The Philadelphia 76’ers will be stepping foot on the court soon enough, and they’ll also be heading to the playoffs to face some stellar talent in the NBA. This week, we talked about their future in detail with Victor Williams from The Philly Special Podcast. Might this team come back with an actual identity? We have some thoughts for you this week on the Table.
But first, we discussed our thoughts Portland Trailblazer star player, Damian Lillard, who said recently he would not play or participate if the NBA season resumes if the Blazers don’t have a “true opportunity” to make the playoffs. (approx. 5:05)
We then talked about long-term concerns for the Eagles in terms of personnel on the field. What positions should we be concerned about as we look in the years to come? (approx. 11:15)
From there, we dove into whether or not we think we’ll see a baseball season this year given the current stalemate between Major League Baseball and the players union. (approx. 17:50)
On the Highbrow Segment this week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL front office put out a statement this past week concerning racial disparity and racial injustice. While this was seen by many as a tremendously hollow statement considering what the league went through regarding Colin Kaepernick’s silent kneeling protests during the National Anthem, could the NFL – or could a team – help resurrect the NFL’s image on race relations if Colin Kaepernick was signed? (approx. 24:00)
This on the Lowbrow Segment, we’re doing “Cohost Questions” where we’ll ask each other two random questions that can be sports-related, personal or whatever. (approx. 40:40)
What we’re throwing down on the Table this week is a fantastic interview with Victor Williams from The Philly Special Podcast where we’ll dive into the future of this Sixers team as the playoffs approach. But first, we talk about the NBA’s reaction to the racial protests that have dominated the U.S. for well over a week. Then we talked about where that line in the sand is for Brett Brown to keep his job at the end of this season. Also, which Sixer will have benefitted the most from having this time off during the playoffs? How might their lack of a defined rotation play out during the postseason? All of this and much more this week on the Table! (approx. 50:00)
