In this episode, Wellington and Savon discuss thoughts on Kyler Murray’s extension and Julio Jones agreeing to a 1-year deal in Tampa Bay and how this elevates their offense. They also discuss James Harden’s 2-year deal with Philly, him taking a pay cut and the rumors of a Jaylen Brown-KD mega-trade. Finally, they review Joey Bada$$’ 2000 album, this being an album of the year contender, Ne-Yo’s Self-Explanatory and India Shawn’s Before We Go (Deeper); along with reviewing DVSN’s “If I Get Caught” and Rory’s single “Not Me” feat. Raahiim and Shantel May.
In the second half, they review High Flying Bird, the 2019 sports drama film directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film stars Andre Holland, Zazie Beetz, Melvin Gregg and Sonja John. They dive into how this film was an engrossing look at professional sports and sees Steven Soderbergh continue to test the limits of new filmmaking technology. They also discuss this film being shot entirely on an iPhone 8, it being Soderbergh’s second film to be shot on an iPhone and this movie being immersed in the economics and sociology of the NBA.
