GoJo Podcast: The Kings are off to a 2-0 lead, and Jalen Hurts has a massive new contract

Mike Golic Jr. is joined by his co-host Brandon Newman to discuss the NFL Draft, the NBA postseason and airplane etiquette.

The 2023 NBA Playoffs are underway, and we are less than 10 days away from the 2023 NFL Draft. This week’s headlines include a possible Draymond Green suspension for Game 3 against the Sacramento Kings, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts locking down a massive new contract and how many QBs we can expect to be drafted early in the first. Mike Golic Jr. and Brandon Newman discuss all this and more on the latest episode of the GoJo Podcast.

GoJo starts the podcast off talking about the Draymond Stomp Game as both he and Brandon provide their best guess for anticipated fallout. The duo then discusses the massive deal for Hurts and how they believe it will shape the future contracts for guys like Lamar Jackson, Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert. Staying on the topic of the NFL, Golic Jr. and Newman discuss conflicting reports about the draft and make their predictions for how many quarterbacks will be selected within the first four picks of the draft. Lastly, they discuss the Chinese basketball controversy, Jimbo Media beef and airplane etiquette.
