South Korea pro basketball is apparently set to return at the end of the month…a light at the end of the tunnel

  • ESPN’s Michele Steele reported Tuesday that South Korea aggressively tested for COVID-19, and after a 4-week hiatus for pro basketball, they have games back on the schedule to continue at the end of the month
  • Is that a good sign that this might be over sooner than people expect in America, or not? Also, are you going to try and watch those games now?

In a world without sports for the next 50 days or more…could the NFL Draft save the day with a crazy change in concept?

  • Former NFL player Ross Tucker was on The Dan Patrick Show on Monday and gave an idea that said instead of doing the NFL Draft’s first round on 1 day in late April, with the current situation in the sports world, we should do one pick per day from early April to early May for every team, and then do the next 6 rounds over 2 days like normal
  • Is it a crazy idea or something that could be pulled off? Look at all the attention the NFL has received this week already with free agency…it’s dominating the news cycle. It could do even more if it saved the month of April with a month-long draft

The Houston Texans can’t possibly be as dumb as they appeared to be on Monday…right?

  • NFL Free agency began, and lots of contracts were signed—but the weirdest transaction of the day was a trade, as the Cardinals traded RB David Johnson and a 4th round pick to the Texans for star WR Deandre Hopkins, a 2nd round pick, and a 4th round pick. WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU DOING, HOUSTON
