  1. ESPN lost money on the NBA bubble. you didn’t need 3 announcera during the game and a sideline reporter. had several writers breaking rumors and doing an inside the bubble documentary. Stan Fat Gundy eats like a horse.

  2. D1 basketball is abysmal. Obviously, due to the 1 and done. But what does that say about how bad the NBA has become over the last 15 to 20 years that so many kids can go to the NBA after a couple of semesters in college and get drafted in the 1st round? And then a lot of them actually play and star on their teams. It’s an exhausting topic. I dont get it. And I’m sure the social justice messaging will be nauseating anyway. That 30 for 30 on the Big East a few years ago, the one on Duke, Len Bias, and a couple of others really didn’t do current college basketball any favors.
