It’s The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker! Chris and Rob discuss how Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts made a great mistake replacing Pedro Baez in Game 1 of the World Series in favor of Alex Wood because 'analytics said so', and how analytics are ruining other sports because they don't take into account the human element. And, the guys debate whether or not tonight's matchup with the Phoenix Suns is a must-win for LeBron James and the Lakers. Plus, former all-pro running back and NFL Network analyst Maurice Jones-Drew joins the show to discuss the latest news surrounding Steelers running back Le’veon Bell, and former all-pro defensive end, host of ‘Speak for Yourself’ on FS1 and author of the new book ‘Never Shut Up’ Marcellus Wileys stops by the studio to talk about his upbringing in Compton, the flaws in the current NFL collective bargaining agreement, why some people have a problem with Chris Paul’s barking, and so much more! Plus, Chris Broussard goes through his Big Six announcing who he thinks have been the 6 best players through the first week of the NBA season, and the guys deliver another award-winning edition of The Hot Seat with Jonas Knox!
