    Family, we are on the brink of an NBA semi-tournament restart. I know I'm hype, but not everyone feels the same. There are plenty of people questioning if this is the right move..
    -Difficult obstacles for players when they get to the NBA bubble.
    -Can everyone stay focused?
    -Will conditioning become a major factor?
    -Which team has an upper hand upon the restart?
    -Which team can make a surprise run?

    Ep 123: Stay Focused

    The world is in a state of unrest & this moment called for a roundtable. This episode I'm joined by Reem (@Letstalksportstv) Mark (@Thefreshfeen) & Jarv (@Chet_Ohara).
    There are no words that can describe the feeling of uncomfortableness in the world right now but it is necessary. We need answers & change right now in our society & some feel with the pending restart of the NBA season, it may not be the best idea...
    -Does the NBA returning distract us from our fight for social justice?
    -Our thoughts on Kyrie Irving at the helm of holding off the restart.
    -Are some upset at the message or is it really the messenger?
    -Other players thoughts on returning.
    -Is the NBA bubble plan safe?
    -The NY Knicks BLM statement. Is it time to cancel the Knicks?
