Sam discusses social justice and the historic week in the NBA. Why are supposed Grizzlies fan blogs trying to trade away Jaren? This is why we can’t have nice things! Lastly, Subbi from TICH joins Sam to talk all things playoffs.

The show is wrapped up by reviewing the 1st round of the NBA Playoffs and a slight look ahead.
We’re inching closer and closer to the top 10 of our Top 50 College Basketball programs of all time as we embark on spots 15 through 11. These teams feature 2 of the biggest rivals in college sports and a coach that has been at his program for what feels like forever. We also talk about the Pac 12 cancelling hoops until 2021 and also the Kennedy Chandler pickup for Rick Barnes and Tennessee. Remember when we all thought that this would be finished by July? So foolish. Finally we wrap it up with a new segment from the Shark- Last 4 In, First 4 Out.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we got him. I incorrectly attributed that quote to Donald Rumsfeld but whatever, we got our guy John Fanta to hop on to discuss everything from his start in the business, Big East basketball and what are the best wings in Ohio. Enjoy!
We’ve whittled our list down to the top 20 and we are now talking teams with some national titles. We kick off the show talking about bachelor parties, sleeping arrangements and where we are currently staying. Then we actually talk some hoops and break down the 20-16 teams in our rankings. Let me ask you something: have you ever seen Michael Kidd Gilchrist score a bucket in the NBA? I’m talking like watching a live Hornets or Mavericks game and seeing him score. I digress. The great thing about this group of teams is that almost all of them had a very memorable NCAA tournament game that they participated in. We finally end the program with Where Am I and Hugs.
The Grizzlies play their first public basketball in months with scrimmages against the Sixers, Rockets, and Heat. There are plenty of shenanigans going on inside the NBA bubble.

We also talk about some news and notes in the college hoops world. We end it with a moving message from the Shark’s wedding priest as well as Where Am I? and Hugs.
