Plus we talk about some of the trade deadline transactions; if I’m allowed to even look at a Raps Bandwagon application; and a lot more.

* I say “Surprisingly” because there were plenty of people thinking this was a lost season. Don’t worry though, just listen to the podcast. We’ll dive into it a little deeper….
