Then (24:00): Checking in with the Celtics, dying on a Kyrie hill, and worrying about Al Horford. From there (32:00): Rounding out the Lakers/AD conversation with some realism, addressing the Pacers and Clippers, and Knicks ownership. At the end (51:00): A sample of listener coaching memories that could help the Chicago Bulls, haunting high school football memories, and a shoutout to sonographers all over the world.
