This is a busy time for the sports and entertainment world. The NBA playoffs are about to begin, the NFL Draft is less than two weeks away, and the last season of Succession is underway. On this week’s episode of The GoJo Podcast, Mike Golic Jr. and Brandon Newman discuss all this and more as they are joined by JJ Redick.
The episode kicks off by talking about all things Succession, but don’t worry, this is a spoiler-free zone. The duo then discusses the reports that the Arizona Cardinals are shopping the No. 3 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and give some helpful insights on what they would do in that spot. Finally, they talk about the Rudy Gobert situation with the Minnesota Timberwolves as they get ready for the play-in game and are joined by Redick who gives his opinion on this as well as the overall NBA playoffs. Redick talks about the difference between making jump from regular season to postseason, including how the value and intensity of every possession matters so much more in the playoffs.
JJ also said he sees the Celtics and Bucks as slightly above the 76ers in the East, while the Phoenix Suns are his favorites in the West. JJ also notes that on his The Old Man and the Three podcast, he voted for Giannis Antetokounmpo for MVP for his historical season.
