Bruce Bernstein fills in for Mike Wise this week and welcomes their Pure Hoops Media teammate Monica McNutt, co-host of the Buckets, Boards, & Blocks podcast. Monica shares her thoughts on last week's riot at the US Capital in Washington and how it looked to African Americans like 76ers coach Doc Rivers who saw how violent rioters were treated differently than peaceful demonstrators who happened to be minorities. Monica and Bruce also discuss how WNBA players mobilized to help defeat Georgia Senatorial candidate Kelly Loeffler by supporting her opponent, the Rev. Raphael Warnock who becomes the first African American Senator in Georgia's history. Monica also co-hosts "MSG A.M." on the MSG Network in New York and Monica shares her perspective on the solid start by the Knicks as well as the early "issues" surrounding Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets. All of this and much more on the new Mike Wise Show.
