Pod: The NBA Offseason Begins, and the Phillies Are in the Hunt

What is going on in Camden?

The dog days of summer mean the focus of the sports world is on two things: baseball and NBA free agency.

This week, it’s Phillies talk followed by a rumination on the opening flurry of moves across the NBA, including a chat about what the Sixers have done and what they could do.

The rundown:

• John talks about his recent eye surgery while Joe waxes nostalgic about a football league that folded when he was two

• Joe expects entirely too much out of a spiked seltzer before somehow talking even more about the USFL in this week’s “What Are You Drinking?” (12:19)

• The Phillies have continued to play competent baseball for the most part; the guys talk about last weekend’s series against the Cardinals, the veracity of Nolan Arenado’s cycle, and whether it was appropriate for the team to honor Albert Pujols (14:44)

• NBA free agency is underway; the guys talk about the Brian Windhorst meme-inducing Rudy Gobert trade as well as Kevin Durant (31:39)

• Speaking of, should the Sixers go after KD? Plus, the moves they’ve already been reported to be making (37:01)

The guys are back to discuss the NBA investigation into the Sixers (5:28) and the rumors of Kevin Durant's potential interest in coming to Philadelphia (11:10).  Then, it's August, so it's time to talk Phillies (25:39) before segueing into a discussion of the respective team Halls/Walls of Fame (31:09) – including the Eagles' imminent enshrinement of Hugh Douglas – and the NBA's plan to honor the late Bill Russell (38:06).
