It’s everyone’s favorite time of year! We’ve hit the quarter-season mark in the NFL, which means it’s time for the Nati Boys to present their quarter-season NFL awards. The guys also discuss Lavar Ball’s decision to pull his youngest son out of high school in order to home school him, and we reflect on the NBA’s changes to the All Star format. We preview UC’s and OSU’s upcoming matchups, and we pick on the Browns a little bit for not being very good at football. We give our upcoming NFL picks as Whitty tries to climb out of the cellar and gain some ground on the other guys. Finally, in honor of OJ’s recent release, we wrap the show up with a fantasy draft of the first things we would do upon being released from prison.
On today’s episode the Nati Boys podcast, we recap the Bengals victory over the shitty Browns, plus a few more NFL topics, including major injuries and the Patriots decade of dominance possibly being over. We also talk about the NCAA football weekend, and Mac puts Butch Jones officially on the hot seat. The NBA is almost back, and Lavar Ball is a man of the people. We promise we don’t make any “Juice is loose” puns when talking about OJ Simpson being released, and we end the show with MLB, closing out the Reds season, and making some playoff predictions. Enjoy the show!
Good morning and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. Today is National Chicken Wing Day, which is easily one of the top 3 greatest holidays of the year. Please celebrate responsibly. And if you’re eating hot wings, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before you wipe your eyes or use the restroom. That’s just a little pro tip from me. And while you’re getting mentally prepared for the fury you’re about to unleash on some chicken wings, check out today’s Wake Up With Whitty and let me know what you think.
Lavar’s son looked pretty impressive in his second Summer League game for the Lakers. He notched a triple-double after a pretty dismal first game ( a 2-15 shooting performance). Lonzo is a point guard in the true sense of the word; he’s a pass-first player with an ugly shot, that knows how to run the floor. His bounce-back in game 2 still wasn’t enough for the Lakers to get the win against the Celtics.
I normally pay a little attention to the Summer League, but this year it’s been must-watch TV for me as a Lakers fan. Here’s Lonzo’s highlights from his triple-double game; we’ll act like game 1 didn’t happen.
