0:15 A growing number of NBA players including Trevor Ariza and Davis Bertans are choosing to to sit out for the rest of the 2019-20 season for a variety reasons. Do you agree with their decisions, given the increasing amount of coronavirus cases, but at the expense of their teams?

6:15 Bubba Wallace, NASCAR’s only black driver and outspoken Black Lives Matter advocate, found an alleged noose in his garage a day before the delayed GIECO 500 race at Talladega. How did you react to the news and what were your thoughts on NASCAR’s response?
