But from the front office perspective, since the player is valuable enough to be signed, are there circumstances under which they use?the player differently after signing to minimize injury at the cost of wins if number of losses don't affect your playoff situation (34:12)? Review - The Player (42:02).?MLBeard Challenge Day 53: Portland (43:40).?

    Today's word of the day is 'legend' as in we honor the legendary coach Don Shula following the news today of him dying at the age of 90. Now let's get into Michael Jordan and The Last Dance.

  • Recap: The Last Dance Part III & IV and NFL Draft (4/27)

    Today's word of the day is 'revisionist' as in revisionist history. Isiah Thomas used his time in The Last Dance to go on an apology tour of that 1991 season ender vs the Bulls.

We got to see a glimpse of what Dennis Rodman was like, but where is the all the juice! Michael Jordan said before the documentary that he wasn't going to look great... and he was right.
