Brooklyn's In The House! Knicks Come Up Short & NBA Free Agency Whirlwind, Yankees London Calling, Mets Sky Falling & More

Kicking off the first day of July with more fireworks than the Fourth as Episode 78 brings plenty of bottle rockets, booms and blasts with the following:

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving sign with the Brooklyn Nets. What does this mean for this upcoming season minus KD? The 2020-21 season? Also, I leave a small verbal note to the newly minted Nets fan.

The Knicks fall short of their pursuit of the two big guns. Why that’s not a bad thing? And why the contracts of the recent players they signed benefits for the short and long term? Also, James Dolan’s impact on why the Garden isn’t the ‘Mecca’ like it once was.

The Yankees bopped their way overseas to two large victories over their heated rivals. What’s the next step for this team as it heads into the All-Star Break and the trade deadline 30 days away?

The Mets are crawling into the All-Star Break after another gut-wrenching week. What the Mets have to look forward to, not only this week with the Yankees coming into their building, but for the remainder of the year if they want any relevance this summer?

NHL free agency has begun. Hear some of the trades taking place and what the Islanders need to do to take their team to the next level here during the shopping spree of procuring players.

Plus, some Wimbledon news and my Hero and Zero of the Week.

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)
