We have a special one this week as we welcome in Milwaukee Bucks forward, Bobby Portis. His NBA journey is really incredible and we're excited to share it. Topics include: growing up in Arkansas and attending The University of Arkansas, how The Milwaukee Bucks pulled together their recent impressive win-streak, why having a star like Giannis Antetokounmpo can lead to no-drama environment, why the media overlooks The Bucks sometimes, what he's learned from Giannis, how The Bucks love to play "random basketball," what makes Jrue Holiday such a generational defensive player, debating which block was better - Giannis' block or LeBron's block, his favorite Brook Lopez story, Bobby's very unique story of how he wound up on The Bucks, how Bobby had to overcome his image that developed in Chicago after his "fight" with Nikola Mirotic in practice, JJ shares a story about getting into it with Hedo Türkoğlu in Orlando, why coach Bud loves Bobby so much, why Bobby should be in the conversation for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award, what he learned from last year's series against The Boston Celtics
