Episode 49: Isaiah Thomas please play now, get paid then talk later, homie. You’re on one side of the room listening to this guy talk—it’s a staff meeting. He’s new to the job, but this is a veteran crew-- everybody else has dealt with ups and downs, including this guy. You have a supportive management team, I mean there are a few warts but nothing a little tweak can't fix because you've seen what this team can do. But wait why is this guy pointing at me. Is he blaming me? He's talking about defense now. What is going on here? Slap: Level up - Rex Life Raj Seasons - feat. Mozzy, Sjava and Reason Jungle Love - Jay Dee / Dilla feat Guilty Simpson & MED

info_outline Episode 40: The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead. Speaking with a Cavs real one 10/02/2016
Episode 40: The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead. Speaking with a Cavs real one Episode 40, recorded in June after the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead to lose the NBA chip to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Before the series started I was talking smack with a dope MC and educator out of Cleveland, RepLife, then real life happened. A lead was blown and history was made. This is my way of getting ready for the upcoming NBA season. Gotta face facts!

info_outline Episode 38: Super Bowl 50 wrap-up 02/08/2016
Episode 38: Super Bowl 50 wrap-up Finally a post Super Bowl edition. We follow up on our predictions from Episode 37—we were wrong. All wrong. But look at Payton Manning sidestepping HGH rumors from the Al Jazeera report published in December. Meanwhile Cam Newton wrote a pretty big public relations check being boisterous and cocky. Can he cash it? Will we allow him a chance to make good on his talent and brashness? And while Cam Newton was under the radar for his post game behavior, it was the Denver Broncos defense that pushed Cam off his mark on the field and off the mic during the post game press conference.
info_outline Episode 37: Super Bowl 50 preparation and Hollywood 01/26/2016
Episode 37: Super Bowl 50 preparation and Hollywood The Super Bowl teams are set. The Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers are ready to go and while Denver was a safe bet at the start of the season nobody picked the Panthers. But if you step back and appreciate the MVP season Cam Newton put together, you’ll notice he actually got better in the playoffs—makes sense. But what about interesting choices with his wardrobe? Dab. Oscars Always So White, right? But look at Common makin’ them Hollywood adjustments with Laura Dern. As the show flows on we also hit on the Golden State Warriors handling the San Antonio Spurs highlighted by a damn near perfect game from Steph Curry. But what do you get from that outside of one more regular season notch in the win column? If Kawhi Leonard can’t guard Steph, what’s next for San Antonio? Lebron bounced David Blatt and Blake Griffin bounced an equipment manager, some dude no taller than 6 feet. Reputation rehab, STAT! And what about these Kevin Love trade rumors? Thinkin’ of A Master Plan - YZ No More Parties in LA – Kanye West feat. Kendrick Lamar Little Brother - Good Clothes Burn Hollywood Burn Nothing Can Come Between Us - Sade Anderson .Paak - Come Down First reference to “Steph” means Steph Curry, second reference is for Vino significant other, Stephanie Banner. Hi Steph! Frank said, Steve Bowman. Steve Balmer is the owner of the Los Angeles Clipper. Flint: profess didn’t know the second or more polluted (not diluted) water source serving Flint Michigan. Answer: Flint River Also, the state changed Flint’s water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River but currently the water might be coming from Lake Huron again but the pipes feeding the city need replacing ASAP and there’s a call for help including direct funds to purchase water or for funds to support more studies on the damage and solutions. Honestly I’m still trying to catch up on this and that includes figuring out the best way for folks to help in the most effective way. Administrative costs are necessary to a degree but some of these nonprofit foundations are mismanaged so if you have any information on the best ways to help Flint residents, please pass it along.

A nod to the passing of David Bowie was left out but GameTight Sports remembers Bowie as an advocate for more black artists on MTV and for taking risks.
info_outline Episode 36: What's Next for Kaepernick and RG3 01/02/2016
Episode 36: What's Next for Kaepernick and RG3 Robert Griffin III. Remember that first year? He was handling the spread offense like he was still at Baylor. Subway commercials. Playoffs! Life was good. But then he stayed in a game too long after suffering a leg injury, Shanahan moved on and Jay Gruden moved in. Bye bye spread offense and bye bye huge speed differential between RG3 and most NFL linebackers. Hello Kirk Cousins. What now? And what about Kaepernick? He was flexing with no sleeves just a minute ago. There were haters but he had Beats by Dre. He came close in the Super Bowl then another loss in the NFC championship and the next thing you know his protector left for Ann Arbor and the Honey Badger had his number. So what's next for these two? Thanks to a great question from a caller, FrankRed handles those questions. It was easy to get caught up in the streak because streaks are fun. But Young Vino looked deeper at the way the Warriors are playing. The win loss record still looks sexy and when you have the greatest shooter in the game, you can always sidestep a loss. But the defense isn't the same and the turnovers are hot. Let's be honest, right now the way things are trending, the arguments for San Antonio looking stronger than Golden State are pretty compelling. 2015 favorites: Skyzoo | Alabama Shakes | Kendrick Love you Cheryl!

Episode 35: It’s December. The Warriors finally lost a game 12-13-2015 We made some NBA predictions in episode 34 so here in Episode 35 it’s time to check on the progress since we’re about a third of the way through the regular season. Steph Curry as MVP: On schedule Paul George as Comeback Player of the Year: On schedule Karl-Anthony Towns: On schedule. Dwight Howard as DPOY: Like flying United. Look the Eastern Conference is no longer a tire fire. Why? Improved players AND coaching of course. How do you explain Puffy Combs? Like from musical perspective? He’s not a producer in the traditional sense. Not a bandleader. Not a writer. But yet with his vision he’s been able to carve out an amazing over the last 20 years. Music please: High & Might feat.

info_outline Episode 33: Three games late for NBA predictions 11/05/2015
Episode 33: Three games late for NBA predictions The Warriors as champs are like an amalgamation of the Celtics and Laker championship team of the 80's. On the crunchy side you have the Celtics: hated and not really respected by many. Too fundamental. Too good. And on the sweet side you have the Lakers. Showtime. Slick dimes. Magic. That's Golden State. The greatest show everyone wants to see but because you rock Cavalier, Clippers, Thunder, Rockets, Kings or Wizards jerseys you have to be quiet when they say shut up. But when your squad ain’t around, you be cheering again. For the Warriors. This will be one of the most entertaining NBA seasons in years because of that duality. MVP Draymond as DPOY and a pretty solid rookie class. Who you got?
info_outline Episode 32: Black President 10/14/2015
Episode 32: Black President While Frank and Vino were meeting President Obama and checking a private performance from Kanye, I was telling folks they get enough Fetty Wap from the radio. We get personal stories about Lamar Odom. Review the Fredro Star/Keith Murray battle. Looky here: Kaepernick looked damn good against the NY Giants. Unfortunately the Niner defense failed everybody on the Giants last drive. De La Soul on that crowd sourcing hype to get their album produced. Makes sense. The Raiders lose a close one to Denver so what’s next for bye week. Unwritten rules in baseball: An interesting study in culture.
info_outline Episode 31: If Kaepernick is trash, can't you recycle? 10/05/2015
Episode 31: If Kaepernick is trash, can't you recycle? How would you handle the Kaepernick situation? FrankRed says tighten up the fundamentals. Not just on a game by game basis but series to series. Red envisions a game plan of field management in the vein of the ’86 New York Giants. soul.p believes you have to first tighten up the locker room. You don’t want anyone flaming you during the game but you definitely can’t allow it to happen in the press. So who galvanizes the locker room? Tomsula’s a player’s coach, right? Navarro Bowman? Baalke? The best answer to that question is… Young Vino says it’s too late for anything else but to sit Kap. He’s playing for his NFL career now. To be a team leader you must have the respect of your locker. It’s too late for that, b. Plan and simple he’s gotta sit. Of course we talk Raiders and their loss to the Bears. Amari Cooper reminded us he is rookie and we reexamine the (tight?) reigns on Derek Carr held by Bill Musgrave. Rick Pitino. Habitual line stepper.

Soul.profess wants to know and challenges the fans to follow the lead of Steve Kerr. And if Warrior fans can embrace Gary St. Jean then we can damn sure embrace Mark Jackson. Cleveland has depth and rotation issues going into the Finals but can they pull off the upset? What does a second championship do for this organization? And before we count our chickens, lets first appreciate the legacy and journey from 1975 to now from the eyes of Al Attles III, Young Vino. We close out the show with a discussion on the Johnny Manziel water bottle incident at the Byron Nelson gold tournament. How would you have handled it?

Episode 24: Clippers choke job Western Conference Finals preview Golden State Warriors v Houston Rockets, but did the Rockets walk through? Hell naw, the Clippers pulled off one of the biggest choke jobs in NBA history. Young Vino breaks it down. Skipping ahead isn't the best thing to do, but the producers of this podcast aren't the biggest fans of Houston so we look at a potential Golden State v. Cavaliers/Hawks matchup. Latifah did work as Bessie Smith and the Iverson doc gets a review. The Twitter feed told me Marie J Blige explained “dancer” from Family Affair. Or did she?
