  • 322 - EP 251 - BOB RYAN on the NFL, MLB Playoffs & the start of the NBA Season.

    As the NBA kicks off their 2021/2022 regular season, who better to preview it with us than BOB RYAN, from the Boston Globe. 

    It would be unfair, however, to restrict a man like Mr.Ryan to simply one sport as we dedicate the first half of the show to the red hot Boston Red Sox, Major League Baseball's playoffs and some NFL talk.

    We end the show with a lengthy chat on the NBA. We go over who we think some of the title contenders could be or rather - has anything changed from last year?

    The three discuss the LA Lakers new team, Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns, the Ben Simmons situation in Philadelphia, Kyrie Irving's impact on the Brooklyn Nets and the intriguing Chicago Bulls & Miami Heat.
