    The Milwaukee Bucks chose not to play Game 5 of their first-round playoff series against the Orlando Magic in protest of police brutality in the wake of the shooting of Jacob Blake, and the Rockets-Thunder and Lakers-Blazers matchups were also postponed.

Kemba Walker interview

Love the show overall, but the Kemba Walker interview was completely unlistenable due to his phone constantly going off. I understand you may not have the power to tell him to turn it off, but I had to stop after about 5 minutes because it was so bad.
