Juneteenth day, Discuss Paul for Beal trade, Draymond opt out, Sweet Lou retirement & UFC Vegas 75
We did the podcast on Juneteenth day, a very important holiday. We started with NBA stories like the big Chris Paul for Bradley Beal trade. We dug into the Draymond opt out and impending free agency, Lou Williams retirement announcement and Ja Morant's 25 game suspension. We broke down the UFC Vegas 75 card and previewed next week's card from Jacksonville!
The NBA world was rocked with this big trade between the Phoenix Suns and the Washington Wizards with guards Chris Paul and Bradley Beal switching teams. There was big news out of San Fran as Draymond Green opted out of his 27.5-million-dollar 1 year deal with Golden State to become a free agent. It will be interesting to see what kind of offers the 4-time champion gets! Lou Williams one of the best bench role players in NBA history announced his retirement from the NBA after a 17-year career. Finally with talk about the association we discussed the 25-game suspension handed down to Ja Morant for conduct detrimental to the league for posting himself waving a guy around.
We did a comprehensive break down of UFC Vegas 75 the featured an incredibly entertaining main event. Jared "Tha Killa Gorilla" Cannonier set a record for significant strikes landed on Marvin Vettori in an epic Middleweight battle at nearly 250 strikes. There were a lot of good performances from top to bottom on this card. Unfortunately, two fights were very poorly handled by the referees and one of them will be under investigation by the athletic commission. One ref is accused of severely screwing up a fight and being under the influence while doing so. The other referee had two huge errors in judgement on one fight and has been singled out for his mistakes. We previewed next weekends card that will take place in Jacksonville, Florida. The main event there is a great Featherweight battle between Josh Emmett and Ilia Topuria. We highlighted the top fights on the card and gave some predictions.
We finished looking ahead to the NBA Draft that takes place this Thursday in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center. We went over the consensus top ten lottery picks and the teams that are selecting them. We also showcased a few top Canadian prospects that are expected to be drafted or work out for teams over the summer.
