In This Episode: Richard thinks Devin Booker could be awwww-esome and needs to start moving like a future face of the league. Cristiano Ronaldo shows why he's atop the athlete influencer Mount Rushmore, but there's still a name Richard thinks people can't forget. Finally, the Sports Gap lays out the Blueprint for making soccer, sorry football, a more popular sport in North America but not before remembering to give the Leotard GOAT, Simone Biles, her flowers.

S2E2 Oxymorons like Poor Stanford, Hall of Fame Fans and All That Utah Jazz
12:55
Richard Jefferson points out a few oxymorons in the sports news cycle including Poor Stanford having to cut 11 sports and the Utah Jazz on top of the NBA - in more ways than one. We also make the case for Drake to go to the Hall of Fame and settle this year's MVP debate once and for all by making the case for Stephen Curry, Nikola Jokic, and Lebron James.
