'Welcome Back, NBA!'
In this episode of Triple Zeros: The NBA regular season tipped off and Giannis Antetokounmpo and the reigning champion Milwaukee Bucks took it to Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets. The Ben Simmons saga doesn't seem close to ending as Philadelphia 76ers president Daryl Morey said he was ready to wait "years" for a resolution. The league also continued the celebration by announcing its 75th Anniversary Team. On the NFL side, the Cleveland Brown out-grinded the Denver Broncos with Case Keenum and D'Ernest Johnson doing the heavy lifting. It also seems like Pete Carroll is just paying lip service about checking in with popular free-agent quarterbacks after the head coach mentions Cam Newton but opts for Jacob Eason. The Miami Dolphins are supposedly in on trading for embattled Houston Texans quarterback, Deshaun Watson. And the feds have gotten involved with the Washington Football Team's e-mails.

Just There So He Won't Get Fined
In this episode of Triple Zeros: Are Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers paper tigers? Their win over the Philadelphia Eagles wasn't that convincing. Jon Gruden resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders and Adam Schefter caught a stray, but nothing on the Washington Football Team. Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur dropped a quote that got a lot of fanfare but it was just the second-best quote this week. And of course, NFL Week 6 picks! Things switch over to the NBA as Ben Simmons has arrived in Philly, but does he intend on being a good soldier for the 76ers? Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving went live on Instagram to clear the air. He did not and still win not play until further notice. Plus, Dwayne Wade's son Zaire signs with the Jazz's G-League affiliate and opening night picks!

No Fangio of Harbaugh
In this episode of Triple Zeros, Russell Wilson is in danger of missing his next start for the first time in his NFL career. He banged his right hand on the helmet of Los Angeles Rams defender Aaron Donald on Thursday Night Football. Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio had some pointed words for Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh after the latter made sure to break a league record at the end of their blowout victory. Elsewhere, Urban Meyer is flaming out just like many thought, and possibly even worse after a video of him at a bar surfaced this week. On the NBA side, Toronto is imposing strict COVID restrictions that could lead to jail time if violated. Kyrie Irving is officially listed as "out/ineligible" for the Brooklyn Nets first home game as he remains against getting vaccinated as Andrew Wiggins said the decision to get the shot wasn't really his. Ben Simmons is "taking note" of the fines levied against him by the Philadelphia 76ers and more!

In this episode of Triple Zeros: Reacting to Thursday Night Football and setting up the Week 4 slate. Among the biggest storylines are Andy Reid's returning to Philadelphia as the Chiefs take on the Eagles for the first time since 2017 and Tom Brady's return to Foxboro as his Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. Plus the Chicago Bears move to Arlington is big news but secondary to needing a win this weekend as Matt Nagy (and several other coaches) could be feeling the heat. Things turn to the NBA as media day on Monday gave us a ton of soundbites and controversy. Ben Simmons still wants out of Philly and Joel Embiid has thoughts. Karl-Anthony Towns sounds tired of it all, and Zion Williamson insists everything is good down in New Orleans. All of that and much more!

October 1, 2021
In this episode of Triple Zeros, recapping Thursday Night Football where the Carolina Panthers beat the Houston Texans 24-9 but also lost Christian McCaffrey to a hamstring injury. How long is yet to be determined. Tua Tagovailoa will miss at least one start while Chicago Bears rookie Justin Fields will make his starting debut against the Cleveland Browns. The Detroit Lions doing Detroit Lions things and Rob Gronkowski cleared the air about his study habits. And of course, picks! Things switch over to some quick NBA talk as Ben Simmons isn't the only star seeking a new situation. Oddly enough, the Minnesota Timberwolves are rumored to be interested but could be dealing with their own disgruntled star player in Karl-Anthony Towns. The situation between Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans is also deteriorating rapidly. Could any of these players be on the move soon?

Need a Re-Do in Week 2
In this episode of Triple Zeros: Lamenting a rough Week 1 of NFL picks, stumping for Taylor Heinicke to get his chance, comparing Daniel Jones to Josh Allen, and previewing the Week 2 slate that is overrun with juicy storylines. Among them, Mac Jones vs Zach Wilson, Tyrod Taylor returning to Cleveland, and Patrick Mahomes' Kansas City Chiefs taking on Lamar Jackson's Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football. Of course, there is an attempt to atone for last week's bomb with better picks for Week 2. Things switch over to the NBA as former forward Richard Jefferson says Kevin Durant's Brooklyn Nets are superior to LeBron James' Los Angeles Lakers. Also, who will be the Suns/Hawks of this coming season?

Baltimore's Backfield Breaks
This episode of Triple Zeros starts by recapping the Cowboys-Buccaneers opener on Thursday Night Football making the Antonio Brown-Julian Edelman comparison. Cincinnati Bengals rookie Ja'Marr Chase made an interesting admission (and tweet) following his lackluster preseason. The Baltimore Ravens also saw their entire running back room be decimated in a matter of days prompting them to sign Latavius Murray to the active roster and Le'Veon Bell to the practice squad. And we had to get into Cam Newton's sit-down with his father, Cecil. All of that plus Week 1 NFL picks and more!

Familiar Face, New Place (J.J. Stankevitz Pt.3)
J.J. Stankevitz returns to Triple Zeros, this time, covering the Indianapolis Colts for Colts.com. We get into how important the 'draft-and-develop' method has led to such a deep and talented roster. He also talks about the anticipated impact Head Coach Frank Reich will have on Carson Wentz this season. Then we get into how a defense with no big names outside of Darius Leonard and DeForest Buckner can be so stout more often than not. He was also asked what it would take to get Chicago Bears backup quarterback Nick Foles down to Indy. Be sure to follow him on Twitter (@JJStankevitz) and at Colts.com!

'In AK We Trust'
This week's Triple Zeros talks QBs with Jameis Winston and Teddy Bridgewater being named the staters for their respective teams. We also got word first-overall pick Trevor Lawrence will start come Week 1, but Trey Lance and Justin Fields will not. Also discussed is whether or not the Chicago Bears-Tennessee Titans game should even be played with the latter missing nine personnel including Head Coach Mike Vrabel to health and safety protocols. The discussion turns to the NBA Nerlens Noel is suing Klutch Sports for lost earnings while the agency is countersuing for withheld commissions. Kevin Love is also heading towards a buyout apparently. We wonder how he would fit on the Hawks but it's presumed he will end up with LeBron James, college teammate Russell Westbrook, and the Los Angeles Lakers. Finally, Josh takes a moment to appreciate what the Chicago Bulls front office has done flipping the roster while maintaining flexibility. All that and more!

Rookie QB Bias
This episode of Triple Zeros starts with some NFL talk with Week 2 of the preseason on tap, Urban Meyer doing the most, and Mitchell Trubisky facing the Bears. Speaking of, their rookie quarterback, Justin Fields caught a lot of flack for doing more than the other rookies. Things switch over to the NBA with the schedule being released on Friday. We go over the opening week and Christmas day games, and first-overall pick Cade Cunningham's choice for the G.O.A.T. Plus more Bears, Bulls, and Hawks updates.

Starting with a tip of the cap to Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks for winning the NBA Finals, then touching on the best and worst of free agency and the draft.

Role Players Play Better at Home
In this episode of Triple Zeros: The Milwaukee Bucks have knotted up the NBA Finals, but they haven't completely seized the momentum from the Phoenix Suns...yet. All eyes should be on Chris Paul after his poor performance in Game 4. Also, is Giannis Antetokounmpo the best player in the NBA? He's certainly playing like he thinks he so. Elsewhere around the Association, Team USA Men's Basketball lost Bradley Beal and Jerami Grant to health and safety protocols, but it was the reactions of Ja Morant and Trae Young to being left off that were most surprising. On the NFL side, Tome Brady reportedly played the entire 2020-21 season -- that ended in his seventh Super Bowl victory -- with a torn MCL. Travis Kelce pulled a fast one on all of us, Jalen Ramsey talks time under Tom Coughlin, and so much more!

The NBA's Biggest Win
This episode of Triple Zeros is heavy on NBA Finals talk as Josh goes into the Milwaukee Bucks chances now that they're down 2-0. He also gives props to Giannis Antetokounmpo for toughing it out through his hyperextended knee. That inevitably led to some Khris Middleton slander but also an acknowledgment that the series is far from over. On the other side, Devin Booker went off in Game 2 after Chris Paul's Game 1 explosion. Can the Phoenix Suns take a game on the road or will the Bucks hold serve at home? Elsewhere around the Association, Chauncey Billups' hiring by the Portland Trailblazer is causing Damian Lillard to catch flack from fans mad over sexual assault allegations from 1997. Could that drive Lillard to find a way out of Portland? Also, three Team USA Select members have gone down with injury and Tokyo is on lockdown due to COVID with less than two weeks until the Olympics are set to begin. Lastly, in a quick-hitting segment on the NFL, catching up on the latest in the Aaron Rogers-Green Bay Packers drama and N'Keal Harry demands a trade (yeah, ok bud). That and much more!

Trae Young is a Bona Fide Superstar
In this episode, Josh says it's time we acknowledge Trae Young as a superstar. He also thinks Young's Atlanta Hawks can beat Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. It's the same thing for Devin Booker's Phoenix Suns despite Chris Paul's return throwing off their mojo in Game 3. He doubts the ability of the Clippers to overcome yet another 0-2 deficit, but Game 3 was a good start. Then things switch to non-NBA Playoffs news as several head coaching vacancies were filled. On the NFL front, the league approved the return of alternate helmets for throwback uniforms, the Pittsburgh Steeler cut guard David DeCastro, and so much more!

That leads to talk about properly appreciating Paul George and Donovan Mitchell for their efforts. Things shift to the weekend's pair of Game 7s (Bucks-Nets on Saturday and Hawks-Sixers on Sunday) before switching over to the NFL. That's when things go back to a story about the city of Las Vegas having to go into emergency funds for the second time to make payments on the Raiders stadium.
