The Extra Points gang is ready for NFL schedule release day as Dave proclaims the NFL has taken over as the 365 days a year sport that everyone talks about.
The guys get right to it discussing Game 5 of the Penguins/Rangers series and Jacob Trouba’s questionable hit on Sidney Crosby. Eddie doesn’t think it was a dirty hit and disagrees with Dave. After Eddie gives his rant Dave says Rangers’ goalie Igor Shesterkin will never win a Stanley Cup but the Rangers will survive because of this cheap shot. Eddie is still upset about an overturned goal in Game 1 and that the hit on Crosby was a hockey play and calls the Penguins the whiniest team in the NHL. Eddie admits his girlfriend is not thrilled about this potential haircut as the series continues.
Next, the guys discuss last night’s NBA playoffs as the Bucks come back to beat the Celtics as Jrue Holiday’s impressive defense takes over; although Dave is more impressed with how Jrue spells his name. The NBA playoffs continue to be hard to predict as Memphis blows out the Warriors to keep their series going. As for tonight’s games Martin takes the Miami Heat to beat the Sixers in Game 6 and can’t imagine seeing Chris Paul having another bad game as the Suns look to close out the Mavericks.
The NBA announces they will be now giving out Postseason awards named after Magic Johnson and Larry Bird as well as Bob Cousy and Oscar Robertson. Dave thinks the NBA should take it a step further and name the divisions after legends. Sal thinks HBO’s Winning Time might have had an influence of doing this and they should also name a broken trophy after Jerry West. Then the guys discuss if the NFL did this which legends would you name the awards after?
With Tom Brady going to FOX Sports after he retires for a monster $375 million dollar deal will this change how you watch football. Plus, a trip on the Riverboat Casino to discuss who took the biggest risk this off-season; FOX Sports with Tom Brady, the Cleveland Browns trading for Deshaun Watson or Shailene Woodley breaking up with Aaron Rodgers. This leads to Dave pointing out the NFL really should come down hard and suspend Watson for a significant amount of games. While Sal says the Steelers might have taken the biggest risk by selecting Kenny Pickett with their first-round pick when no other team was going to take him.
Finally, the guys make their picks of the day as Shek likes the Toronto Maple Leafs to finally vanquish the Tampa Bay Lightning.
