    Ep. 353 Conquering Corona & 2020 Vision

    We're back for a special episode! Unprecedented times create remarkable opportunities, and we couldn't think of a better time to bring the Section 357 Show back from hiatus than during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a moment where there's no live sports around the world, we breakdown how we ended up in this historic moment, the response and shift to a digital culture for both sports and Hip-Hop, and how we all move forward from here.

    This is still "Sports Without Borders"...

Lastly, we couldn't let Keeth go without discussing his beloved Knicks and what hip-hop music he's digging these days. This was a great show!

    Ep. 350 Drake and Meek Mill: Beef, Well Done?

    Ep. 350 Drake and Meek Mill: Beef, Well Done?

    In this episode of the Section 357 Show, we cover the motivations, accusations, and conversations surrounding the beef between Drake and Meek Mill. Rarely in hip-hop has the discord between two artists spilled over into pop culture in this way, with brands, celebrities, and athletes all weighing in on the matter. With that in mind, Big Shot Ron and Floyd addressed the key issues surrounding this moment and its aftermath.

    What precipitated Meek Mill’s initial Twitter rant?
    What “unofficial” protocol was breached?
    What role does Nicki Minaj play?
    Where does Drake’s diss response compare to other moments in hip-hop history?
    How has Social Media affected anticipated response times?
    What were some of the best Social Media memes?
    Did Drake pick an easy target in Meek Mill?
    What should Rick Ross do?
    What does Meek Mill's career look like going forward?

    Episode 349: The NBA Offseason Buffet

    Episode 349: The NBA Offseason Buffet

    With the NBA in its post-draft/free agency period, Big Shot Ron and Floyd decide to have a 2nd (or 3rd) helping of NBA conversation at the family BBQ to address some pressing questions around the structure and state of the league heading into next season.

    Can the NBA improve it's draft coverage by finally embracing social media the right way?
    Did the Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls really improve or fall behind by default?
    Will Emmanuel Mudiay be a trendsetter in the high-school-to-overseas basketball route?
    Is Sam Dekker really the 2nd best player in this draft?

    If answering those questions wasn't enough, the guys shine a light on how the Golden State Warriors are built for the long-term, and how the NBA's star players are exerting control over the financial machine of the league.

    Lastly, with the Pistons, Lakers, Knicks, and 76ers in such dire straits as franchises, which franchise bounces back to prominence first? The answer might surprise you. (Hint: It's not the Knicks. Obviously.)

    Ep. 345 NBA Past and Future: Looking Forward in the Rear View Mirror

    We break down Big Shot Ron's recent articles about this year's NBA playoff projections and the best draft picks of every team. Plus, some candid talk about the Kobe Bryant and the Lakers' misfortunes, Anthony Davis vs. Dwight Howard, and the Atlanta Hawks' ownership situation.

    We round out the show by reiterating what the NBA suits and sponsors may have been reluctant to admit: the NBA and Hip-Hop are intertwined business cultures.
