On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by taking a verbal flamethrower to Nikola Jokic and Karl-Anthony Towns. Jokic appears set to win his second consecutive NBA MVP award, and yet his Denver Nuggets are about to get swept out of the postseason by Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Through the first week of the NBA Playoffs, it's become painfully obvious that Jokic isn't the top-5 NBA player that analytics nerds would like us to believe. Not to be outdone, KAT has had more fouls than baskets in three of the four postseason games he's played thus far. Towns has looked mentally soft and physically clumsy so far against the Memphis Grizzlies, and things culminated on Thursday night when the Timberwolves blew multiple 20+ point leads en route a crushing Game 3 loss. It was an embarrassing night all around for these two All-NBA big men. Later, Pro Football Network NFL Draft analyst Tony Pauline swings by to discuss why Georgia edge rusher Travon Walker has seemingly shot up draft boards as of late, why his top rated player – Oregon edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux – could easily fall out of the top 5 picks, where top-rated cornerback Sauce Gardner could end up if the New York Jets don’t take him as many have predicted, the likelihood that quarterbacks get overdrafted, why he’s lower on Cincinnati quarterback Desmond Ridder that most in the draft community, why he believes Notre Dame superstar safety Kyle Hamilton could switch positions to linebacker in the NFL, and much more!
