NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry and award winning journalist Cyrus Saatsaz delve into what is becoming increasingly obvious, that journalists such as Rachel Nichols and major sports networks such as ESPN are exhibiting subtle yet obvious media bias towards Nike athletes, and especially LeBron James, while discriminating heavily against the Golden State Warriors and in general athletes who don't fit the Nike-LeBron narrative, with Cyrus adding a huge reason for media hatred toward Kevin Durant is him joining the Warriors prevented LeBron from winning more World Championships. The Warriors' trade for Andrew Wiggins was discussed with Rick and Cyrus both agreeing it was a great move and Rick adding that he loves Wiggins' comments on criticism from media. Rick and Cyrus analyzed in detail why waiting until the summer to trade D'Angelo Russell would've been a potentially disastrous decision. Rick talked about his guest appearance many years ago on the TV show Coach, and why he made the decision to play in the ABA. Rick and Cyrus both agreed that with the incredible start to Zion Williamson's NBA career he's a candidate for Rookie of the Year honors. The shitshow that is the New York Knicks continues which led to Cyrus putting Rick on the 24 second shot clock and asking him to name five players on the team, Rick presented his new NBT² (Nothing But The Truth) for the week and the show wraps up with what drives Rick and Cyrus crazy.
