NBA Offseason Frenzy Has Begun (AD to Lakers, NY/BK's Pursuit of KD, Draft, Rumors) Blues Win Cup, Yanks Questionable Trade? Mets Bullpen Implosion, Brooks Falls Short at US Open

The NBA Finals just ended, but the offseason is already proving that it's going to be wild and crazy as Episode 76 will provide the following:

The Anthony Davis trade to the Lakers. Who is the winner and loser of this deal?

Should the Knicks or Nets pursue Kevin Durant? What will the Knicks do on draft night?  Plus, the aftermath of Klay Thompson's injury and the future of the Warriors.

I'll recap the Blues historic Stanley Cup run. Does home ice/court/field matter in sports? The NHL Draft is Friday. Why the Devils and Rangers will be forever linked with who they select come Friday night?

The Yankees trade for another right-handed slugger. Why I disagree with the move? And why wasn't a starting pitcher involved instead?

The Mets bullpen continues to be inflammable. The latest debacle of relief futility, plus, their upcoming season defining road trip to Atlanta, Chicago (Cubs) and Philadelphia.

A recap of Gary Woodland's US Open victory over Brooks Koepka.

Former Co-host of The Final Word, J.D. on the Celtics, NBA Player Movement, NFL Hall of Fame, Jason Garrett & Yankees/Red Sox

It’s an honor to introduce to you my one time former co-host of our internet radio show, The Final Word, J.D. We hit on a variety of topics ranging from the state of the NBA regarding player movement (i.e. Anthony Davis, Kristaps Porzingis and Kyrie Irving) and the Boston Celtics. Our thoughts on the NFL Hall of Fame finalists, his beloved Dallas Cowboys and head coach, Jason Garrett. We wrap up discussing the Boston Red Sox with some talk about the Yankees and how they’re built to go up against the World Champs in 2019. It’s an in-depth and passionate discussion between two former colleagues that’ll bring you back to when you were sitting at a bar or in the barbershop chopping it up about sports. This is truly a podcast for the sports fan on this special edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 53)

Super Bowl LIII Recap, Rams Ineptitude, Edelman a HOF'er? (Really?), AD, KP, Kyrie & the NBA Trade Deadline. Harper & Machado Destination?

A champion has been crowned in the NFL, NBA players are ruling the roost and are we close to a decision on where Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are headed? Those are some of the topics I’ll discuss on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The NFL season went out on a whimper as the Patriots defeat the Rams in the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history. I’ll recap the good (not much), the bad (quite a bit) and the ugly (i.e. Sean McVay and Jared Goff) as this was a game to forget. A lot of talk has been made about Super Bowl MVP, Julian Edelman on whether he’s bound for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I touched on this two weeks ago (Episode 49) and I’ll revisit this again as to why he is NOT going to Canton. I’ll wrap up my Super Bowl thoughts on the commercials, the halftime performance and the who IS going to Canton for the Class of 2019. The NBA had a fascinating week of the court with all of the buzz generated by Anthony Davis (trade request), Kristaps Porzingis (trade request granted) and Kyrie Irving (trade in the works?) as we’re just a few days from the trade deadline. Players are more in control of their fate than ever! I have tons to say about this, so you’ll get an unfiltered view on why this is bad for the league? Lastly, have we gotten any closer as to where the top two superstars on the free agent market (Bryce Harper & Manny Machado) will end up? There have been talks out in San Diego as the Padres throw their hat in the ring, but at least for one player, he may have come to a decision as to where he’ll go. You’ll get all of that, and a little more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 52)

Super Bowl Preview, MLB Hall of Famers/NFL HOF's Up Next, Who Cares About The Pro Bowl/NBA/NHL All-Star Games?

Let all of the hype begin as Super Bowl Week has arrived. Delivering chock full of nuggets, storylines and much more on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. Both teams have descended to the ATL where over the next six days, you’ll be up to your ears in everything dealing with the big game on Sunday. Don’t despair because here is your early take on what the key matchups will be, do the Patriots have a significant advantage because of their experience? Will the master Bill Belichick school the student Sean McVay? What will be the legacies for both Belichick and Tom Brady, win or lose? What about McVay? And finally, my prediction as to who will hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy as this years champion in the NFL! There are actually other things going on besides sports biggest event. I’ll get into the freshly minted inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Why we’ll NEVER see the likes of Mariano Rivera EVER? My feelings on why Mike Mussina is NOT a Hall of Famer? And while I’m on the subject, I’ll go through the list of finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which will be announced later in the week and share who’s a lock and who’s not worthy? Plus, you have the three All-Star Games over the next three weeks for the NFL, NHL and NBA. Does it matter? Does anyone really care? And with Anthony Davis requesting a trade out of New Orleans, what teams will be involved? Will it happen before the trade deadline on February 7th? You’ll get my opinion on those questions, and lots more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 51)
