Same problem with Knicks and Lakers?
Former Atlanta Hawk and 10-year NBA veteran Mike "The Stinger" Glenn will be our guest on WatchDOGS Radio.
In addition to his 10-year NBA career with the Atlanta Hawks, Buffalo Braves, Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks, Glenn is a veteran of television, having worked for Turner Sports, CNN/SI and ESPNU as both a game and studio analyst.
Another of Glenn’s passions is his Mike Glenn Basketball Camp for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing, which celebrated their 35th anniversary in 2014. This non-profit organization is the nation’s first basketball camp for hearing-challenged athletes, and is offered every summer free of charge to as many as 120 deaf athletes across the country.
Did we spend five years of our lives waiting and anticipating the so-called "Fight of the Century"? Yes we did, and what did we receive instead, the same ol' Mayweather. Mr. Floyd Mayweather, Money Mayweather to you and yours, tormented boxing fans with another boring, dull, and anti-climatic performance. As for Manny Pacquiao, it didn't get much better. After an acceptable beginning, he faded like Haley's comet. The real fight was in the NBA, between the Clippers and the Spurs. A game 7 for the ages! Join IntheZone for a special edition podcast to recap one of the most anticipated Saturdays in sports history.
Who will win the NBA title?
Do the Warriors have enough to win the title?
Will the Spurs win back to back?
Are the Hawks forreal?
Can the Cavs bring a championship to Cleveland for the first time since 1964?
With Derrick Rose healthy can the Bulls finally get over the hump?
We will break down both the East and West brackets in the playoffs and we tell you who we think will win both the East and the West plus we also give out our NBA Finals prediction and tell you who we think will win it all

We'll chat Clippers/Spurs and see whether the either team has the upper hand in a great series so far. Who were the heroes of the series to date? How did Austin Rivers come out of nowhere to take over game 4 in San Antonio? Have Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli shown their age lately? How big was Tim Duncan so far? Have Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan answered the critics through five games? Last we give our predictions for Game 6: will there be a 7th game in Los Angeles?

REBROADCAST FROM MAY 6,2012 THIS IS A 3HR SHOW INCLUDES JAY KING SLOW JAMES
I got to tell you, I admire Stephanie's spunk. I love her ability to stand for what she believes in and works hard to market her shows here on the JKN. She does not take any gruff or funky stuff. And she will admit when she is wrong, which is rare for a lot of people, male or female. She is a motivated and determined woman, who is out to get the job done, and get the job done she does. You will find no bigger fan for the LAKERS than THE LAKER GURL. I pull for the CLIPPERS when it comes to L.A., but Stephanie won't have it, she is LAKERS all the way, so get ready! 347-205-9366 - Call her up. #WWLG4L #JKN
