(WHTM) — Ben Simmons is finally out of the Sixers organization, and Philadelphia now welcomes James Harden after one of the biggest trades in recent NBA history. Does Harden make the 76ers a NBA title contender?
Plus, can Micah Shrewsberry become the winningest coach in Penn State Men’s Basketball history? Maybe that’s not so far fetched. More than that, as the dust settles on Penn State football’s coaching carousel and signing day surprises… is this team built to win a championship in the next two seasons?
Finally, the podcast breaks down our Super Bowl reactions. The Rams win feels expected, and frankly, feels boring. Is Matt Stafford now a Hall of Fame candidate? Did anyone care about the game? It was a lackluster ending to an incredible NFL playoffs.
