The Thrill & Agony Of Game 7's! Islanders Fall Short. What's Next? Cup Preview. CP3 On Cusp. A Clipper Comeback? Can Bucks Seal The Deal? MLB's First Ejection Crackdown! A Wimbledon Shocker!

Another milestone for the podcast as Episode #200 is coming at you correct, direct and in full effect on all of the latest and greatest in the world of sports. On deck: (6:45) The lead up and thrill of a Game 7, but in a loss, the pain and suffering that comes with it. (9:22) Which brings me to the NY Islanders, who fell two goals short of making it to their first Stanley Cup Finals in 37 years. I’ll recap their final week in the postseason, what to expect this offseason, what they need to get over the hump and a BOLD prediction for next year’s team that you won’t want to miss. I’ll also get into the Montreal Canadiens unexpected run to a Cup Final and predict who’ll hoist Lord Stanley as champions of the NHL. There’s also a new coach for the newly minted Seattle Kraken as I’ll share my thoughts on that. (31:31) Future Hall of Famer and Suns point guard, Chris Paul is one win away from reaching his first ever NBA Finals, but there may be something brewing with the Clippers as I have a gut that they have the Suns right where they want ‘em. I’ll deep dive as to the possibility of a Clipper Comeback that would be the cataclysmic event this woe be gone franchise needs to get themselves into the Finals. By chance, if the Clippers happen to push this series to a 7th game, what does this say about current coach, Ty Lue? What about Doc Rivers and his tenure as Clips coach? The Bucks have control of their series with the Hawks, but will they put the hammer down on a feisty Atlanta team that’ll come into Game 4 hurting as Trae Young is hobbled with an ankle injury? I’ll also get into the various coaching vacancies filled in Indiana, Boston, Dallas and Portland with some news on Luka Doncic’s alleged relationship with the Mavericks front office and Kristaps Porzingis. Does Damian Lillard want out of Portland now that Chauncey Billups is the head coach? Some interesting developments going on and I have it all covered. (57:40) Week one of the crackdown with foreign substances in MLB is in the books. At the tail end of it, there was an ejection with the Mariners reliever, Hector Santiago being tossed for having resin in his glove. Was an ejection warranted? Should this have happened since the substance was legal? I’ll have that, the Yankees floundering, the Mets big week, the Giants could put some distance between them and the Dodgers and a top heavy NL & AL as we approach the halfway point of the regular season. (1:13:19) A shocker at Wimbledon as one of the top men’s players is ousted at the All England Club. Which leads to the bigger question. Is Novak Djokovic’s quest to winning the third leg of the calendar Grand Slam a formality? Also, who’ll come out victorious on the women’s side? I’ll have a preview. (1:20:36) A couple of notes regarding two offensive lineman in the NFL with one player going (David DeCastro released by the Steelers) and one player coming (Morgan Moses signs with the Jets). (1:23:15) Not to mention, my Hero and Zero of the Week.
