Another weekend has wrapped up in the NBA, and on today's show we talk about the triumphant return of Reggie Jackson, PG options you could cut to make room, and some other possible 12er adds from the last few games. We then play another edition of Can We Make Slim Look Stupid and conclude the week with a look at tonight's games and our 30-point challenge picks.
Whew! What a heckuva way to close out the regular season. The Crimson Tide smashed the Florida Gators 54-16 en route to their 26th SEC Championship, as well as their third such title in a row. As a just reward for a confetti filled Saturday, the Tide was announced as the first overall seed in the College Football Playoff and will get to lock horns with the Washington Huskies back in the Georgia Dome on December 31st. Even though players (and a certain producer) are busy with exams, the college football world continues to spin with rumors of Lane Kiffin moving on, and Bama QBs looking to transfer. We'll have all of the latest news and more when we welcome William "Redfish" Barger onto the program during the first hour, and we'll also have some audio with Rob Sellers, who covers the Houston Cougars. The action starts at 7 with Drew DeArmond, William "Redfish" Barger and Thomas Watts. Be there or be Auburn.
3:00 - Draymond Green, Defensive Player of the Year (talking about those two blocks).
5:30 - Voter fatigue and how it relates to Stephen Curry’s MVP candidacy.
6:00 - People hate things that are good for them.
7:45 - Kevin Durant’s better-than-advertised defense for the Warriors, especially from the weak side.
13:20 - Will the Warriors have the best offense of all time once the season is said and done? We compare them to the 2002-03 Utah Jazz, a team that somehow included Karl Malone, John Stockton, Mark Jackson (yup, that Mark Jackson), and Deshawn Stevenson (looooool, what a wacky, strange locker room that must have been). Also, shoutout Jarron Collins!
17:00 - Bram makes a horrible Vince Vaughn reference and then refuses to edit anything out.
19:00 - After Ivan mentions Zaza Pachulia, Bram somehow goes on a very long, profanity-laced dive down the rabbit hole of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s wikipedia page. FEEL FREE TO SKIP THIS PART, I ONLY KEPT IT IN FOR ALL Y’ALL MOVIE/HISTORY BUFFS OUT THERE.
22:37 - “This is definitely getting edited out. Our history of the Gabor family.” “That’s what you think!”
23:00 - Okay, back to Warriors. Damian Jones = next A’mare Stoudemire?
28:00 - Will Damian Jones start taking wine baths? Somehow, this leads Bram to make Ivan look up the term “boofing.” Hilarity ensues.
32:30 - Oh right, tomorrow’s game! Warriors take on the Rockets tonight.
33:45 - Wondering what a D’Antoni/Curry match in NYC would have looked like.
40:00 - What’s the bigger challenge? Incorporating a new star player (Durant), or incorporating a new offensive system (D’Antoni)?
43:00 - #ArrogantSZN is in full swing.

This week on the Fantasy Football Mastermind Edge podcast, host Michael Nazarek and co-host Chris Rito offer select Picks to Click and Flick for Week #14 of the 2016 NFL season. Rito also offers his one-hit wonders for kicker and defense. The guys will also cover all important NFL news items and injury notes that broke during the past week.
It wasn't a surprise that Malik Zaire chose to transfer but it was when WR Holmes and big man John Montelus chose the same option.
Jeremy and Matt recap the Mountain West title game which saw San Diego State defeat Wyoming 27-24 in a great rematch for the conference title. We focus in on the second half where a lot of action happened, and also where San Diego State committed a pair of turnovers which nearly allowed Wyoming to come back in this game.
The Aztecs performance this time around changed dramatically on offense which saw the running game nearly doubled their rushing output from Rashaad Penny and Donnel Pumphrey and that played a huge role in San Diego State winning their second-straight conference title.
After discussing the title game we dive into the seven bowl games within the Mountain West which ended up being better than initially thought since Houston is now in the Las Vegas Bowl.
Chris Axmann of the Almighty Baller Podcast Network talks what "The Process" looks like in other industries and pop culture. The guys debate who in the NBA might be tanking their job right now. Sam Hinkie walks the fine line between insanity and genius. Oh, and robots may be coming to take your children and your jobs.

We look at the NBA players of the past who inspired rule changes large and small in the latest episode of the Over and Back Classic NBA podcast.
Jason Mann and Rich Kraetsch discuss how 1930s pro basketball star Leroy Edwards inspired the 3-second rule, how the 1950s NBA dealt with superstar George Mikan and his Minneapolis Lakers dynasty by widening the paint, how Syracuse Nationals owner Danny Biasone's 24-second clock revolutionized the game, how the league tried to limit Wilt Chamberlain by further widening the lane and banning offensive interference, how backboard-destroyer Darryl Dawkins forced the NBA to switch to breakaway rims, how Charles Barkley and Mark Jackson inspired the five-second backdown rule, how the NBA tried to limit isolations because of Michael Jordan's late 1980s scoring dominance, how New York Knicks journeyman Trent Tucker change the way games are finished, and how Shaquille O'Neal's fierce dunks forced a change in basket reinforcement.
We also discuss the illegal defense rule changes in the early 2000s that eventually helped open up the game from iso-heavy basketball, the Hack-a-Shaq rule, Vince Carter trying to wear earbuds, Rajon Rondo defying the NBA on his headband logo, Caron Butler not being allowed to chew straws, Reggie Miller's leg kicks and more.
DFSR’s Doug Norrie and James Davis break down every game on the Week 13 NFL DFS slate. There’s a ton to discuss here with a bunch of solid matchups with high implied totals.

There's all of that and more in a full Week 13 breakdown.
