Professor David Berri returns to talk "Slaying the Trolls" the book he wrote with UMass' Vice Chancellor for Equity and Inclusion Nefertiti Walker. It deconstructs many of the myths in women sports, and touches on a lot of NBA and WNBA, which we love!

Stat padding, blockbuster trades, the MVP race, and more!

  • Embiid and Stat Padding
  • MVP Race, can a player be an MVP w/ 65 games played?
  • The Detroit Pistons / Washington Wizards "Blockbuster Trade" and if Marvin Bagley should dethrone Same Bowie as the biggest draft bust.
    • A history lesson about how Moneyball is a misleading narrative.
  • We discuss Pascal Siakam's possible spot. Spoiler, we think Dallas was a better fit than Indiana.
  • We also question DeJounte Murray and if he should return to the Spurs.
  • We don't believe Mikal Bridges is on the block but do question if a change of scenery would help.
