Minneapolis Verdict Could Affect Sports World? NHL's Marleau's Mega Milestone! Julian Edelman's Next Stop: Canton?
I’ve got lots to get off of my chest as I take you through the sports universe as Episode 190 is ready for consumption. On deck: (5:24) The polar opposites of what we’ve seen so far from the LA Dodgers (13-3, best record in the majors) and the NY Yankees (5-10, worst record in the American League) I’ll break down both teams to date and take a trip throughout the leagues and discuss AJ Hinch’s return to Houston, Carlos Rodon’s no-hitter, Shane Bieber’s historic start and an injury update on Ronald Acuna, Jr. (30:08) The NBA concluded a very interesting week detailing Philadelphia overtaking the Brooklyn in the East. Analysis of the Nets title chances as players are consistently in and out of the lineup, the importance of Kevin Durant’s health and his presence on the floor, Coach Steve Nash’s and GM Sean Marks impact on the team while exhibiting some integrity to a veteran laden group. i’ll get into the key loss for Denver as Jamal Murray is done for the season. The close call from Donovan Mitchell as they’re still atop the West. Luka Doncic/Mark Cuban’s comments regarding the play-in tournament. Are they wrong? Newly minted part owner of the Jazz, Dwyane Wade and how his influence and pedigree could help come the postseason? Steph Curry is the Warriors all-time scorer in team history, And the potential outcome in Minneapolis as the jury deliberation will begin in the Derek Chauvin case. What does this mean for the world of sports? For society? I have a message to the sports fan that they may not want to hear, but is dripping with truth. (56:21) The NHL will celebrate a moment that many never thought would happen. Sharks winger, Patrick Marleau will become the all time leader in games played at 1,768. I’ll compare this to other players of the past generation to show how much of an achievement this is for the game and the league overall. Also, the Canucks have played their first game in over three weeks due to players contracting the coronavirus. Will they try to squeeze in their full schedule over the next month? And some big games in the Central and Eastern Division this week as first place is up for grabs. (1:05:24) Julian Edelman rides off into the sunset as he retires from the New England Patriots. Is the Pro Football Hall of Fame the next stop of his ‘football life’? Why I say it is NOT, as well as, is Justin Fields’s stock slipping among the top QB’s on the draft board as Round 1 of the NFL Draft is next Thursday? (1:15:46) Of course, I’ll have my Hero and Zero of the Week.
