This is Prime Cuts! The best of The Colin Cowherd Podcast. First, (3:00) Colin explains why Lamar Jackson isn’t a top 10 QB, and why journalists claiming inside knowledge about the length of the upcoming Deshaun Watson suspension don't have a clue.
Then, (8:00) New York Times best-selling author and contributor Chuck Klosterman discusses his latest book, The Nineties: A Book, the coverage of Michael Jordan’s pursuit of a baseball career, the difference in media in the MJ and LeBron eras, and the case for KD becoming an unapologetic, permanent NBA mercenary.
Next, (26:00) The Athletic NBA Writer Marcus Thompson on what it was like watching the Warriors clinch in Boston, why the trade market for Kevin Durant has been so limited, if Chet Holmgren can handle the nightly punishment of an NBA season, and if Russell Westbrook still has value in the right situation.
Finally, (44:00) 3 and Out podcast Host John Middlekauff on possible landing spots for Jimmy G with Baker Mayfield in Carolina, if the Niners have doubts about Trey Lance heading into camp, if Zach Wilson tabloid headlines are cause for bigger concern, and if the Patriots are in big trouble without Josh McDaniels calling plays.
