Bomani Jones weighs in on sports, pop culture, social topics and much more from NYC.

    America's Team

    America's Team

    Bomani shares his thoughts on the misery that is the Dallas Cowboys as currently constructed (0:56). Why do they still matter so much? Why are they “America’s team”? He also discusses why Derrick Henry of the Titans may be the last in a long line of Hall of Fame running backs (23:07) and sheds light on the situation around “The Eyes of Texas” for the Longhorns’ football team (33:37). Plus, an IYHH with returning museum artifacts to their country of origin (49:21) and your voicemails from being let down by your home squad (1:03:55).

    Commander Cody

    Commander Cody

    Bomani Jones shares his thoughts on the injury to Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (0:57), including why it reminds us of the guilt we feel around the brutality of the game as well as why he believes that Prescott will still remain in Dallas long-term. The Lakers won the ‘chip (25:24), and why a piece about dementia and COVID-19 spells bad news for the NFL (40:20). Plus, an IYHH including “monkey gang wars” in India (49:45), and your voicemails from when you “quit football” (1:04:16).

    Vinnie Goodwill on the success of the bubble, NBA Finals, Lions narcotic

    Vinnie Goodwill on the success of the bubble, NBA Finals, Lions narcotic

    Bomani and Vinnie Goodwill look back on the year for the NBA in advance of (potentially) the final game of the season with Heat-Lakers Game 5. The league deserves props for making this thing happen in the bubble (0:55). Would Anthony Davis be your MVP and are these Lakers historically great compared to others from their team’s history (27:10)? Plus, does Doc Rivers fix the Sixers (48:55) and Vinnie makes his plea for Lions fans to give up on “that narcotic” (1:01:58).

    Zone Is For Cowards

    Zone Is For Cowards

    Bomani Jones discusses why despite the “want to” from Jimmy Butler that won the Heat Game 3 of the NBA Finals, he stills hates the zone (0:58). If the Lakers come out on top would LeBron be deserving of the MVP and why did LSU gives up on COVID stadium protocols (21:27)? Plus, Bo tells stories about how much of a “bad man” Bob Gibson was following his passing (34:15), an IYHH including a 67 year-old woman known as “ninja lady” (41:42) and your voicemails from the “game within the game” (55:19).

    Nick Wright on Game 1 of NBA Finals, Mahomes, Hall of Fame tweeners

    Nick Wright on Game 1 of NBA Finals, Mahomes, Hall of Fame tweeners

    Bomani and Nick Wright dive into the deeper issues with the Clippers and discuss how it reflects on a Lakers team that dominated Game 1 of the NBA Finals (6:05). This leads to a debate around borderline Hall of Fame cases across sports such as a few current members of the Warriors and Chiefs as Nick gets the obligatory amount of time to gush about his hometown squad (27:00). Plus, QB play across the NFL (38:51) and whether or not the Lakers are in for a run of championships if they close the deal against Miami (55:31).
