We've finally made it to the NBA's conference finals, and the Bay Area residents brought in a native Houstonian to play devil's advocate. Houston Style magazine editor and Day & A Dream editor-in-chief Brandon Caldwell hops on to discuss whether his Houston Rockets have any chance in shocking the world against the Golden State Warriors. Plus, we talk about Dream, Onyx, Frenchy's, Drake in Houston and Swisha House Records. Let's make some fun history.

The Houston Texans, HBO Sports and NFL Films are teaming up for an all-access look at what it takes to make it in the National Football League when HARD KNOCKS: TRAINING CAMP WITH THE HOUSTON TEXANS debuts in August. The first sports-based reality series – and one of the fastest-turnaround programs on TV – kicks off its five-episode tenth season this summer. Texans Owner Bob McNair and General Manger Rick Smith talk about the team's decision to bare it all and share the behind the scenes stories from camp with the entire nation. NFL Films Supervising Producer Ken Rodgers and Director Matt Dissinger discuss how the show is produced, why they selected the Texans and their goal for the show. Later in the show we talk with some of the players about the first day of OTA's and their thoughts about being on HARD KNOCKS. Louis Nix is back on the field for the first time, Brian Hoyer is making his Texans' OTA debut and Duane Brown is gearing up for a season with more changes on the offensive line. The NBA Finals are set after the Houston Rockets fell to the Golden State Warriors in game five of the Western Conference Finals 104-90. Steph Curry and the Warriors will take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. We'll talk about last night's Rockets loss; what this team needs to do to take the next step more. There are a lot of headlines topping the sports world this week including the drama surrounding FIFA. It's all up for discussion on this week's show.
Kenny and Cousin Harry join Zack to talk about the NBA Draft Lottery, the NBA's Final Four teams and their match ups. Then Zack is joined by young up and coming rapper from Houston Tedy Andreas, they catch up on what is going on in Tedy's career and his beloved Houston Rockets postseason run thus far....

Join Brandon Pemberton and Anthony Green as they recap the Houston Rockets 128-115 game four victory over the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry's injury and status for game 5 Wednesday night as well.Lebron James led the Cavs to a great game three victory on Sunday night and the Cavs can close the Hawks out with a victory tonight in game four. Cavs PG Kyrie Irving is a game time decision. We will also discuss the first ten picks of the 2015 NBA Draft, Ray McDonald being cut by the Bears for yet another domestic violence issue, and the 2015 Heisman Trophy favorites as well.
James Harden scored a playoff career-high 45 points to help the Houston Rockets avoid elimination in Game 4 against the Golden State Warriors. During the game, Stephen Curry took a hard and awkward fall resulting in a head contusion as the basketball world held its collective breath.
Meanwhile, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are one win away from advancing to the NBA Finals without Kevin Love, and with Kyrie Irving limited with a knee injury. On the other hand, the Atlanta Hawks lost a heartbreaking Game 3 and are on the brink of elimination.
With that in mind, Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops.com joined ESPN Radio host Freddie Coleman to discuss the state of each series and other topics. Is Harden a superstar? Why did Curry return to the game with a head contusion? Is Matthew Dellavedova a dirty player?
We are back for the full 2 hours tonight with lots to talk about. Mychal Mulder is officially a member of the Kentucky Wildcats. We aren't big soccer heads but FIFA is making news for all the wrong reasons. LeBron James once again has his Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals after disposing of the Atlanta Hawks in four games.
The Houston Rockets look to live to fight another game six battle if they can find a way to win game five in Oakland against the Golden State Warriors. Dwight Howard will be available, how will MVP Stephen Curry be feeling?
Former UK guard and friend of the show Cameron Mills joins us to talk hoops at 6:15. Ernest Shepard of outsideanalysis.com stops by at 7:25 to talk all things Chitown sports.
Impossible to go into the conference finals without talking about the team that should have made it but didn't -- the Los Angeles Clippers. My take: They are not cursed. They were merely too thin, and they didn't have the fortitude to finish the job.
And if the Houston Rockets taught us all one thing during their series against Doc Rivers' team, it was this: Never give up, no matter how bleak things seem.
But that series is behind us, and we now move into the conference finals wondering exactly what we are going to see. Hack-a-Howard? Hack-a-Bogut? Corey Brewer defending Stephen Curry. Or maybe Trevor Ariza taking on that task. Or even pesky old man Pablo Prigioni. That series is going to be a chess match for sure, and we may end up seeing Klay Thompson being the most important player in the series. As mentioned yesterday in our staff predictions column, Thompson is the leading 3-point shooter, accuracy-wise, of all the players still playing.
And that allows us to turn our attention to Kyle Korver (35 percent from downtown in the postseason) and the Atlanta Hawks, who went 3-1 against the Cavs during the regular season while using DeMarre Carroll as the primary defender on LeBron James. This site has already devoted considerable attention to the amount of money Carroll is earning during these playoffs, and whether it behooves him to sign a one-year contract so that he can reap the rewards of being a max player when the salary cap jumps to $90 million 13 months from now. If the Hawks are able to win this series (they are a 1 1/2 point favorite in Game 1, it will postpone Northeast Ohio's dream of ending its 51-year championship drought.)
All these plots and subplots were up for discussion in this podcast with Jody Oehler and Mike Jurecki on FOX Sports 910 in Phoenix. Enjoy.
Blake Griffin has taken his game to a new level in the playoffs. Griffin is averaging 25.4 points, 13.4 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.2 blocks per game. Griffin has recorded a double-double in all nine playoff games, including three triple-doubles. With Chris Paul out for the first two games of the series against the Houston Rockets, Griffin has also become more of a vocal leader in the huddle.
With that in mind, columnist Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops.com joined Yahoo! Sports Radio host Geoff Kethcum to discuss the rise of Griffin, Paul’s injury and the rest of the playoffs.
