Welcome in Slumpbusters! On today's episode Kyle and Ju-Ju take on the biggest breaking news from the NBA, College Football and the NFL. Enjoy our predictions and speculation surrounding a very active sports week.
The sports weekend was buzzing after a couple popular internet target added cannon fodder to the arsenal. Patrick Mahomes brother Jackson, of TikTok fame, came under fire for an inappropriate TikTok at the Chiefs-Washington game. Washington deemed the game in tribute of the late Sean Taylor, painting Taylor's retired number in a VIP section of the stadium. Jackson, purposefully or not, decided to post a video of him dancing on the numbers. Was the Twitter outrage justified?
The second target of scorn this weekend was Seahawks safety Jamaal Adams. Adams made history by becoming the highest paid Safety in NFL history a year removed from being acquired for a huge haul by Seattle. Adams had a very memable moment when a potentially game altering interception bounced off his facemask in the Seattle-Pittsburgh game. Does Adams deserve this criticism of his game?
We transition our talks in the National Basketball Association with our next segment. Ben Simmons surprised many when he showed up Philadelphia's training camp, albeit late. Simmons has been very vocal about his desire to play anywhere besides Philadelphia. Things escalated when a disinterested Simmons was told to leave 76ers practice by head coach Doc Rivers. This came after Simmons refused to participate in a drill Rivers asked him multiple times to join. Teammate Joel Embiid added gasoline to the fire with his post-practice press conference. What is the next steps between Philly and Simmons? Who will trade for the all-star point guard?
We do a quick recap of college football before going NFL. Ed Orgeron just two seasons after winning a National Title at LSU will not be returning to Baton Rouge in 2022. This news broke after a scathing article with multiple sources was released by the Athletic. Who will be the next Tigers head football coach? Kyle Ledbetter correctly called the Purdue upset of Iowa, hear his thoughts and gloats of victory. Also, what is weirder to bring to a football game, a golf ball or a full bottle of yellow mustard? We discuss!
We end by giving our NFL Week 7 Preview, Enjoy!
