"Three years since they last broadcast a Wizards game together..." -- no way! That's spring of 2017. They did the 2017-18 season! ...didn't they?

Kara Lawson was the color analyst but yes, Phil did several games in 2017-18 at home in a 2-man, 1 woman booth or just a 2-man booth with Buck when Kara was doing her ESPN duties for College Basketball.

Falk seemed to be ripping Wall a fair bit here. It seemed like he was referring to him as the anonymous player who was taken in the top 5. Unless he's talking about Beal, and I don't think he's changed agents.

Falk is relishing this MJ time to talk about what a great agent he is/was. He loves the attention. He has some good stories, but I'd rather hear Phil and Buck talk about the old days and travel stories. I'd also rather hear Buck slam Zach and Ted, but he won't go there because I guess he wants to protect Phil since he still works for them.

It's a tough listen due to the lack of technology. You can barely hear Phil. Earl was a good guest, but they are really going for the 65+ and up crowd. I don't need guests from the sixties and seventies unless it's Elvin Hayes or Wes. How about just babbling for an hour about stories of the road. That's what I thought this podcast was going to be about?

Great episode! Definitely check it out of you haven't heard it yet. I do miss those teams. When I think about those teams, I wish they could of kept things together. I liked Eddie, Gil was amazing... I really wish they had kept Hughes, along with Caron, and with Jamison, and Jeffries, Haywood, Etan, Songaila, Daniels...

Overall, I think the podcast has been disappointing, because I was expecting good stories other than the Abe's brother hotel story in Portland where Michael Jordan moved the team to a fancier hotel.

But the Gilbert Arenas episode was great. Buck asking him about retiring his uniform and Gil understanding that it was a business decision for Ted. It's a shame that the gun episode defined his career at the end, because Arenas is such a charismatic, smart, goofy, incredibly honest and great storyteller. He would have been great as a color commentator over Drew Gooden or even Tough Juice.
