Shoot 3s and Win Championships

A tip of the cap to Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. That makes four titles in the last eight seasons and seven overall. That and his first Finals MVP should put the legacy talk to bed. Klay Thompson ethered Memphis Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. for something that happened during the regular season. Jayson Tatum may be the Boston Celtics' best player. But he is far from the Kobe Byant replica he fancied himself to be. The latest Chicago Bulls rumor finally brings some positive news while Atlanta Hawks management is pumping the breaks on rumors of sweeping changes. How will Christian Wood getting traded from the Houston Rockets to the Dallas Mavericks impact the trade market this summer? Apparently, nobody wants to pick after the first three selections in the June 23 NBA Draft.

On the NFL side, second-year quarterback Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears wrapped an up-and-down mandatory three-day minicamp. Will the front office do more to surround him with weapons? They could always try to flip disgruntled EDGE Robert Quinn for a pass-catcher. The Bears joined the Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, and Washington Football Team in being fined for excessive hitting in offseason workouts. Chicago (this offseason) and Dallas (next offseason) both lost practices. The New Orleans Saints revealed their new alternate helmets. New York Jets rookie and 10th-overall pick, Garrett Wilson, got a reality check during his appearance on Ryan Clark's "The Pivot". Deshaun Watson's camp is anticipating severe punishment from the league as the result of his 24 lawsuits for sexual misconduct.

'This is Still Going 7 Games'

'This is Still Going 7 Games'

This episode of Triple Zeros kicks off by updating the latest buzz around the Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks. The Rudy Gobert rumors took a big blow with a report of the core expected to be back including Nikola Vucevic. But we did get an interesting nugget about their free agency plans. The Hawks have been linked to Utah Jazz center as well as Detroit Pistons forward, Jerami Grant. Will they move John Collins? Will Bogdan Bogdanovic's knee hold up after another surgery? Zooming out, Stephen Curry put on a Herculean performance in Game 4. But he needs his co-stars to start co-starring going forward. Where will the next Boston Celtics or Golden State Warriors come from? Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns are negotiating in public. And if Phil Knight's money is not good enough, who's is?

On the NFL side, Chicago Bears quarterback, Justin Fields, has both impressed and struggled in camp. While that is expected, the team should do this one thing to help him out this season. Former Bears and new Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman, Akiem Hicks, took a shot at the quarterback history in Chicago. Man, was he spot on. Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp just secured the bag this offseason. Cleveland Browns quarterback, Deshaun Watson, is facing yet another allegation. That makes 24 now. Lamar Jackson's contract situation has devolved into a one-sided PR battle. Wal-Mart's money is better than Nike's apparently.

My Spida-Sense is Tingling

This episode of Triple Zeros wonders if the Donovan Mitchell-Rudy Gobert era has run its course for the sixth-seeded Utah Jazz. Then, could Gobert make sense for a Chicago Bulls team that is sliding and has clear weaknesses? The Atlanta Hawks have won five straight to take over the eight-seed -- no team wants to face them in the postseason. Kevin Durant is right about the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder having to retire his number, you cannot tell the story of either organization without mentioning him. Both Los Angeles teams have dealt with injuries but the Lakers are sliding while the Clippers have done better than expected. And Zion Williamson's workout videos come off as more of a demo reel than a notice to the New Orleans Pelicans front office.

Switching over to the NFL, the new overtime rules aren't bad but it is good that they are keeping it to the postseason (for now). Indianapolis Colts owner, Jim Irsay lit into Carson Wentz but that is nothing compared to what is being alleged about Washington Commanders owner, Daniel Snyder regarding ticket sales. Bruce Arians may or may not have been made to step away from the sidelines, but he leaves an indelible mark that the league is still trying to emulate through rules changes. The Los Angeles Rams have signed Bobby Wagner to a big deal begging the question, once again, is the salary cap real? Finally, Pittsburgh Steelers HC Mike Tomlin proved once again why he is a certain host's favorite NFL head coach.

'Who...the Jets?'

'Who...the Jets?'

In this episode of Triple Zeros, Udonis Haslem let Jimmy Butler know exactly how what would happen if they had to come to blows during a recent Miami Heat loss. Any talk of the Memphis Grizzlies being better without Ja Morant because they have a great record (17-2) without him is missing the big picture. They're also just flat-out wrong. Patrick Beverley has had more of a positive impact on Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves than a former teammate who is still bumping heads with people. Whether or not you agreed with his stance, Kyrie Irving stood firm and has outlasted what devolved into a war of words with politicians. The rest of the East should be on notice. It isn't a surprise that the Los Angeles Lakers are guaranteed their first losing season in three years. It is disappointing, though.

On the NFL side, Tyreek Hill goes from the Kansas City Chiefs to the Miami Dolphins and made it very clear he wasn't considering the New York Jets despite rumors. On top of that, there is some buzz that Tom Brady could try to force his way down to South Beach after his 40-day retirement brought him back to Tampa. Could a riff with head coach Bruce Arians be the reason? The Cleveland Browns introduced Deshaun Watson and it went just as you would expect with the focus now back on the league and any possible suspension. On a related note, while there may be some interest with soon-to-be former Browns QB Baker Mayfield, teams are smart not to pony up draft capital just yet. That includes the Carolina Panthers who have also been linked to Arizona Cardinals passer Kyler Murray.

'Stop Disrespecting Me, Bro'

'Stop Disrespecting Me, Bro'

The NFL is bracing for what many call the best weekend in pro football, the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Derrick Henry is back and starting this weekend. But do the Tennesse Titans have enough firepower to keep up with Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals? Can Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers finally overcome his 0-3 history against a San Francisco 49ers team that might be the best-coached outfit in football? Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills have rediscovered an actual running game. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs have rediscovered their balance too, though, and the difference could be the experience. That's why it would be foolish to count out Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Los Angeles Rams. Aaron Donald probably disagrees.

Then, as the Baltimore Ravens fire their long-time DC following an injury-riddled season, the New York Giants have hired a general manager, and while the Houston Texans want teams to want Josh McCown as bad as they do. 

On the NBA side, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons need to make amends, there is no better fit for each other. Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers need to stop their rumored trade talk too but for entirely different reasons. Kyrie Irving's return would make the Brooklyn Nets the favorites if they could be guaranteed health and that James Harden was fully bought in (instead of eyeing a partnership with Embiid). Also, the Chicago Bulls will take a hit but should be able to survive Lonzo Ball's absence and, don't look now, but the Atlanta Hawks are getting hot again.
