Playoff Storylines (NBA: Play In, 76ers, Nets. NHL: Pens Psyche, Leafs Run?) In Quest For Titles, MLB's Lackluster Start? Brady vs. NE Highlight NFL Schedule. Preakness Letdown. PGA Preview

The sports season starts to intensify and I’ll make sure it’s all covered as Episode 194 is ready for consumption. On deck: (5:00) The NBA playoffs are just about here, but first, the play-in tournament that’ll determine who’ll make it into the top-8 seeds in each conference. I’ll take a look at the four games (CHA-IND, WSH-BOS, MEM-SA, GS-LAL) and who’ll move forward to join the other six in the East & West. I’ll have all of the juicy storylines from the Sixers ‘process’, the Nets ‘win now’ moment. Are the Clippers mentally and spiritually ready to push their game to the next level? Do you believe in the Jazz & Suns, with lots more playoff talk to dissect. I’ll get into Alex Rodriguez teaming up to purchase the T’Wolves. The Hall of Fame Ceremony with induction to Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan and the late, Kobe Bryant. As well as, next years class highlighted by Paul Pierce, Chris Bosh, Ben Wallace and Chris Webber. Let the debate begin. Is C-Webb a Hall of Famer? I’ll tell you why he isn’t! (40:00) The Stanley Cup Playoffs have begun. The storylines aren’t aplenty as they are in the NBA, but with the Penguins losing Game 1 in OT yesterday, is their psyche taking a huge hit for their recent playoff failures? Will the Lightning-Panthers series be as advertised? After one game, it sure is. I’ll preview the other series that haven’t gotten underway, border restrictions for the Canadian team that makes it to the Cup Semifinals and more housecleaning at Madison Square Garden as David Quinn was dismissed as coach. Was it fair? (55:18) Has the first quarter of the MLB season been lackluster? I’ll dive into the latest headlines, including, the Jarred Kelenic era opening in Seattle over the weekend. (1:05:30) I’ll share my thoughts on the NFL schedule. Brady vs. the Patriots on October 3rd. Who has the hardest schedule in the league? Some of the Sunday night/Monday night docket and Tim Tebow is NOT to blame for him being signed to play TE in Jacksonville. You won’t want to miss that. (1:21:34) Medina Spirit doesn’t get the job done as he finishes third in the Preakness. Will there be any buzz at the Belmont Stakes in three weeks? Probably not, but I have two instances where that could change. (1:24:30) I’ll preview the second golf major of the year as the PGA is on the horizon. Who will be the one player I’ll keep an eye on in a stacked field? Will Brooks Koepka regain his PGA winning ways? Also, my prediction as to who will win? (1:28:01) Plus, my Hero and Zero of the Week!
