Tim Capstraw is the radio color analyst for the Brooklyn Nets and former head basketball coach at Wagner College for 10 seasons. I was always a fan of the "Capper" since he came onto the Nets radio broadcast in 2002, but it was when I worked with the Nets in 2007-08 that I got the chance to know him as a friend. Tim comes on the show today to talk about the 2017 NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, LeBron James, Steph Curry, Jason Kidd, coaching and broadcasting, and much more. Check out this episode!
Matt talks about his overwhelming need to be on top of the news at all times during the Donald Trump Presidency, the current media boom, the NBA Playoffs, Overcast, and the Amazon Echo Show. Check out this episode!
Myles Garrett was drafted Number One in the 2017 NFL Draft. Garrett's older brother is Sean Williams, who was drafted in the first round of the 2007 NBA Draft.

Sean Williams will tell you - for at least this season - that he does not expect to be called by his birth-given name. Perhaps in year number two.
"My name isn't Sean Williams anymore; it's rook," said the Nets 2007 first-round draft pick, referring to the shortened word for rookie.
"And rook has to do whatever anybody says. So rook has to go get towels for people to take showers and rook has to get up because somebody else doesn't have a seat on the bus."
And right before each road trip, "rook" has to get the Popeye's chicken for the team's bus ride to the airport.
