Heat Ratio – Episode 19


The Philadelphia 76ers have taken the NBA by storm and are now advancing to the next round of the NBA Playoffs for the first time since the 2011/2012 season.  Has Brett Brown finally put the naysayers to rest? Why do the national media still give BC all the credit with no mention of Sam Hinkie?

Speaking of the youngsters, youth sports have taken over the world and probably your life. In this day and age, everyone has to be on a travel team with the in-house programs left on the back burner. Has it spun out of control? If so, who is at fault and why?
