Bryce Harper signed a record contract with the Philadelphia Phillies, the season has completely fallen apart for LeBron James and the Lakers, and Kyler Murray darted up draft boards at the NFL combine despite interview sessions that were reportedly less than stellar.
Those are the chief topics sports editor Josh Smith, city editor Allen Etzler and host Greg Swatek discuss on this week’s episode of Just Another Sports Podcast.
Were the Phillies smart to lock in for 13 years and $330 million with Harper? Does his signing the richest contract in baseball history significantly alter the balance of the National League East or change the fortunes for the Washington Nationals that much? What will happen with the Lakers now that it seems likely they will miss the playoffs? And is taking Murray with the No. 1 overall pick the no-brainer selection of the upcoming NFL draft?
Plus, Greg shares his experience behind the scenes at ESPN’s popular program, Pardon The Interruption.
