On today’s episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a deep dive into Luka Doncic’s $200+ million contract extension with the Dallas Mavericks. Luka is the next Face of the NBA and very clearly worth every penny that he’s set to earn, but it does set up an interesting conundrum for the Mavs moving forward. Should they be patient and look to cash in on another superstar in free agency a few years from now? Or, should they push all-in immediately given that Luka is arguably the best player in the world right now. So much will depend on what Dallas is able to do with the albatross commonly referred to as the Kristaps Porzingis contract. Later, the guys explain why they have a small problem with all of the sports media talking heads who continue to point out how old the 2021 Los Angeles Lakers roster is. Did you know that the Lakers key rotation players led by LeBron James are roughly the same age - or younger - than the rotation players on the 1998 Chicago Bulls led by Michael Jordan? If you're going to continue to make jokes about the 'old' Lakers, please keep that same energy for all NBA rosters. Finally, Jason explain why he's so high on the San Francisco 49ers heading into next season. Much of the conversation around the team is focused on the Jimmy Garoppolo-Trey Lance quarterback 'controversy', but take argues that we could easily see Lance be used in a Michael Vick-type role early on. People forget that Vick appeared in 8 games his rookie season before taking over as the starter, and that should serve as the template for Lance in The Bay.
