    Can Anything Keep the Celtics from Raising Banner 18?

    Can Anything Keep the Celtics from Raising Banner 18?

    Two games into the NBA Finals, and it looks like nothing can keep the Boston Celtics away from lifting an 18th championship banner to the rafters. They’ve been able to limit the Dallas attack to just Luka Doncic, and everything seems to be going their way.

    ESPN NBA reporter Tim Bontemps has been at both games of the series, and he joins the show to explain just how Boston is keeping the Dallas attack in check. And explore if a shift in venue to the Lone Star state will be enough to give the Mavs a fighting chance.

    America Shocks the World in… Cricket?!

    For Americans who’ve never watched a cricket match before, now may be the best time to start. Because for the first time ever, Team USA has drawn global attention, after shocking the world in an upset over Pakistan last Thursday. And that feat looks all the more improbable when you learn who exactly is on this roster. 

    So today, ESPN’s own Aishwarya Kumar explains how they pulled it off, and why this Men’s T20 World Cup tournament looks like a watershed moment for American cricket. 

    You can stream Team USA’s Wednesday and Friday matches against India and Ireland at 10:30 AM Eastern Time.

    How Maya Brady Carried the Family Name into the Next Generation

    With all of the energy surrounding women’s basketball these days, it can be easy to lose sight of the fact that the interest in women’s sports is growing beyond just the hardwood.

    We’ve seen a professional women’s hockey league return to the ice this season, stars continue to shine on the tennis courts and the track. And interest in the Women’s College World Series has steadily increased year over year leading to an average of two million fans tuning in to the most watched title series ever.

    So today, Jake Trotter, who covers college sports at ESPN, introduces us to Maya Brady, a prolific shortstop at UCLA, who just completed a decorated college career on the softball field.

    And Jake tells us why Maya’s rise is about more than just her shared family lineage with her uncle, one Tom Brady.

    Who Will Get Over the Hump? Emily Kaplan Previews the Stanley Cup Final

    Who Will Get Over the Hump? Emily Kaplan Previews the Stanley Cup Final

    The teams meeting in the Stanley Cup Final this season, the Edmonton Oilers and Florida Panthers, are both trying to get over the hump.

    For the Panthers, this is year three in their recent turnaround. Having the best record in the NHL two seasons ago didn’t get it done, and last year they fell a step short of lifting Lord Stanley’s trophy into the air for the first time as a franchise.

    Up in Edmonton, the Oilers haven’t won it all since 1990, when a guy named Wayne Gretzky was still lacing them up. And after falling short in the playoffs themselves over the past few seasons, they are looking to bring home the cup not just for their city, but for the entirety of the nation.

    So today, ESPN NHL reporter Emily Kaplan tells us what to watch for ahead of Saturday’s game one.

    How a City Sponsorship Could Signal Change in the WNBA

    How a City Sponsorship Could Signal Change in the WNBA

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock the WNBA continues to be a hot topic, showing fans and the world that excitement around women's basketball is expanding beyond a “moment.” 

    With all the chatter about aggression towards rookies, vet players, crazy record stats, and even team mascots dominating the floor, there is one thing that has been looming top of mind for many over the last few weeks: money.

    The two-time reigning WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces are again at the forefront, as all twelve of the players on the team are negotiating with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) on a $100,000 sponsorship deal. A number even higher than the league salary minimum.

    The news came as a welcome surprise to many, but also sparked an investigation from the league. So today Aces beat reporter, Callie Lawson-Freeman of the Las Vegas Review-Journal is here to share what she has been able to find out on the ground about this sponsorship and what it could mean for the league.

    Brian Windhorst Previews a Fascinating NBA Finals Matchup

    Brian Windhorst Previews a Fascinating NBA Finals Matchup

    This year’s NBA finals feature one team everyone saw coming and, according to Brian Windhorst, another we probably should have seen coming. 

    The Boston Celtics have been on a hot streak all season long –– easily claiming the league’s best record –– while the Dallas Mavericks have been pushing their way towards the mountaintop week by week.

    Game 1 of the NBA Finals tips off Thursday night and there’s so much to think about, including how Dallas might actually have the two best players on the court, whether or not Kyrie Irving can shake his Celtics curse, and why it’s win now or maybe never for this iteration of the Celtics.

    Brian Windhorst has been in the building with both teams as they’ve made their run through the playoffs and joins us to share what we can expect as the Finals begin.

What a change

The change from Mina Kimes to Pablo has been a life saver for the show. He guides this show perfectly and the improvement from the prior host can not be emphasised enough

Clinton Yates has ruined this show

His ‘kiddos’ catchphrase has to be the most bizarre and annoying thing ever said
