Special Preview - Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre - The NBA is Punishing LeBron + ESPN NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller
Play • 36 min

On today's episode, Jason shares a quick thought on the reveal of the Los Angeles Lakers' schedule entering the second half of the season. It is absolutely brutal. If there was ever any concern about LeBron James running himself into the ground before the playoffs start it's only going to be amplified in the second half. The Lakers have 8 back-to-back games; it almost feels like the NBA is punishing The King for being so vocal about his displeasure for the All-Star Game. If Frank Vogel is smart, he'll make sure to load manage LeBron liberally until the postseason. Later, TheDraftScout.com founder and ESPN NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller swings by to explain why he feels like Alabama quarterback Mac Jones is a 2nd round prospect who could get pushed up into the 1st round because so many NFL teams are desperate for quarterbacks, why he's not buying the notion that Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is suddenly falling down draft boards, why he views Penn State edge rusher Jayson Oweh as a player who has the potential to be great in the NFL even his production wasn't that great last season, why he doesn't believe that either Alabama wide receivers - Jaylen Waddle and Devonta Smith - are locks to go in the top 10 of the Draft, the method behind the madness behind every mock draft he puts out, why he believes that Ohio State cornerback Shaun Wade's stock fell so far since the beginning of the season, and much more!
