Episode 2662: Rory Rolls Into LA, Jokic Wants To Roll Home, Dublin Murph’s ‘Cynical’ Transfer
It’s been far, far too long since we heard from US Murph, but we break the drought today with a brilliant chat about Nikola Jokic, the big Serbian who led the Denver Nuggets to their first ever NBA championship earlier this week.
We also talk about the growing influence of foreign players in the NBA, with the imminent and possibly seismic arrival of Victor Wembanyama into the league in a couple of weeks. And with the US Open starting tomorrow, we get Brian’s thoughts, and the thoughts of Irish journalist Joe Callaghan, who followed Rory McIlroy around the Canadian Open last week.
Plus there’s ‘trusting the fat boy’, US Murph’s hard-line stance on GAA transfers, 8-foot wingspans and we reminisce about the late, great Christy Dignam.
