I've wanted to get Rashad Phillips on the podcast to chat for a while, so I got on the phone with him today to chat about some of the guards in the 2020 NBA Draft. We disagree a lot! We both like LaMelo Ball, but have very different evaluations on RJ Hampton. We like Grant Riller, but disagree on Jahmi'us Ramsey. All that and more on all of the guards in the 2020 NBA Draft.

In this episode, actual basketball content! We break down the NBA Awards we would vote for if the season ends today (and it looks like it might). MVP, All-NBA, DPOY, all the good stuff. But we open on a couple of things, including a hilarious scuttled Knicks-Hornets deal, and the sham that is the NCAA's agency accreditation process. Finally, we talk about Tiger King and the Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience, both of which were definitely experiences.

And we close out by answering mailbag questions from listeners. Some stuff on the Cavaliers' backcourt, the Warriors offseason, the NBA Draft, and then some thoughts on what the best bad movies are to watch during quarantine. ...
