LTSSP 002 - 'All About Zion's Shoe (And Other Completely Safe Stories)' by Robert Kraft
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Tommy and Justin get heavily into all things sports controversy while talking about the serious mistakes of Robert Kraft (most of them being Florida), the deeper issues behind the problem with Zion's shoe (maybe pay college players?), the difference between the NBA and NFL drafts vs the MLB and NHL drafts (some drafts matter more), what's next for Kevin Durant, trusting the process / tanking as a strategy (and is that fair to fans???), Ron Artest / Metta's drinking habits on the Bulls, the Alliance of American Football team names (uh Birmingham Iron?? rlly?), Jordan vs LeBron, as well as the college football playoffs. 

At no point do Tommy and Justin stoop below their usual level in this podcast.*

*Except there's just one brief moment - you'll know it when you hear it. It's probably the part where they talk about flat-Earthers.
