This week, our full KTSPod team are back together in studio to discuss the NBA and NHL postseasons, regular season awards being handed out in the NBA. Plus, NFL draft talk, top picks getting traded and Josh Norman lands in D.C. Our panel also reflects on the passing of sports figures Dwayne “Pearl” Washington, Will Smith, Joanie “Chyna” Laurer, and music icon Prince.

All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.
